Deciding the thermal architecture of a product is often left to the end of the development. This can have disastrous consequences if it turns out that a product has thermal issues. Delays and the additional cost of changes will result.
Project managers often think that decisions about the thermal architecture can only be made when CAD files are available. However, a thermal architecture study can start well before the mechanical concept is fully defined. Based on the global design direction, mechanical and electrical boundary conditions, a thermal architecture study can be started. Defining a good thermal architecture early on can lead to concept choices, and indicate design guidelines before the start of the development phase.
This webinar will discuss how to undertake an early-design architecture study, which parameters to consider during this phase and how to iterate towards a more detailed analysis. In the webinar the subject of accuracy will also be elaborated. The thermal engineer needs to know where to look for potential pitfalls, how to avoid major problems and deal with a complete range architecture.
