    st file (also known as a thermal spice file) can be can be created to a user requested level of relative error, ε. The thermal netlist is extracted using the

    FANTASTIC method1.


Power Control

Control Attribute; Contains thermal definitions of operating frequencies

  • Frequency
  • Power vs Temperature data
  • Minimum Temperature
  • Maximum Temperature
  • Frequency - Power vs Temerature; Power vs Temerature data is entered for individual frequencies.
  • Control Summary; The 'Control Summary' command is used to visualize all defined power vs temerature curves on the same chart.
  • Controller Object; A controller object contains:
    • One Heat Source (Controlled Power)
    • One Monitor Point (Temerature Sensor)
  • Controller Behavior; Transient Models: the operation frequency of the controller will automatically change during the trancient solution. Steady State Models: the frequency does not change.
  • Results Output; Monitor Points within Controller objects have power, frequency, and temperature history available in the Tables window.



  • Export to previous version; Export models and assemblies as Simcentor Flotherm v12.2 PDML
  • Z-Rotation support for CSV layout; Z-rotation for components is now supported for Import and Export of CS layout files in FloEDA Bridge
