Calibrating Electronics Thermal Simulation Models

‘Rubbish In, Rubbish Out’ is a common and well-accepted fact in the world of thermal simulation—actually any type of simulation, for that matter. Regardless of the technical capabilities of your thermal simulation tool, the accuracy of prediction will always be tightly coupled to the accuracy of the input data. In terms of electronics thermal simulation, the prediction of the internal ... » read more

Too Hot To Handle

By Ann Steffora Mutschler It used to be that a device could be designed to a thermal design power. The worst case power scenario would be imagined, and the device would be designed with that in mind. But those good old days are gone. Especially for consumer devices, how a device is going to behave with respect to time, or how people are going to use it, must be understood as completely a... » read more
