Mentor Graphics Corporation, a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products and consulting services, has released FloTHERM XT 3.2, is a unique, award-winning thermal simulation solution that can be used during all stages of the electronics design process – from conceptual design to manufacturing – improving product quality, reliability and time-to-market.
This solution addresses two of today’s trends which are electronic challenges and geometric complexity. The electronic challenges are driven by increasing speed, density, and power consumption of ICs, PCBs and electronic systems. The increasing geometric complexity is driven by decreasing size and the increased influence of industrial design which requires handling of complex shapes. The FloTHERM XT technology efficiently interconnects mechanical design automation (MDA) and electronic design automation (EDA) domains and addresses the needs of design engineers as well as thermal specialists.
Mentor Graphics FloTHERM XT 3.2
This electronics cooling simulation solution enables earlier virtual prototyping, fewer design iterations, and advanced “what-if” analysis for improved product quality and faster time-to-market benefits. Key markets where the FloTHERM XT product can benefit design teams from components to systems of electronic applications are industries such as automotive, aerospace, telecommunications, computing, industrial automation and consumer electronics.
Combining the electronics cooling DNA from the Mentor Graphics(R) Corporation’s market-leading FloTHERM(R) thermal analysis software, and Concurrent Computational Fluid Dynamic (Concurrent CFD) technology from the FloEFD(TM) product, the FloTHERM XT solution offers the power and performance to solve complex electronics systems design problems. The product’s easy-to-use interface is fully configurable so new users can customize the functionality features on the screen, providing a scalable user experience that can be adapted as the needs of the design project change.
Imported or CAD-generated geometries work seamlessly with the FloTHERM XT’s SmartPart library of models, and automatic meshing and data convergence provide significant reduction in execution times. It also provides an easy and intuitive direct interface to enterprise platforms such as the market-leading Mentor Expedition(R) Enterprise solution. The direct integration of the FloTHERM XT product with PCB design flows will reduce time-consuming data translation and costly errors. As a result, FloTHERM XT is the only solution on the market that allows engineers to work effortlessly with geometry created in the MDA or EDA world.
