We will also investigate how, using simulation, the heat sink design could be optimized and validated in the application environment. Engineers involved in board and chassis design would find this session very educational.

What You Will Learn

  • How to design a heat sink for a specific electronics cooling application
  • To visualize the airflow around the heat sink and identify potential bypass areas
  • Estimate heat sink thermal resistance
  • Use Response Surface Optimization to come up with the best heat sink design for the considered environment
