ATS Helps Engineers Reduce Product Design Time-To-Revenue with Heat Sink Selection Tool
Norwood, MA, October 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- As noted in a recent article in Electronic Design, “the number one thing engineers care about these days is time-to-market, or more aptly put, time-to-revenue. After all, companies are in business not to develop technology, but to make and sell products based on that technology.” The team at ATS has come up with way to help engineers do just that by reducing the time it takes to choose the right heat sink for a given semiconductor.
ATS is able to shrink the time it takes to choose the right heat sink through its tested Heat Sink Design Tool. The tool, celebrating one year of service, gives mechanical engineers a simple but effective means to start their thermal design in the same place their electrical engineering counterparts do; at the semiconductor.
Mechanical engineers who use the tool only need to enter either the semiconductor manufacturing name or part number. Upon doing so, the tool serves up likely heat sinks that can be used as the starting point for an electronics cooling design. By giving the engineer heat sink options for a given semiconductor, her time to select and then test a heat sink is reduced significantly. The tool automatically shows the heat sink options, technical reference and RoHS links. A link to where to buy the part is also provided, either direct or through ATS authorized distributors such as Arrow Electronics or Digi-Key.
“We know from listening to mechanical engineers working in thermal management that they need to reduce design time”, said Dr. Kaveh Azar, CEO of Advanced Thermal Solutions, “our Heat Sink Selection Tool does just that, making it possible for engineers to choose a heat sink faster so they can get their jobs done more efficiently.”
ATS’s heat sinks selection tool is available today at no cost to engineers. It can be accessed by going to the ATS web site and choosing “Heat Sink Selection Tool” from the main, top menu; click to www.qats.com to use it.
