World Leader in Electronics Cooling Hardware and Software
Mentor Graphics is the clear market and technology leader of thermal analysis software for the electronics industry. It has led the market with thermal simulation and analysis solutions for over a decade and has developed the largest installed base of any thermal design tool provider.
Using Mentor Graphics Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, engineers can efficiently predict airflow and heat transfer in and around electronic devices, which run at faster speeds and dissipate more power with every new generation.
One of the primary issues with electronics cooling is airflow optimization – how to ensure the devices receive the right amount of natural or forced ventilation delivered and in the most effective way possible. CFD can help you to not only visualize the flow but also optimize it. More
Package Thermal Design and Characterization
Thermal management is a vital aspect of package design. Mentor Graphics’ thermal design software ensures correct package performance, confirmed by measurement hardware that characterizes active die across all package families including system-in-package, stacked-die and MCMs. More
PCB Thermal Design
Power consumption at board-level is increasing, forcing the use of heatsinks. However, heatsinks added in late design can have a disastrous effect on downstream components in the wake of the heatsink; thus resulting in multiple board respins. Reduce PCB respin by using thermal design software. More
Package Junction and Case Temperature Prediction
Accurate temperature prediction is essential to meet internal design rules yet avoid costly overdesign. Vendors specify maximum temperature limits, making accurate prediction essential for warranty compliance. More
Heatsink Selection and Design
The performance, reliability and life expectancy of electronic equipment are all strongly influenced by component temperature. Design the best heatsink solution to enhance heat dissipation from your hottest components with the help of thermal simulation. More
Using “guesstimates” to choose suitable fans may result in over-engineering or worse yet in selecting a fan which doesn’t provide enough cooling air. Select the best fan for the job by understanding which fan best matches your system pressure drop curve. More
