    Thermal analysis of PCBA

    Simon Bezian

      Hi Guys,

      Anyone knows how to assign material properites to chips on a PCBA?

      I have MCU, Voltage converter, sensor, etc, should we consider only base material of the chip or the whole chip?

          you can apply as many materials as you have components

          so if you break your part down into bodies or into an assembly of parts you can apply materials to each

          but the question you have to ask is whether that gives you anything beyond assuming the part is comprised of the material it is made up of the most. that should be plenty for a first pass analysis.
