We specialise in the Physical Design of Electronics/ Power Electronics Products for Harsh Environments.

Physical Design:
All aspects of an Electronics Packaging/Mechanical Design programme, from writing the requirements specification, developing a design concept, manufacture of prototypes through to delivery of a fully certified product design can be undertaken.

Analysis: Analytical Capability encompasses both Stress and Thermal Management.

Thermal management is undertaken using a mix of applications, from simple spreadsheets to assess the outline requirements, Spice models for system level analysis through to detailed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models. It is not a case of simply analysing the design but assessing the requirements and providing guidance on what the Thermal archittecture of the product needs to be to meet those requirements.

Stress Analysis is undertaken using Classical analysis through to Finite Element Analysis (FEA) techniques, depending upon the complexity of the problem.

Physical design work is undertaken using Solidworks.
The primary CFD tool is Phoenics, although Flotherrm and ICEPAK have been used in the past
