For Immediate Release
Grid structure, combined with solver enhancement,
creates unparalleled speed and flexibility for virtual prototyping of
Hanover, NH......June 21, 2001....Coolit, the world's
easiest-to-use thermal analysis software for electronics, announces the
availability of hybrid meshing, a first for CFD (computational fluid
dynamics) software. Hybrid meshing delivers the geometric flexibility
of unstructured grids, without their negatives of slow convergence and
poor stability. It handles non-rectangular objects automatically and
with ease, permitting users to build realistic and accurate models of
Coolit v.4.0 delivers up to 30% faster solver performance
due to improvements in the solution algorithms, and it incorporates
new features that enhance ease-of-use and analysis flexibility. In addition
to import from major CAD software, import of board geometry and components
from IDF files has been added. The user now can import specific components
into Coolit without transferring entire assemblies. This eliminates
unnecessary editing when modifying designs. Coolit v4.0 allows the user
to define subsystems that can be modeled with finer detail and grid, after
the main system has been computed. This powerful feature permits complete
and accurate modeling of complex systems: from macro to micro level. In
addition, visualization enhancements provide better animation of streamlines
and enable the user to create and manipulate individual as well as groups of
streamlines and ribbons.
Coolit v4.0 operates on all Windows-based platforms:
Windows 95, 98, 2000 and NT. Coolit licenses include
free CoolPlot visualization software and unlimited technical support.
Coolit v4.0 is available for delivery now.
