Computational fluid dynamics now addresses more of the simulation activities required for complex systems in a single methodology.
Three Mentor divisions - Embedded, PADS and Tanner EDA - will present their latest innovations during the conference and exhibition in Nuremberg next week.
A new dedicated automotive power tester helps cut simulation errors to just 0.5% with more faithful calibration.
To make a high-efficiency power supply XP Power used heat as an additional design variable with an architecture that turns conventional wisdom over one aspect of component reliability on its head.
Two of the custom designs presented at the 26th Hot Chips in Cupertino exemplified the problems caused by increasing power density and the benefits of looking at heat removal at the system level.
Mentor Graphics has release a version of its Flotherm tool that makes it possible to build accurate models of heat flow through electronic systems from initial concepts through to prototypes without the extensive manual rework that these analyses have needed traditionally.
Robert Bosch is expecting to see major growth in electronics in cars over the coming decade. But most of that growth will not be coming from electric vehicles of the four-wheeled variety, said the company's automotive division president.
