Electronics Cooling Simulation with FloTHERM XT: Step Change by Incorporating the EDA and MCAD Design Flows



FloTHERM XT - the brand new electronics cooling product from Mentor Graphics. Join us for this web seminar where we will introduce you to the newest member of the Mechanical Analysis family!

We will show you how FloTHERM XT draws together the EDA and MCAD design flows, resulting in a cleaner, symbiotic design process and allowing the latest data to be shared easily and efficiently between relevant team members.  Additionally, we will illustrate how the software can be used in practice to evolve designs from a concept stage all the way through to final design verification.

The session will describe how both thermal experts and design engineers can take advantage of FloTHERM XT as they develop the best cooling strategy, while keeping pace with other design constraints and changes as the overall system design evolves.

What You Will Learn

  • Discover a major new product from Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division
  • Learn how FloTHERM XT complements our other electronics cooling product lines
  • Learn a new way of working that will speed up and optimize your thermal design process
  • See the new capabilities of this product, including full support for angled geometry and complex shapes

About the Presenter
