FloTHERM uses advanced CFD techniques to predict airflow, temperature, and heat transfer in components, boards, and complete systems, including racks and data centers. It's also the industry's best solution for integration with MCAD and EDA software.
FloTHERM is the undisputed world leader for electronics thermal analysis, with a 98 percent user recommendation rating. It supports more users, application examples, libraries and published technical papers than any competing product.
Accelerated Thermal Design Workflow
FloTHERM integrates with popular MCAD and EDA tools. Its XML import capability simplifies building and solving models, post-processing results automatically. FloTHERM's automatic sequential optimization and DoE capabilities reduces the time it takes to reach optimized design, allowing it to be deeply embedded in the design flow.
Robust Meshing and Fast Solver
FloTHERM lets engineers focus on design, delivering the most accurate results possible within engineering timescales. Its SmartParts and structured-Cartesian method offers the fastest solution time per grid cell. The FloTHERM “localized-grid” technique supports integrally matched, nested, non-conformal grid interfaces between different parts of the solution domain.
Usability and Intelligent Thermal Models
Integral model checking in FloTHERM lets users see which objects have attached material, the power attached to every object, and corresponding assembly-level power dissipation. It also identifies whether the object is creating a mesh line.
FloTHERM SmartParts represent ICs to full racks of electronics from a large list of suppliers, streamlining model creation to minimize solve times and maximize solution accuracy.
Thermal Characterization and Analysis from Component to System
Combine FloTHERM with T3Ster transient thermal characterization for thermal simulation of real-world electronics. Since reliability of components can decrease exponentially due to heat problems, using T3Ster lets manufacturers design chips, ICs, and PCBs of superior thermal performance. They can also publish reliable thermal data for downstream applications.
Equipment manufacturers and systems integrators can design more reliable products, avoiding thermally induced failures throughout the product’s lifetime.
