Thermoelectric module simulation tool shortens design cycles

February 17, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Laird has updated and enhanced its AZTEC thermoelectric module (TEM) simulation program algorithms to further reduce thermal design time.

The AZTEC product selection tool allows design engineers to specify a given set of input variables based on application attributes and the software analysis outputs optimal TEMs for examination.

The advanced program enables design engineers to quickly choose the ideal TEM based on a cross comparison of TEM datasheets. Further reducing a customer's time-to-market, the AZTEC software contains an analysis worksheet that simulates how TEM devices will function under a specific set of operating conditions.

The product selection tool uses input variables including heat load, ambient and control temperatures, input voltage requirement and thermal resistance of hot side heat exchangers to recommend TEMs needed to reach an application's operating condition. The software has been updated with the latest TEM product offerings from Laird.
