EDN Hot 100 Award for FloEFD

I normally don’t do posts about these kinds of things but I was really excited to hear this. Recently FloEFD was given an EDN Magazine’s Hot 100 Electronic Products for 2009 award. The Hot 100 consists of EDN’s list of “the products and technologies that in 2009 heated up the electronics world and grabbed the attention of our editors and our readers.”


I know I’m a proud parent but FloEFD is pretty cool.  Because FloEFD is embedded in CAD, it helps users integrate the CFD process into their overall design process.  Due to its heavy integration with CAD and its underlying technology, FloEFD offers users feedback on their designs quickly. As a matter of fact, users have found that FloEFD can reduce simulation time by as much as 65 to 75% when compared with traditional CFD tools.  We call this technology Concurrent CFD.  It really is a fantastic bit of technology and it’s for a lot more than just electronics. If you haven’t had a chance to see FloEFD in action, then you may want to watch one of these short on-demand video clips — you’ll find a whole slew of products being evaluated and improved.

And for those of you who voted for FloEFD, here’s a big thank you for making us one of the Hot 100.

Until next time,

EDN Hot 100, Physical Prototype, Embedded
