Thermal design and electronics cooling is one of TDMG’s major area of specialization,
covering every type of electronic equipment imaginable from table top units to outdoor
equipment. TDMG has been performing thermal design and heat transfer analysis in
this market segment since its beginnings in 1999 and has acquired a significant amount
of experience as well as prototype and manufacturing capabilities. Please see the
Cooling Products page for more details.
TDMG’s thermal design capabilities are significant from CFD analysis (flow and thermal
analysis), to consulting on thermal issues, to physical testing in our flow and thermal
The objective or our services are to provide pertinent thermal design data that will
lead to the following benefits for our customers:
Design functional and reliable electronic equipment that will function as intended
in their environmental conditions.
Save our customers money by understanding the thermal design issues early and correcting
them before they are too serious to fix in a cost-effective manner.
Use prototyping as a means to validate designs rather than as a means to do design
iterations and save a significant amount of hardware and test related costs.
Ensure that marketing requirements are satisfied before product specifications are
committed to potential clients.
We achieve these objectives by performing a variety of thermal and heat transfer
analyses depending on the needs of our client. These vary from concept level evaluations,
component placement, detailed component modeling, heatsink optimization, system level
analyses, and physical testing. The type of heat transfer analysis used will depend
on the design requirements and will typically vary from customer to customer.
In support of its extensive electronics cooling design capabilities, TDMG inaugurated
its flow and thermal test lab in 2006. The lab, an 800 square foot facility, is to
be used for flow testing and thermal characterization of electronic cooling and other
general applications. TDMG’s windtunnel facility can generate flows up to 250 CFM.
The lab contains state of the art pressure, temperature, and flow measurement devices
and data logging equipment.
