Tech Tip: How to export MCAD data from CR-8000 Design Force to enable faster thermal simulation in ANSYS Icepak
This video demonstrates how you can export a STEP file from CR-8000 Design Force including automatically editing your package shape and deformation spec to reduce heat transfer and fluid flow simulation time in ANSYS Icepak. Changing the micro-bumps in the detailed model using an octagonal shape and simplifying the grid pattern (size) will reduce the meshing and calculation time without sacrificing accuracy, leading to faster thermal simulation.
CR-8000 Design Force is the fastest, most effective PCB layout solution available today. Design Force enables design teams to layout and verify their designs in the context of a complete system or product.
