Beat the Heat With New Book on Thermal Management Design Processes


Reading time ( words)

Learn how to beat the heat in your designs with The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective—the latest title in our educational library. The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… series is specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers and serves as a valuable resource for people seeking the most relevant design information available.

Thermal management is one of the fastest-growing areas of the PCB segment, far outpacing the projected growth for the overall industry. While demand was originally driven by high-power telecommunication and mil-aero applications, it has rapidly expanded to include automotive, consumer electronics, and medical sectors.

Written by Anaya Vardya, president and CEO of American Standard Circuits, this book serves as a desk reference for designers on the most current thermal management techniques and methods from a PCB fabrication perspective, including a case study on an extreme mixed-technology design. Vardya also shares considerations designers should discuss with their PCB fabricators to ensure manufacturability, cost-effective solutions, and successful product launches.

Denis Boulanger, principal manufacturing engineer at Raytheon Technologies, says, "This book provides a comprehensive look at thermal management and PCB design issues from the fabricator’s perspective. I am glad that it exists now that I have 'gone over to the dark side,' where I am a consumer rather than a fabricator and/or material supplier."

PCB designers and design engineers, both new and veteran, will gain a thorough understanding of thermal management design processes.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.
