PCB Software

Version 2 of Flomerics’ FLO/PCB software — developed to enable electronic and thermal engineers to collaborate on printed circuit board (PCB) design — provides a 3D viewer and a conduction-cooled operating environment and automatically calculates maximum power dissipation for a given operating temperature. The 3D viewer allows designers to determine the effect of the height of components on cooling issues. The ability to simulate conduction-cooled environments makes it possible to evaluate boards in sealed enclosures, such as those found in military electronics and ruggedized systems. FLO/PCB users can define maximum allowable junction temperatures for components and the software will compute the maximum power that can be dissipated without exceeding those temperatures. Version 2 also provides thermal solutions for equivalent problems in half the time of the previous version. Finally, new SmartParts are available to represent RF shields.
