New Mentor FloTHERM XT release simulates complex geometries with ease, speed and accuracy
Mentor, a Siemens business, announced the latest release of the FloTHERM® XT electronics cooling software product with advanced thermal management capabilities. Based on the electronics cooling DNA of the Mentor market-leading FloTHERM technology and the FloEFD™ CAD-centric philosophy, the award-winning FloTHERM XT product is the industry’s first integrated mechanical design automation (MDA) and electronic design automation (EDA) electronics cooling solution. This latest version of the FloTHERM XT product offers new functionalities developed from customer feedback to effectively simulate thermal effects of complex geometries.
Key capabilities in this new FloTHERM XT release include simulation of spinning parts in electronic enclosures; temperature-dependent power simulation; enhanced “Design of Experiments” parametric studies functionality to determine best design coverage; and thermal territory simulation when using various component materials. These features are important for electronics devices used in the transportation, aerospace, defense, and consumer electronics markets.
