Online thermal management tool optimizes cooling

May 17, 2018 // By Julien Happich
The Thermal Wizard launched on Laird's website is a web-based tool that simulates cooling applications to help select thermoelectric modules, thermoelectric assemblies, or liquid cooling systems.

Thermal Wizard employs proprietary application calculators to determine the optimal thermal management solutions at the thermoelectric module, thermoelectric assembly or liquid cooling system level. Building upon Laird's AZTEC thermoelectric module (TEM) simulation software, the Thermal Wizard enables thermal designers to input their known cooling requirement (Qc). If the cooling requirement is unknown, the Thermal Wizard can calculate the Qc based on the defined application: device cooling, enclosure cooling, air cooling, or liquid cooling.
The Wizard enables easy comparison for integration into customer applications and also provides quick access to product availability, request-for-quotation form, and how to order samples. Once a standard product series is selected, the thermal designer has access to multiple input fields for fine tuning electrical and thermal performance curves to produce the optimum solution. If a standard solution doesn't exactly match an application requirement, the Thermal Wizard captures the user's requirements to enable the customization of a standard product or to request a custom solution from Laird's thermal experts.
