SEMI-THERM 2019, March 18-22, San Jose USA

11 March, 2019


SEMI-THERM is a conference and exhibition for people interested in thermal design, management and characterization of electronic systems and components. Attendees can expect a forum for engineers, academics and executives to learn, exchange ideas and display the latest in thermal management techniques, products and services.

We are excited to announce 6SigmaET's 10th anniversary! We would like to invite you to join us for a reception from 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM on Wednesday, March 20th in the Bayshore Ballroom for happy hour and cake. 

If you can't make it to the reception, please stop by at Booth #500 to learn more about how 6SigmaET has evolved over the years in the thermal management and design industry.

Vendor Workshop

Wednesday, March 20, 2019
4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Presentation: 6SigmaET Ten Years Old and Still Developing Rapidly
Presenter: Chris Aldham, Product Manager, Future Facilities Ltd.
Synopsis: 6SigmaET was introduced to the electronics thermal industry at Semi-Therm 25 in 2009. In 2019, we are celebrating the first 10 years of our state-of-the-art electronics cooling software.

We’ll take a short trip down memory lane to explore 6SigmaET’s important philosophy of putting the user experience first, with real modeling objects rather than simplified, integrations with a wide range of ECAD/MCAD tools, and many more key usability features. We’ll also explore the development of 6SigmaET’s unique Multi-Level Unstructured Staggered Grid system, which allows complex models to be solved with minimal effort.

The presentation will showcase the current release of 6SigmaET and will offer a sneak preview of some of our upcoming features.
