From aerospace to smart watches.

So you’ve designed the most incredible electronics system, in the smallest of enclosures. But will it overheat? Will it be reliable?

This webinar will cover the design process from mechanical to electronic and on through simulation.

We’ll describe the benefits of working within a tightly integrated MCAD ECAD environment. Then we’ll explain the basics of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and take some time to cover the specific benefits of having simulation embedded within your CAD environment, such as geometry change detection and seeing simulation results displayed directly on CAD geometry.

In this webinar we’ll explore the immense benefits of utilizing CFD and other simulation technologies within the mechanical design environment, specifically in the realm of designing electronics systems.

We’ll cover the notable trends where CFD is increasingly important in electronics systems design, putting in context the value of a CAD-embedded CFD solution, for example:

  • Miniaturization and higher component densities: With the trend toward smaller and more compact electronic devices, there is an increased need to manage heat dissipation in tight spaces. CFD analysis can help optimize thermal management solutions to ensure efficient cooling and prevent overheating in densely packed electronic systems.
  • Electric vehicles (EVs) and battery systems: The growing popularity of EVs and the increasing demand for high-capacity battery systems require effective thermal management. CFD tools can aid in optimizing cooling strategies for batteries, power electronics, and electric motor systems, enhancing their performance, safety, and lifespan.
  • Sustainable design: To meet the growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly electronics design, CFD can assist in evaluating the environmental impact of electronics systems, optimizing energy efficiency, and reducing material waste, helping designers create more sustainable products.

This webinar is a must-attend event for engineers, designers, and professionals seeking to enhance the performance, reliability, and efficiency of their electronic designs.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the benefits of using MCAD, ECAD and simulation tools which are optimized for each other
  • Leverage digital prototyping to reduce both development cost and design re-spins
  • Engineer the product right the first time by accurately simulating the multiphysics phenomena of real world devices before building them


Greg Arnot, Product Marketing Manager, Siemens Digital Industries Software

Arnot’s career in electronics began in the 1990’s with Hewlett-Packard in Barcelona, Spain. From 1995 he held various product management and global business development roles in the Inkjet Commercial Division before leaving in 2004 to found a wireless start-up developing social proximity applications for Facebook. From there he went on to run the U.S. operations of GreenPowerMonitor, a leading solar monitoring company. In February 2020 Arnot joined the product management team at UltraSoC, which was acquired by Siemens DISW in October 2020, and joined the Siemens NX team in June 2022.

Dr. John Parry, CEng, Industry Director, Simcenter Products, Siemens Digital Industries Software

Parry’s career in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) started at CHAM Ltd in the mid-1980s. He joined Flomerics Ltd. when it opened its doors in 1989, which was acquired by Mentor Graphics and Siemens DISW. His technical contributions span developing thermal modelling methodologies for fans, heat sinks, chip packages and LEDs, with expertise in design of experiments, optimization, thermal characterization, and active power cycling.
