Awards & Publications
Mentor Graphics’ Mechanical Analysis Division has accumulated a number of prestigious awards and influenced key publications over the years. We regularly collect five or six awards from our products each year. Members of our division excel in their professional disciplines. Mentor’s FloTHERM & FloVENT are the most-referenced CFD simulation tools in the IEEE citations.
“Harvey Rosten Award” for Thermal Analysis Excellence
Established in 1997 after Flomeric’s founder, Harvey Rosten’s untimely death, it encourages excellence and innovation in thermal analysis and modeling of electronics parts and systems. An annual award consisting of a plaque and a $1,000 cash prize for outstanding published work in the previous year, the winner is chosen from nominations by the award’s independent selection committee is sponsored.
It is traditionally presented at the annual SEMI-THERM Awards luncheon. Past recipients have included Ari Glezer, Bruce Guenin, Suresh Garimella, Bruno Mitchell, Clemens Lasance and Raghav Mahalingam.
Marta Rencz Honorary Doctorate
Co-founder of MicReD and now R&D Director, Prof Marta Rencz received an honorary doctorate degree from Tallinn University in Estonia in 2013. Tallinn University is Estonia’s leading academic institution for engineering and business, and this award coincides with the university’s 95th anniversary. Dr. Rencz, who is also the head of the Electron Devices Department at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, received the Doctor Honoris Causa degree based on her contributions to the scientific and academic world of thermal transient testing.

Thermal Management for LED Applications
Dr. Andras Poppe from our MicReD group co-edited this prestigious 2013 Springer publication along with Clemens Lasance, a Philips Research Emeritus from the Netherlands. It presents a comprehensive overview of the basics of thermal management as it relates to LEDs and LED-based systems. It discusses both design and thermal management considerations when manufacturing LEDs and LED-based systems. It covers reliability and performance of LEDs in harsh environments plus it has a hands-on applications approach that looks at the importance of thermal management of LEDs in the automotive and aerospace fields.
