"EDN's Top 100 Products represents products which our editors have seen and discussed during the past year, and which we feel are especially significant and noteworthy to the electronic design engineering audience we serve,” says Bill Schweber, executive editor of EDN Magazine.
The speed in which CFdesign uses native MCAD models to analyze and qualitatively compare design variations is what sets CFdesign apart from traditional electronics cooling software. On average, implementing CFdesign can reduce the time it takes to develop, test, and prove a new product design by 70% while also reducing the costs associated with staff time and materials by 65%.
The new version of CFdesign focuses on rapid product optimization with new capabilities to enable mainstream product development engineers working on tight deadlines to simulate multiple (10, 20, even 100) design scenarios simultaneously and then interactively visualize, compare, and share simulation results throughout the process.
“There’s a growing need for CFdesign among electronics product engineers and this recognition by EDN is further validation of that,” says Jim Spann, vice president of Marketing for Blue Ridge Numerics. “Business leaders realize the monetary costs and time requirements connected with physical prototyping and testing are eroding profits and competitive advantages. Traditional electronics cooling packages are costly, more difficult to use and were not designed to handle complex, native MCAD assemblies, making them only marginally more attractive than physical prototyping. Industry-leading companies like Digital Receiver Technology, Franklin Electric, Southampton Photonics, and Symbol Technologies are now using CFdesign because it makes good business and engineering sense.”
