1 Easy-to-Use CFD for Electronics Design Thermal Design in Half the Time

2 Introducing 6SigmaET 6SigmaET is a thermal modelling tool that uses advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to create accurate models of electronic equipment. Designed specifically for the electronics industry, our software is tailored to meet your requirements and to help you overcome thermal design challenges. Thermal simulation is a key element of the engineering design process. 6SigmaET enables you to create and solve models quickly, giving you the information you need to make the right decisions without delaying the design process. It allows you to verify your electronic designs before manufacture, and optimise them to ensure the best thermal performance, reducing your time to market. I want simulation results that are easy to understand. Analysing your results using 6SigmaET is simple. Each intelligent object reports simulation results tailored to that object type. Temperature values can be plotted directly onto the surface of objects, or onto a result plane. Airflow patterns can be examined as planes of vectors or as 3D streamline plots. I want accurate results. Accurate 6SigmaET s powerful solver gives you simulation results you can rely on. It can solve large models with complex geometry, so you can include the amount of detail needed to get accurate results. Our customers have validated 6SigmaET against real-world measured temperatures, and have found excellent agreement. Have a look at our case studies if you re not convinced.

3 A p p l i c a ti ons Consumer Electronics Modern technology for modern design. Industrial When reliability and endurance matter. Consumer electronics are becoming smaller and more powerful, and this increases the thermal challenge they present to you. Import the complete CAD geometry of your device into 6SigmaET, and import your PCB designs from EDA design software. Store parts in the 6SigmaET Library for re-use in your future projects. Use 6SigmaET to validate your thermal equipment designs before they are used in mission-critical applications, to ensure they are reliable and robust enough to operate in harsh industrial environments. The powerful parallel solver lets you solve large and complicated models quickly, so you can model in detail and get accurate results. IT Equipment Straight out of the box. Outdoor Electronics Robust. Rugged. Refined. Configure 6SigmaET s simulation environment to match any harsh environment your equipment will operate in. Use our solar intensity calculator to calculate the intensity of solar radiation based on your device s location, orientation and time of day. Import complex heat sink designs into your model, or use 6SigmaET s built-in heat sink object to create the optimum design. 6SigmaET uses intelligent parts to build your IT equipment, not abstract blocks. Card, chassis and drive bays allow you to place modules easily, and temperature-controlled axial and radial fans, as well as blowers, can be parametrically defined. Design the motherboard in 6SigmaET, or import it from a variety of EDA systems (such as IDF and IDX). Switch between simplified or detailed modelling levels for objects (such as PCBs, components and vias) to model the level of detail you need easily. LED Lighting Lighting up your designs. Cabinets As much detail as you want. LEDs are very temperature-sensitive, so most designs using them will need heat sinking to ensure they are operating correctly. Use 6SigmaET to model the LED s small details and the geometry of the heat sink to ensure the best possible performance before the prototypes are tested. Create a simplified model using 6SigmaET s large library of IT equipment, then share this across the 6SigmaDC suite to analyse its performance in cabinets. Or create a detailed model, then solve using 6SigmaET s fast parallel solver (available on both multicore/processor systems and Windows HPC clusters) to get rapid results even in multimillion cell models. Components Modelling components has never been easier. Create detailed component geometry in 6SigmaET, or import it from CAD models. Apply heat sources to component parts, and specify these as spatially varying (power map), time varying or even as a function of temperature. Choose different modelling levels for components depending on the model being investigated Future Facilities Ltd. Page 4 6SIgmaet.info Power Electronics Driving your designs forward. Use 6SigmaET to model semiconductors in detail so you can accurately predict junction temperatures in power electronics. Import and analyse your complex heat sink and enclosure designs to ensure they remove waste heat effectively. Use specialised objects to represent components (such as pumps, cold plates and TECs), then model and test your advanced cooling systems. Use time varying characteristics and temperature dependent properties to get accurate results Future Facilities Ltd. Page 5 6Sigmaet.info

