Flomerics announced ready-to-run thermal models for Philips' power semiconductors available to designers via the SmartParts3D web site. Design engineers can download complex, calibrated thermal models of power semiconductor packages from Philips to incorporate in their Flotherm thermal simulations. Models are available for the TO220 series packages, and models for isolated TO220, D2-PAK, D-PAK, SOT223, SO8 and LFPAK packages are expected to follow soon. The web-based library contains models for fans, heat sinks, air filters, and interface materials as well as IC and power semiconductor packages. The library is searchable by part family, description, manufacturer, model number, and performance criteria.
