Posted by John Parry

John Parry Thermal headroom is a concept I’ve been pushing for a few years, but I guess many people aren’t familiar with it, so I thought some additional commentary would be appropriate. Here goes: What I’ve drawn looks pretty simple. Starting from the ambient we can attribute to total temperature rise for some critical IC to a temperature rise in the air, the PCB and/or heat sink, then the temperature rise in … Read More

Mind Your Head(room)

Posted by John Parry

John Parry In “What’s black and stuck on a PCB?” I promised I’d get back to writing about FloTHERM.PACK and how it can really help your thermal modelling by helping you build accurate thermal models of chip packages. Assuming you’ve been using FloTHERM or FloTHERM.PCB without FloTHERM.PACK I guess I first need convince you about why you should bother. To help me do that I’d like to introduce you to the concept … Read More
