2017 FloTHERM Award Winners

Mentor has announced its winners for the inaugural annual FloTHERM ΔTJ Award for Excellence in Electronics Thermal Design. For over 30 years, the FloTHERM solution has been the de facto computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution for electronics cooling. The FloTHERM product provides tight connectivity with electronic design automation (EDA) and mechanical design automation (MDA) development process flows, and is used to predict airflow, temperature, and heat transfer in components, boards and complete systems.

FloTHERM ΔTJ Award winners were required to demonstrate an application using the FloTHERM technology (including FloTHERM XT, FloTHERM PCB or FloTHERM IC) to successfully address a design problem. This included a return on investment (ROI) improvement due to quantifiable use of CFD technology.

First Place Winners of the 2017 Mentor FloTHERM ΔTJ Award: Gong Yue Tang, Yong Han, Boon Long Lau, Xiaowu Zhang, and Daniel Min Woo Rhee,

First Place Winners of the 2017 Mentor FloTHERM ΔTJ Award: Gong Yue Tang, Yong Han, Boon Long Lau, Xiaowu Zhang, and Daniel Min Woo Rhee,

The first place award winner is the team from the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Agency of Science, Technology and Research in Singapore. The team comprising Gong Yue Tang, Yong Han, Boon Long Lau, Xiaowu Zhang, and Daniel Min Woo Rhee, received a trophy for their paper, Development of a Compact and Efficient Liquid Cooling System with Silicon Micro-cooler for High-Power Microelectronic Devices. The team also received a $1,000 Amazon gift card, which they have donated to the Singapore Children’s Society.

“Microchannel based liquid cooling and thermal management technology has been used to develop the compact and efficient cooling system for high power electronics systems,” stated Gong Yue Tang. “Through the thermal modelling and simulations, FloTHERM has been demonstrated as a fast and cost-effective thermal design tool to evaluate and optimize the thermal performance of the liquid cooling system proposed in this study.”

Two runners-up were also selected. Hugo Ljunggren Falk, KTH School of Industrial Engineering and Management in Sweden received a $500 Amazon.de gift card for his paper, Thermal Management in an IR-Camera. And Gabriel Ciobanu from Continental Corporation in Romania also received the same for his paper, co-written with Boris Marovic from Mentor, entitled The Fundamentals of Improving PCB Thermal Design.

DFT Plugin Added to Zuken Design Suite

Zuken  and XJTAG have entered into a partnership to enhance Zuken’s CR-8000 with a design for test (DFT) capability that will improve test coverage during schematic entry. The capability is based on XJTAG’s DFT Assistant, and will be available later this year as a free plugin for Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Gateway users. CR-8000 is a native 3D product-XJTAG-DFT-Assistant-768x435centric design platform for PCB-based systems. CR-8000 directly supports architecture design, concurrent multi-board PCB design, chip/package/board co-design and full 3D MCAD co-design. CR-8000 Design Gateway is Zuken’s platform for logical circuit design and verification.

Increasingly, PCBs are densely populated making it difficult to gain manufacturing test access to pins under many packages, such as ball grid arrays (BGAs). JTAG was designed to enable test access, so an optimized JTAG design can have a positive impact on ROI. Failure to optimize JTAG test coverage at an early design stage can increase manufacturing costs and possibly require a board re-design. XJTAG DFT Assistant will help to validate correct JTAG chain connectivity while displaying boundary scan access and coverage onto the schematic diagram through full integration with CR-8000 Design Gateway.
