FloTHERM PCB

FloTHERM PCB

Collaboration tool for everyone concerned with conceptual PCB thermal design

Overview

FloTHERM PCB is a unique, radical software program for streamlining concept development of printed-circuit boards (PCBs), while ensuring good thermal design and accelerating the PCB design process.

 

FloTHERM PCB facilitates collaboration between product marketing, electronic engineers and mechanical engineers on PCB design, particularly during the conceptual phase of the design process.

The Fastest PCB Thermal Design for Mechanical Engineers

About half of FloTHERM PCB customers surveyed were able to qualify the thermal impact of changes to their PCB designs in real time, with over three-quarters qualifying the design daily, according to Aberdeen Research. This unique capability provides thermal feedback to designers in sync with design iterations.

Reduce PCB Re-spins to Zero!

The majority of FloTHERM PCB customers surveyed performed just one PCB re-spin, compared to an average of three PCB re-spins for users of other tools.

Cut Thermal Verification Time by 66%

Engineers using other thermal analysis tools are likely to spend nearly triple the time in thermal verification than those using FloTHERM PCB.
