Web Presentation: Heatsink 101 - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know
Mentor Graphics are pleased to present this complimentary on-line event. We will focus on how heat sinks work and how to design a heat sink while considering all the critical factors such as size, airflow, cost and attachment methods. We will also investigate how, using simulation, the heat sink design could be optimized and validated in the application environment. Engineers involved in board and chassis design would find this session very educational.

Web Presentation: Heatsink 101 - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know
Wednesday Nov 18, 2009
1PM US/Eastern
6pm UK London

Overview
As the power density of electronics devices go up, so does the need for chip and system thermal management. One way to cool the components down is to add a heat sink. Heat sinks uses conduction, convection and sometimes radiation to enhance the heat transfer from a hot surface to a cooler fluid. Many factors such as cost, manufacturability and weight need to be considered when choosing a heat sink. How the heat sink gets attached to the component is also critical.

During this 45 minute presentation, we will focus on how heat sinks work and how to design a heat sink while considering all the critical factors such as size, airflow, cost and attachment methods. We will also investigate how, using simulation, the heat sink design could be optimized and validated in the application environment. Engineers involved in board and chassis design would find this session very educational.

What You Will Learn
  • How to design a heat sink for a specific electronics cooling application
  • To visualize the airflow around the heat sink and identify potential bypass areas
  • Estimate heat sink thermal resistance
  • Use Response Surface Optimization to come up with the best heat sink design for the considered environment
