Register for “How to Create Cooler Power Systems with Simulation Tools”

As modern electronic systems demand increasingly more power, and power component density increases, eliminating heat is one of the biggest challenges faced by power developers.

Thermal design can be complex and time consuming, with engineers having to review data sheets and application notes to ensure they optimize the cooling of systems. Sometimes estimates are made and then validated by testing real systems to decrease the design time, but the demand for density means that it is more important to calculate the precise condition of the elements of the power system in the customer’s particular application. Fortunately, new simulation tools are being developed that allow preliminary feasibility studies to be conducted in just a few clicks, saving power designers valuable time.
