Thermal Simulation Simplifies LED Design

Every form of electric lighting produces an unwanted by-product: heat. But LED lighting poses new and different challenges to designers. Heat buildup can reduce an LED’s light output and cause a color shift, while at the same time shortening the component’s useful life.

In this white paper, Dr. John Parry of Mentor Graphics sets out how to use thermal simulation to validate design concepts that use LEDs.

This 6 page white paper highlights CFD techniques to analyze the transfer of the device’s heat from its own PN junction to the ambient, including tips on building a computational grid.

It also points out simple tools to speed the analysis.
