Electric vehicles and
System perspective on EV design
Whether through front loading thermal and system simulation or non-destructive power semiconductor testing and lifetime analysis, we empower engineers to design and optimize from a complete system perspective for EV/HEVs. We deliver practical benefits such as maximizing drive range on electric powertrain, optimizing battery life and consolidating wire harness to reduce weight.
Thermal analysis before physical prototyping
Solve automotive electronics cooling challenges from smallest die to the largest enclosure. Mentor Automotive tools can perform thermal analysis, create virtual models, and test design modifications of electronic equipment and electric motors before physical prototyping. We can help you optimize your electric and hybrid drive systems, electronics modules and IGBTs.
Mentor's FloTHERM CFD Solution
Simulation software, thermal characterization hardware
Develop more reliable power electronics with the aid of FloTHERM® and FloEFD® simulation software and T3Ster® thermal characterization hardware. Test reliability and lifetime of your power electronics components including IGBTs, MOSFETs, and other two-pole semiconductor devices with Power Tester™.
Mentor’s 1D CFD tools
Learn how Mentor’s 1D CFD tools, such as FloMASTER, design cooling systems to meet heat dissipation requirements of power electronics without losing focus on system-level performance.
Battery & vehicle thermal management
Use frontloading simulation tools to analyze battery and vehicle thermal management in the early design phases. We offer a comprehensive 1D and 3D CFD (FloMASTER® & FloEFD) software suite to simulate battery thermal management, electric motor cooling, cabin comfort as well as complete vehicle thermal management network
Manage hardware, software and network complexity
Automation and verification of hardware, software, and mechatronic systems must go beyond mere electronic control unit (ECU) design automation and focus on interactions between hardware, software, and the network connecting the platform components and systems. That’s where we come in. Our SystemVision design exploration environment can help you contend with the rapid growth of electronic content in automotive systems, manage complexity, employ more automation in design processes, and achieve faster, more reliable system and component design.
