Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Aided by Coolit, Calgreg is saving its customers money and building the kind of customer relations that result in repeat business from satisfied buyers. The heat sink manufacturer, who services a spectrum of industries, creates custom designs that are frequently better than what the customer asks for.

When a computer chip company developed a thermal solution for its new server chip, the company only expected the vendor to fabricate the design. The company was pleasantly surprised when Calgreg told them it could create a custom heat sink that would be better and less expensive than the in-house design.

Application: Heatsink Designers Turn to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Posted Wed January 18, 2006 @10:19AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application The accelerated release of faster desktop computers being sold at lower prices into the market place has forced thermal engineers to develop and optimize thermal solutions that not only perform better thermally and acoustically, but deliver more value with less weight than previous generations. The continuing reduction in form factor has also increased the challenge placed on today's thermal management designs.

To meet these challenges, Tyco Electronics utilized CFD analysis to optimize both cost and thermal performance of next generation radial folded fin (RFF) heat sinks. This optimized thermal solution approach produced a scalable design capable of meeting the rapidly evolving requirements of the computer market.
