ASIC Design Services and Mentor to Hold Workshop on Thermal Analysis and Design

Reading time ( words)

ASIC Design Services and Mentor, a Siemens Business, will hold a free workshop on "Thermal Analysis and Design for Electronic Systems", to be presented by Michael  Kasperski, a FloTHERM XT specialist, on July 24, 2018, in Stellenbosch, South Africa, and July 26, 2018, in Midrand, South Africa.

Insufficient cooling can result in schedule delays, low reliability, and increased product costs, especially in high-performance devices where components are densely packed into ever-smaller enclosures. Proper thermal management of the entire design space is essential to delivering on-time, on-budget, reliable electronic products. Understand the heating effects of package selection, PCB layout, and board structure within an enclosure with FloTHERM XT, voted Product of the Year by Electronic Products Magazine.

FloTHERM XT is a unique, award-winning thermal simulation solution that can be used during all stages of the electronics design process. We will show you how FloTHERM XT draws together the EDA and MCAD design flows, resulting in a cleaner, symbiotic design process and allowing the latest data to be shared easily and efficiently between relevant team members.  Additionally, we will illustrate how the software can be used in practice to evolve designs from a concept stage all the way through to final design verification.

We will demonstrate how both thermal experts and design engineers take advantage of FloTHERM XT as they develop the best cooling strategy, while keeping pace with other design constraints and changes as the overall system design evolves.

Cadence Design Systems recently integrated more of its Sigrity capabilities into the front end of its PCB design tools. During DesignCon, Chris Banton of EMA Design Automation spoke with me about how this drive for “model-less analysis” benefits the PCB designer who can now access signal and power integrity, DFM, and electrical rule checking functionality early in the design process and have fewer issues later.

Todd Westerhoff Discusses His New Position and Much More

03/07/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At DesignCon, I met with our old friend Todd Westerhoff, a veteran signal integrity engineer. Todd joined Mentor, a Siemens Business, since we last spoke. We discussed his new job responsibilities, his drive to get more designers and engineers to use SI tools, and the increasing value of cost-reduced design techniques versus overdesigning PCBs.
