Announcements Wilde Analysis Ltd will host Managing Thermal Issues in Electronics Design with CFD on April 24th.

Do your designs involve the packaging of electronics within a confined space, potentially leading to thermal management problems? Join our free webinar outlining modern methods used to predict and optimise the thermal performance of electronic systems, including how this can support reliability qualification.

In addition to the typical requirement faced by engineers to package electronic components and systems into increasingly small enclosures, avoiding failure and detrimental performance due to overheating is particularly challenging when:
  • Other considerations preclude the use of fans and place restrictions on grille design
  • Your rack-mounted module is competing for air flow in a crowded chassis
  • You need to design against fan outage

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is an invaluable technique to quantify component temperatures and visualise air flow. ANSYS Icepak is a CFD-based simulation tool specifically designed for the electronics industry, enabling engineers to maximise the use of available air flows and keep temperature-sensitive components within an acceptable envelope.
