Altair Acquires TES International’s Software, Hires Key Technologist


Reading time ( words)

Altair (ALTR), developer of the popular HyperWorks computer-aided engineering software suite, has acquired Michigan-based TES International’s technology, intellectual property, and other assets. TES was founded in 1994 to service the “electronics cooling” market, and provides cross-industry software solutions for thermal design and packaging, custom programming, general heat transfer, stress and vibration analysis, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Their main CFD software, ElectroFlo, is an electronics cooling package designed for high power-density applications.

“As an advanced electronics thermal management software package, ElectroFlo is fundamentally based on a multiphysics and multi-discipline solution methodology,” said Dr. Ben Zandi, former Founder, Chairman & CTO at TES International, now VP of Software Development for Thermal Solutions at Altair.  “For this reason Altair, with its unmatched offering of innovative technologies, provides the ideal environment for ElectroFlo to flourish. Combining it with AcuSolve can provide thermal solutions for applications with complex flow interactions, while coupling with Altair’s Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) technologies will provide users a broad set of solutions for electronic applications.”

ElectroFlo is an efficient thermal analysis software that combines the power of coupled thermal/electrical analysis with a user-friendly graphical interface to provide solutions for complex problems. It incorporates coupled thermal/electrical algorithms, improving analysis results accuracy for systems containing wires and traces. The software can be used to simulate electronics ranging from components and printed circuit boards to full systems, and is particularly useful for designing high-current applications.

“ElectroFlo is a great extension to our thermal simulation portfolio,” said Dr. Uwe Schramm, CTO at Altair. “There is a lot of synergy with AcuSolve 3D CFD which has been widely used for thermal management in a multitude of use cases. Having Dr. Zandi on board will accelerate our work in a number of areas, including electronics applications supported with electromagnetics simulation using Flux and FEKO.”

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What concerns do you have about the future? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

TUM Hyperloop Team Learns PCB Design on Way to Setting World Speed Record

02/14/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At AltiumLive Munich, I met with Tobias Bobrzik, a Technical University of Munich student and member of the TUM Hyperloop team. In 2018, the TUM Hyperloop team’s prototype pod set the world speed record of 290 miles per hour, which lead to their meeting with Musk. Tobias designed some of the PCBs used in that vehicle, so I asked him to tell us more about this experience, and what he hopes to do after graduation.
