New Software: New CFD Software Liberates PCB Designers
Posted Fri July 15, 2005 @03:20PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News New, powerful and highly affordable CoolitPCB frees PCB designers to do their own board level thermal analyses. EEs now can accurately predict the thermal behavior of their designs and pinpoint optimum component placement on their boards. There is no need for expert knowledge of heat transfer or CFD; CoolitPCB's intelligent user interface steers the user through the solution process. But users shouldn’t be fooled by this simplicity. Under the hood is the robust, proven and advanced computational engine, developed by Daat Research Corp., that has been successfully used for hundreds of design projects.

At $3900 for a perpetual license, CoolitPCB costs a small fraction of competing tools, yet there is no compromise in functionality. The software will enable the import of board designs from CAD and EDA software, perform testing for standard JEDEC forced, free convection, slots as well as custom setups.

News CAD User Magazine has posted a review of CFdesign 8.0 from a design engineer's perspective.
A company called Blue Ridge Numerics has produced a software package that gives design engineers the opportunity of extending the role of their model into the analytical arena. After all, parametric modelling incorporates within the model just those properties that the computational fluid dynamic software needs to perform its function. All it needed was the right sort of human interface that converted the CFD codes and practices into the methodology that the designer already understands – CAD!

News Alion Science and Technology Corp. of McLean won a five-year, $49.6 million contract from the Environmental Protection Agency to provide technical support in developing methods to determine air quality and assess the effect of atmospheric pollutants and other toxic materials on human health.
As part of the contract work, Alion also will write the simulation program that analyzes the test results. The program combines computational fluid dynamics, a simulation of the flow of air around a solid body, with how humans breathe air in and out and a statistical model that measures the variability of particulate concentrations in air, Amos said.
