Siemens Simcenter Flotherm XT 2304.0
FloTHERM XT is a unique, award-winning thermal simulation solution that can be used during all stages of the electronics design process – from conceptual design to manufacturing – improving product quality, reliability and time-to-market.
Compress the Electronics Thermal Design Process
FloTHERM XT tightly couples the MCAD and EDA design flows and cuts design process times by factor of at least 2 when compared to traditional general-purpose simulation products. This enables designers and thermal specialists to quickly and efficiently arrive at an optimum solution.
New CAD-centric Approach to Thermal Engineering
A CAD-centric user interface, as well as geometry engine for complex and arbitrary shaped geometries, enables users to quickly become productive. FloTHERM XT offers CAD connectivity and advanced CAD modeling capabilities which considerably shorten the learning curve.
Fast, Accurate Model Creation and Simulation
Full geometric and non-geometric SmartParts and library capabilities enable users to access a full set of the most popular components for fast and accurate model creation.
Parametric Studies for Optimized Designs
FloTHERM XT’s fully integrated environment for defining, solving and analyzing results using parametric variations of geometry, attributes (e.g. material, thermal) plus solution parameters significantly enhances the design optimization process. Its “Design of Experiments” scenario table allows users to set up a number of studies to ensure the best coverage of the design field. These scenarios may also be sent to remote machines with more capacity.
Advanced EDA Interfacing
FloTHERM XT’s interoperability with PCB design flows reduces time-consuming data translation and costly errors. It provides an easy and intuitive direct interface to Mentor Xpedition® and its ODB++ interface supports Cadence, Zuken and Altium. Any board and component layout can be imported and easily modified for position, size, orientation, shape and modeling level prior to transfer to FloTHERM XT. And with the addition of thermal territory simulation, FloTHERM XT supports detailed copper “under the component” models which are used to draw heat away from that component, further improving accuracy. That is why FloTHERM XT is the only solution on the market that allows engineers to work effortlessly with geometry created in the MDA or EDA world.
