Electrical and thermal design of electronics systems are often siloed between different teams with little interaction. Collaborative designs require time and effort to coordinate and iterate if the initial designs prove inadequate. Design and simulation tools used by development teams may not prioritize the mutual exchange of information and data.

Circuit designers usually assume constant temperatures for heat-generating components in their circuits. Similarly, thermal designers assume constant thermal power dissipations based on the estimated currents and voltages in the system. However, the current and voltage drop in any system are affected by temperature and vice versa.

Teams need to perform electro-thermal simulations using accurate and validated thermal models of the components

Join this webinar to learn how ROHM Co. Ltd. of Japan, a leading provider of semiconductor components, enables their customers to reduce costly re-spins and increase productivity through electro-thermal simulation of their designs.

You will learn:

  • What Reduced Order Models (ROMs) are and how can you use them in your circuit simulation
  • How Simcenter Flotherm's BCI-ROM models enable rapid electro-thermal simulations
  • How system architects can quickly assess the electrical and thermal performances of their designs using the ROHM solution simulator
  • About case studies that illustrate the benefits of simulator usage
