Beyond a Heatsink - Thermal Considerations in PCB Design
'Thermal' is a design item that we might expect only the mechanical engineers to consider and use flow simulation tools such as those found in SOLIDWORKS and other mechanical design tools. One must keep in mind that component selection and placement has a tremendous impact on the simulation results. The old saying 'nip it in the bud' is very quite germane here, and catching thermal issues early is a perfect example of this phrase.
Understanding thermal issues don't require a degree or training in thermodynamics. It simply understands what needs to be exported from your PCB design and set up the simulation in the proper tools.
This webinar will explore the workflow for testing thermal flow for a PCB. This webinar will be presented by Bill Dempsey, a PCB design engineer who has provided thermal simulation services to multiple clients.
