Cracks in the System – Thermomechanical Fatigue of Electronics Components, Part 2

As discussed in Part 1, engineers are tasked with designing electrical components that can withstand the increased thermal and mechanical loads required of today’s ever-more-powerful electronics. Sometimes these are entirely new designs built from the ground up, and subjected to holistic testing and prototyping during the R&D phase. But often, manufacturers seek to merely tweak …

Saving Time and Money for Rockwell Automation

Problem: As Rockwell Automation looked to improve product functionality, engineers relied on developing physical prototypes to test heat sink designs for its powerful microprocessor chips. This approach left mechanical engineers scrambling at the end of the design cycle to find an electronics cooling solution that would fit the prototypes and not delay new product releases. …
