Mechanical Solutions Releases Heat Sink Designer
20th March, 2006

Mechanical Solutions, a consulting firm specializing in electronics cooling, has released Heat Sink Designer, a software tool that focuses, as the name implies, exclusively on heat sinks. The tool is designed to be used by electrical and mechanical engineers – thermal expertise and training is not required. It has also found favor among thermal engineers as a complement to CFD analysis.
"Engineers often find the heat sink they select does not perform as published” said Kevin O'Connor, President of Mechanical Solutions "This is not the fault of the manufacturer. Every application is unique.” For example, Heat Sink Designer lets users define their own flow area and heat source to eliminate the two most common sources of error: air bypass and heat spreading.

Mechanical Solutions has partnered with leading manufacturers to create libraries of hundreds of heat sinks. Users can create their own heatsink or they can opt to let the program recommend one by simply entering the available space. Alternatively, the software can determine the optimal heat sink for that space, enabling users to compare custom vs. off-the-shelf solutions.

At this writing, sink libraries are available for Aavid, Alpha-Novatech, CTS – IERC, Getec, Thermaflo and Wakefield Engineering. R-Theta, Alutronic, and Radian heatsink libraries are expected this spring.

Hart Cardozo, Vice President of Getec North America states "Getec's executive management team searched for the ideal tool to help our customers become successful. We identified Heat Sink Designer as having the most effective solution.”

Another top supplier is also using it to develop new heat sinks. “It’s very simple to use, yet powerful” says Glenn Summerfield, Director of Product Development at Alpha-Novatech. Visit Alpha’s website to download their most recent Heat Sink Designer library.

Thermal consultants and specialists are also weighing in on the product. Dr. Catherina Biber, a well-known author of numerous heat sink articles, says “Heat Sink Designer does so much more than most any spreadsheet would – including a sketch you can print, really fast exploration of the design space, and catalog search for suitable part numbers. It even includes fan parameters, air density changes with altitude and thermal interface materials in the calculations – they've thought of everything. It's a real time saver, and very easy and intuitive to use."
