Thermal Management Design
We work with our customers from the initial concept stage through the final system testing and validation. This end-to-end focus ensures that critical design issues are resolved in a timely manner and that the cost of the design is managed effectively. In many instances we are able to reduce the cost of prototype testing and its impact on schedule.
At the early design stages, we review a customer’s design concepts, perform feasibility studies, carry out risk assessments, complete a high-level analysis of cooling requirements, and provide architectural-level consulting. At the system level, we can determine flow requirements, recommend air movers or pumps, and identify locations for ducting and / or flow channels. Our recommendations are based on a careful analysis of the thermal load, power density, available space system impedance, reliability, safety, expected life-time and regulations.
We address package selection, component placement, and heat sink requirements, as well as high performance thermal solutions when they are needed. Both manufacturing and cost issues are taken into consideration in each of the solutions we recommend.
