6SigmaET is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tool for thermal analysis of electronics. It brings new levels of prediction and productivity to electronics cooling design. Thanks to its ease-of-use, it overcomes many of the problems that have plagued analysis tools from the beginning. You no longer need specific know how to get useful results. The tool offers substantial automation and intelligence so it can be used by electrical or mechanical engineers as well as by thermal experts. 6SigmaET makes available a broad range of intelligent modelling objects, which enables you for fast what-if analysis based on information from data sheets.

Intelligent Modelling Objects

Inteligent Models help you to create a thermal model of a product at the beginning of your design cycle. These simplified simulations based on models build from scratch show you problem zones of your design and helps to define a cooling strategy. Intelligent models include:

  • PCBs
  • Chip sockets / IC packages
  • Discrete components (resistors, capacitors,...)
  • Temperature controlled fans and blowers
  • Card and drive bays

6SigmaET greatly expands modelling automation. Objects come with rules that auto: place, align, collision-detect and error-check. Plus grid-generation rules automatically ensure the optimum grid is always used.


Simulation results are object-associated as well. Display of critical temperatures and airflow patterns can be initiated from the objects directly. Highly customisable automatic report-generation ensures the results of the study can be easily and effectively communicated. Automated revision-control and design-timeline tracking are included to enable designers to organise design variations and track design progress from concept to production.
