FloTHERM XT has been developed to facilitate electronics thermal design from concept to verification, with a consistent data model throughout and the seamless ability to import data from other mechanical design automation (MDA) or EDA sources as required in a particular design process. This design lifecycle support is inherent in FloTHERM XT’s design and infrastructure: using SmartParts to build a simple concept model in minutes; work with complex mechanical parts directly from MCAD; create your own CAD geometry easily and efficiently; and use detailed electronic assemblies from EDA.
FloTHERM XT has a configurable user interface that can be used readily by both full-time thermal experts and by engineers for whom thermal is just one of their responsibilities. FloTHERM XT utilizes the powerful EFD solver and mesher as an enabling technology to give the broadest possible coverage of both simple and complex electronics systems. It is also delivered with Circuit Works, an elegant and powerful IDF, PADS and ProStep import add-on. The software also introduces a new generation FloEDA Bridge module with a direct interface to Expedition Enterprise and includes a powerful update function to keep models concurrent with the latest board design as it evolves.
FloTHERM XT works with non-Cartesian geometry, supporting non-standard form factors, novel Heatsink designs and with arbitrary non-aligned or and curved geometry. It also supports angled PCBs, radial blowers and phase change materials.
FloTHERM XT can be used by Thermal Design Specialists and Researchers, Thermal Designers and Mechanical Design Engineers / CAD users with Thermal Design responsibility. The user interface versatility has been specifically engineered to serve a diverse user group.
