SEMI-THERM is one of the premier thermal management conferences and has the most targeted exhibition by far, with some 40+ exhibitors, including Mentor Graphics as Platinum Sponsor, so it’s a great place to network with people in the ‘cooling business’.

The exhibition is FREE TO ATTEND, so if you’re in the bay area and interested in thermal management stop by and see us at the DoubleTree Hotel and see what’s new in FloTHERM and our T3Ster hardware range. The exhibition is in the afternoons of Tuesday March 11 and Wednesday March 12.

The free entry to the exhibition also comes with some nice FREE TO ATTEND perks:
• Vendor Workshops – come and hear the latest news from Mentor Graphics on our hardware and software product developments
• Exhibitor Reception – this is from 6pm to 6:45pm on Wednesday
• Product Tear Down Session – This also takes place on Wednesday, from 7.30pm to 9pm. It’s new this year and promises to be very informative with presenters from Electronic Cooling Solutions and Cisco Inc.

The conference Awards luncheon takes place on Thursday 13th March, at which the THERMI and Harvey Rosten Awards are presented. The latter recognises excellence in thermal design and is sponsored by Mentor Graphics in honor of one of the founders of Flomerics, Harvey Rosten. It is awarded for work published during the year, and this year the award goes to Wendy Luiten at Philips for her paper “Solder joint Lifetime of Rapid Cycled LED Components”, which was presented at THERMINIC in Berlin in September 2013.

The JEDEC JC15 Thermal Standards Committee meeting takes place on the Friday following SEMI-THERM. This is something the Mechanical Analysis Division has been involved with since 1995. If you’re not familiar with JEDEC you can visit the web site to download free thermal standards and so benefit from the committee’s work. Recent standards include JESD51-14 for transient measurement of Rjc, which T3Ster supports.

I’m looking forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new ones. If you’re going to the conference see you in a couple of weeks!

About John Parry

John ParryI started my career in the consultancy group at CHAM Ltd., using PHOENICS for a variety of CFD applications. From the consultancy group I moved into support, helping customers debug models, and figuring out how to model new applications. That broadened into delivering training courses and creating training material. I was invited to join Flomerics when it started in 1989 to head up Customer Services, and I jumped at the chance to work for a startup. After a few years supporting customers using FloTHERM I moved across into research, developing thermofluid models of common electronic parts, like fans and IC packages, later managing the DELPHI and SEED projects. More recently I worked with Flomerics’ Finance Director on the acquisition of MicReD, helping to integrate MicReD’s business into Flomerics Group which was great fun. Since Flomerics acquired Nika, I’ve been responsible for promoting the FloEFD suite in education, and moved into marketing. I now work as part of the Mechanical Analysis Division’s Corporate Marketing group, responsible for ElectronicsCooling Magazine and the division’s Higher Education Program. Expertise: I’m a chemical engineer by training and did a PhD in reactor design before getting involved with CFD more than 25 years ago. Visit John Parry’s Blog
