Design Services

WaveTherm offers unique thermal analysis expertise related specifically to embedded electronics. Thermal expertise alone won't guide a module designer through the challenges to their application as the work required to be performed also entails a necessity of knowledge related to the standards the module needs to comply with to meet the application requirements. WaveTherm’s experience enables customers to gain invaluable insight into the inner working of the standards as they design their modules and systems and allows WaveTherm to add value to a project beyond a straightforward thermal analysis or simulation services.

Thermal Analysis

Heat dissipation in embedded systems, especially in VPX based installations, is a key focal point in any chassis design. Thermal management is a top priority at WaveTherm and SolidWorks Flow CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is used to evaluate and optimize the thermal capabilities and limits of every chassis we design. We analyze the behavior of the design under adverse temperatures and thermal load conditions, checking for hot spots and seeking areas of improvement. WaveTherm is a recognized leader in conduction cooled, air cooled and hybrid air and liquid over conduction-cooled mechanical packaging solutions.

Structural Analysis

High shock and vibration are the norm in rugged defense applications and the structural integrity of any packaging solution is crucial to protecting mission critical electronics. Our experts use SOLIDWORKS Simulation to zero in on the stresses and strains of packaging under internal and external loads. SOLIDWORKS helps to reduce costs and the need for rework during the development phase. Optimization is achieved through analyzing the behavior of the design under adverse static and dynamic load conditions.

3D CAD Modeling

SOLIDWORKS is employed throughout the chassis mechanical and electrical design process starting with initial planning, detailed visual conceptualization, feasibility review, modeling and creating prototypes. 2D parametric based drawing creation using DXF, DWG, STEP, IGES, STL and other file formats.

3D Printing

3D printing has come increasingly into use in the manufacturing sector. At WaveTherm, we’ve been employing and honing our skills in 3D printing for years. Using in-house equipment, we create engineering models, prototypes, production components, connectors, tooling and fixtures to support our designs beginning from the early development stages. Liquid cooled chassis often require intricate fluid paths that benefit from the precision of 3D printing. Our engineers are experienced in the use of leading-edge printers and various high strength materials onyx, fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon fiber.
