Rising To Meet The Thermal Challenge

How design teams can get access to the electronic industry’s first complete electrical-thermal co-simulation solution.


Thermal effects on electrical performance have always existed; processor speed limits are set by thermal limits, and power has been a key concern for the mobile and datacenter markets for a decade. Increased electrical content logically generates more heat, which affects system performance. For example, in the automotive market, ADAS and infotainment systems are drastically increasing automotive electronics content, leaving the problem of thermal effects yet to be solved. With higher data rates, too, comes more heat generated. 400G and 800G Ethernet are supported by 100G ports, which create heat. The PCIe roadmap is predicting 64GT/s, and 5G promises data rates of up to 10Gb/s.
