Trends, Implications & Electronics Thermal Design Needs due to System Electrification

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

For many years we have seen increased computing capability via more powerful microprocessors in higher numbers in products; nearly all of our daily tasks involve some type of computing device.

The electronics in these devices typically involve information processing, delivery and systems controls. More recently electrical power has been increasingly used for the primary drive functions of much larger systems. This electrification has accelerated in industries including automotive, aerospace and marine. Temperature is the key design constraint for both computing and power electronics even with all the advances in designs, processes and materials.

This talk will explore the trends, examine design implications and demonstrate how STAR-CCM+ is uniquely positioned to provide product designers with the right tool to develop their products.
