24 SMT Magazine • March 2015 The thermal design from a mechanical perspective as well as an electrical perspective can be done in parallel. The two approaches complement one another and can lead to the thermal design closing faster, far more reliably, and with a better outcome than if thermal de- sign is undertaken in only one flow.