4 Features Multi-Fluid Version Tree Export CAD Complex Geometry Import CAD models from a range of formats directly into 6SigmaET, and keep all the detail of the design. You can convert imported CAD objects into intelligent objects (such as PCBs and heat sinks) to make modelling and configuring them simple. 6SigmaET can also plot your simulation results directly onto 3D CAD models so you can easily analyse them. Intelligent Objects Choose from a large selection of intelligent components, including PCBs, components, power supplies, heat sinks and thermal interface materials, then parametrically configure these objects to match the specification of the equipment s components. The objects also know their relationship to each-other, and will be placed accordingly. 6SigmaET can model equipment that uses liquid cooling. Cold plates, pumps, cooling ducts and vents are all intelligent objects, so you can create a multi-fluid system with ease. PAC Manager (Parameterise, Analyse, Compare) Manager allows you to create multiple versions of the same model with a variation in the values of different parameters. It also collects selected simulation results together so you can compare them easily. You can export the table of input and result data for further analysis (e.g. in Microsoft Excel). 6SigmaET s Version Tree consolidates all of your design variations into a single hierarchical list, allowing you to integrate them more tightly into the product design cycle. PCB Layer Thermal Conductivity Calculator The PCB layer thermal conductivity calculator takes the design of PCB layer tracks from a Gerber import, IDX import or from an image, and uses this information to calculate the thermal conductivity for each region of the PCB. This enables an accurate simulation of the thermal performance of each region of the PCB without having to explicitly include its complex traces. Export your 6SigmaET model to use in your engineering design software. You can export models in DWG format, or export model objects as STL files. Batch Solve Batch Solve allows you to create a list of pre-prepared cases and submit them for thermal simulation. It can queue and prioritise multiple cases, then send them to one or more CFD servers to be solved. Batch Solve also allows you to solve your cases remotely on one or more CFD servers, then shut down your computer and collect the results later. Import EDA Simplified Chassis Post Processing Grid Generation 6SigmaET s revolutionary gridding technique allows you to model large equipment models in detail, and it s automatically generated you don t have to spend time setting it up. The unique unstructured staggered Cartesian grid is optimised for performance and accuracy, only adding grid where you need it. 6SigmaET can import ECAD data via IDF, IDX, XFL and Gerber file formats, so you can import PCB outlines, component positions, and layer and trace information. The imported PCB and components are intelligent objects, so you can configure them parametrically. 6SigmaET allows you to export ready-to-use models for data centre performance simulations. You can automatically create simplified models of equipment for analysis in racks or in mission-critical facilities. The simplified chassis can be fully integrated with 6SigmaRack and 6SigmaRoom. You can easily analyse your simulation results with 6SigmaET s comprehensive set of post-processing displays. Fully customisable reporting lets you communicate your results easily, especially when comparing multiple alternates. Modern User Interface 6SigmaET s modern GUI enables you to create accurate thermal models quickly and easily. Our Object Panel lets you drag and drop a huge range of objects straight into your model, while our simple ribbon system contains all the tools you need to build, solve and analyse your model. You can select an object in your model, then find its available tools, settings and child objects in the context-sensitive object ribbon. Transient Simulation As well as steady-state solutions, 6SigmaET can perform transient simulations. You can set this up quickly and easily, and set a wide range of properties to be time varying: environment, component power, current/voltage for joule heating, and many more. Joule Heating You can add electrical boundary conditions to various objects in your model, such as PCB traces and solid obstructions. You can then solve the model for electrical potential and current distributions, and the local joule heating will be calculated from these values. Parallel Solver 6SigmaET s fast and robust parallelised solver is capable of solving models in excess of 300 million grid cells. The distributed memory parallel solver can scale to over 128 cores using a highperformance computer (HPC) cluster Future Facilities Ltd. Page 6 6SIgmaet.info 2014 Future Facilities Ltd.
