Heat Sinks

Transient temperature contours in a heat sink

Parameters such as spreading resistance or fin efficiency need to be known to the designer. The thermal analysis allows engineers to reduce the thermal resistance of the device in order to have less heatsink requirements. The efficiency, size and life spam of the device has to be increased, as well as the cost of production has to go down.
