FloTHERM is powerful 3D simulation software for thermal design of electronic components and systems. It enables engineers to create virtual models of electronic equipment, perform thermal analysis and test design modifications quickly and easily in the early stages of design process well before any physical prototypes are built. FloTHERM uses advanced CFD (computational fluid dynamics) techniques to predict airflow, temperature and heat transfer in components, boards nd complete systems.

FloTHERM is an industry-specific analysis tool specially designed for a wide range of electronic applications that include:

FloTHERM features specialization, built-in intelligence and automation not found in traditional analysis software. This functionality maximizes productivity for thermal design experts, minimizes the learning curve for mechanical design engineers and provides the highest levels of return on investment available from analysis software. In a small to medium-sized company, FloTHERM can pay for itself several times over in just one year and even faster as the size of the company increases. Experience the benefits of using FloTHERM for thermal design of electronics that include:

FloTHERM is having the following add on modules

A) FloMCAD.Bridge:

FloMCAD.Bridge from Mentor Graphics enables parts and assemblies from Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD) software (such as Pro/Engineer, Solid Works, CATIA, etc.) to be transferred easily and rapidly to and from FloTHERM or thermal analysis.

FloMCAD.Bridge is a software module that enables MCAD (Mechanical Computer Aided Design) geometric data to be converted into FloTHERM objects. FloMCAD.Bridge can import the following data formats: SAT, STEP, IGES, and STL.

FloMCAD.Bridge is based on the ACIS solid modeling kernal from Spatial Technology. Any incoming data is first 'translated' into ACIS format then 'healed' into a solid manifold 3D ACIS object.

FloMCAD.Bridge is upgraded to ACIS R20 providing import support for the following file formats and versions:

FloMCAD Bridge enables parts and assemblies from any mechanical CAD system such as Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks, and CATIA to be transferred easily and rapidly to and from FloTHERM for thermal analysis.

This is a crucial advantage because MCAD solid models often contain a vast amount of thermally insignificant geometric detail. FloMCAD.Bridge is a productivity tool designed to help the engineer speed up and automate the simplification process leading to greater productivity and faster turnaround in thermal analysis.

Features and Benefits


FloTHERM PACK (www.flothermpackcom) is a web-based software program which produces reliable, accurate thermal models of IC packages and associated parts with the minimum of effort. Designed to fulfil the industries need for a rapid response to innovations in packaging design, FloTHERM PACK is a web-based application that contains a parametrically-driven menu for each part type. To take advantage of FloTHERM PACK, you use your standard web browser to enter data describing the IC package you want to use. For example, if you want to build a model of a ball grid array (BGA) package, the typical data entry items would include: number of balls, substrate conductivity, die size, and substrate metal layer thickness and coverage. If you don't have detailed information about the internal geometry of yourpart, the JEDEC Library SmartPart wizard in FloTHERM PACK lets you create"best guess" thermal models quickly and easily. All you need to do is answer three or four questions about your component. Utilizing built-in intelligent rules based on common industry design practices, the SmartPart wizard.
