What They Didn’t Teach You in Engineering School About Heat Transfer

Until recently, the commercial software available for CFD typically has been geared towards specialists, limiting its widespread use. Besides being expensive, these tools have either been difficult, cumbersome or time-consuming to use. As a result, engineering analysis for applications such as heat transfer traditionally have been carried out by specialists in analysis departments, separate from mainstream design and development departments.

Solving the System-Level Thermal Management Challenges of LEDs

As thermal management continues to be critical to LED performance, thermal simulation is playing an increasingly important role in LED system design. New generation CAD-embedded thermal and fluid simulation software makes it possible for LED systems designers to diagnose thermal problems, evaluate a large number of design alternatives quickly, and iterate rapidly to an optimal solution. Another bonus? Having a deep understanding of the computational aspects of fluid dynamics is no longer a requirement...

Windows CE Development for RISC Computers Made Easy

Windows CE (a.k.a. Windows Embedded Compact), originally released in 1996, can be an attractive alternative to the full Windows operating system offering system designers the ability to control power, size, and cost in a new product. For example, the runtime license cost of the CE operating system alone can save as much as $150 over the license cost for standard Windows.
