Mentor Webinar April 11: How to Model Thermal Vias


Reading time ( words)

In electronics product design, PCB thermal management that ensures adequate component cooling is important for reliability. Demands for compact designs and reduced costs drive a need for accurate and early evaluation of cooling options during design ideation phase.

Thermal vias offer opportunities to enhance heat dissipation away key components on a PCB. Register now for a new webinar on April 11, 2019, and learn how to model thermal vias quickly and accurately at different stages of PCB design.

Two live sessions are available April 11. Topics include:

  • How thermal vias can assist in heat dissipation on a PCB
  • How to model thermal vias during development; simple to explicit detailed approaches
  • Methods applied to an example model of a component mounted on a PCB with thermal vias

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

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.
