Open File Format Simplifies Thermal Simulation

ANSYS has developed an open, neutral file format that will allow electronic component manufacturers and their customers share design models between different thermal simulation toolsets. The open model format will promote interoperability and ease the exchange of data throughout the supply chain. The use of a standard file format enables component suppliers to create a single compact model file to describe its thermal characteristics that work with any simulation software tool that adheres to the standard and will save time and reduce errors.

 

ANSYS collaborated with several industry leading companies, led by Intel, to develop thermal model exchange standards that would facilitate easy data exchange and consolidate the many different file formats currently being used. The companies validated that the file exchange format met the necessary criteria and have endorsed the ANSYS open neutral file format standard. For more details and access, visit ANSYS, Inc.
