Simulation for electronics cooling

Electronics used within products are constantly changing and improving, but the need to ensure proper cooling of these components remains key to producing a successful product. The system level packaging of these products is complex and engineers have a difficult task understanding the products operating environment when making design decisions.

So what would you design differently if you had the ability to see the invisible elements, like airflow and heat transfer? Given the superpower to see the invisible elements, you too can make informed design decisions more quickly and determine the optimal design solution for your products.

Electronics cooling challenges

Autodesk® CFD gives engineers the ability to see the invisible within their product designs. Applying this ability to electronics cooling challenges delivers amazing results. With the ability to visualise and analyse the airflow and thermal conditions of products, you can optimise the design accordingly. Using CFD Simulation, you can overcome common electronics cooling challenges like the following:

Reduced product size

Increasing performance

Reducing cost

Extending product lifespan

Circuit board optimisation

See the invisible

See how Autodesk CFD can give you the ability to see the invisible elements regardless of which CAD system you use. Watch the videos to learn how you can determine the airflow and thermal output of your products during the design process and tackle some of the most common electronics cooling challenges head on.
