  • Effective conductivity of graphite

    Posted on May 15, 2015 by FTD Admin in Calculators.

    [CP_CALCULATED_FIELDS id=”1″] Graphite requires special attention in thermal modeling as the thin layers of adhesive and coating reduce the spreading performance. Modeling only the graphite layer would produce enhanced results. However, modeling the individual layers will increase mesh-density as the typical thickness for the adhesive and coating can vary from 5 to 25μm. Alternatively, one […]

  • Power budget calculator

    Posted on May 11, 2015 by FTD Admin in Calculators.

    [CP_CALCULATED_FIELDS id=”6″]   The power budget calculator estimates the maximum (or idealized) heat dissipation on a passive device. The calculation is based on the assumption that all surfaces dissipate heat at a uniform temperature. The heat dissipation in a real device can be considerably lower. The idealized value can be adjusted by a factor (0 […]
