Introduction to DynTIM



This webinar will give an introduction to DynTIM, Mentor Graphics’ new solution for the quick and accurate characterization of thermal interface materials. After a brief introduction, the operation of DynTIM will be discussed in details and an overview of its most important characteristics will be given. This will be followed by measurement examples on different material types: soft materials such as thermal greases, viscoelastic materials such as gap pads and solid materials such as metallic sheets. The presentation will end with a possible methodology for the determination of the measurement parameters such, that the measurement error is kept low.

What You Will Learn

  • The importance of the proper selection of thermal interface materials for electronics applications
  • How to get the most accurate measurement of the thermal conductivity of a TIM
  • The operational principle of DynTIM and how these lead to the highest measurement accuracy
  • How DynTIM supports fast and reliable measurements compared to steady-state methods
  • Some important practical considerations for the measurement of TIM materials
