6SigmaET is an electronics thermal modeling tool that uses advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to create accurate models of electronic equipment. Designed specifically for the electronics industry, our thermal simulation software ushers in unparalleled intelligence, automation and accuracy to help you meet your requirements and overcome thermal design challenges.
Since its inception in 2009, 6SigmaET has become the fastest growing thermal simulation software in the electronics cooling market.
Built-in intelligent components know how they should behave, and are placed according to how they fit together with other objects.
Automated report generation and industry-defined file formats allow you to easily exchange data and results with your engineering team.
6SigmaET automatically checks for modeling errors and generates grid, so you can get the right results the first time you solve.
Engineers can’t wait days for a thermal simulation to solve. Our powerful solver can quickly handle even the most complex models.
The versatility of 6SigmaET allows you to simulate the thermal performance of electronic components: ranging from the smallest ICs to the largest, most powerful servers. Learn more about 6SigmaET's value to your industry by watching one of our videos or exploring our case studies.
Electronics products developed for military and aerospace face unique challenges: they need to be rugged, while still working correctly at high altitudes. 6SigmaET can model high levels of complexity—including liquid cooling—providing you with the ultimate toolset from a thermal simulation standpoint.

“Using the quick and accurate thermal simulation features in 6SigmaET, we were able to cut our modeling time by 30%. The platform’s high-performance, cloud based solving allowed us to scale without hardware limitations, giving us the opportunity to double the number of projects we can take on.”
CTO & Director of Engineering, TEN TECH LLC
“Thanks to 6SigmaET we were able to create simulated models of our soldering processes and now predict the behaviour of PCBs inside our manufacturing processes. The software proved to be the best market choice due to its ability to import all BOSCH PCB and product files, by its simulation speed and for its flexibility to adapt to different simulation environments.”
Process Engineer, BOSCH
“A comprehensive standalone tool, 6SigmaET doesn’t need additional MCAD software for data entry, which means it is especially straightforward to use. The software is fast, fits our thermal modeling needs perfectly, and experimental testing in our laboratories has proven that the simulation results predict component temperatures with accuracy.”
“Whether building up a model from scratch or utilizing the simplicity of the software’s import capabilities for CAD and IDF data...modeling times are significantly reduced. This has helped in quickly turning around solutions during the design cycle to verify the equipment’s ability to withstand the harshest environmental conditions we know it will most probably encounter.”
Mechanical Engineer, SELEX ES
“6SigmaET’s ability to import complex CAD files, coupled with its robust meshing and solving capabilities, significantly reduces our modeling time. We especially like the itemized results for heat distribution and the predefined thermal thresholds, which provide an easy snapshot of the simulation conditions.”
