Model-based thermal design for smaller, efficient electronic devices
Thermal design techniques for higher integration and downsizing of electronic devices
With higher performance demands than ever, electronic devices such as mobiles, cameras, and vehicle mounted ECUs are becoming more integrated with sophisticated electronics. In parallel, the pressure to further miniaturise, and therefore densify electronic devices is exacerbating the problem of overheating.
By employing system-level modelling (or 1D simulation) software in the design process thermal design can begin much earlier and large amounts of optimisation can take place before investing in the first physical build. These techniques are helping to ensure safe, effective products for the future of high-performance electronics.
