CFD-based thermal simulation and design tools have traditionally been aimed at engineers with specialist knowledge. However, CFD-based thermal simulation users now include mechanical design engineers, electrical engineers, and industrial designers.
New solutions in the marketplace now allow for EDA-friendly CFD-based thermal design solutions that are quick, reliable and integrated into fast-moving, complex design processes. This allows the design engineer to have useful-accurate solutions in hours rather than weeks without a reduction in accuracy.
Read “What to Look for in a Thermal Design Solution” to understand the factors that should be taken into consideration.
