The State of Thermal Report 2017

1 December, 2017


Last year, 6SigmaET launched The Heat is On, an in-depth study into the priorities and attitudes of electronics engineers around the world. This research found that despite engineers’ focus on product reliability, many were still failing to adequately manage the thermal performance of their designs. 

This report provides an insight into these thermal professionals, examining their attitudes towards thermal simulation, how easy it is for them to run simulations successfully and whether they have the right tools to support them. Through these questions, our State of Thermal report provides invaluable insight into the changing face of thermal analysis in 2017.
