CardTemp is the latest automation of Electronic Packaging on a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows platform. It is listed on the System Reliability Center web site under R&M Software Tools, Reliability, Design/Analysis, Thermal Analysis, and is the second of three programs. It predicts the steady-state temperatures (maximum, median, minimum) of a printed wiring board (PWB), of a circuit card assembly (CCA), in ten [1-10] thermal solutions. The Electrical Engineer can now conduct Trade Studies during the proposal phase of a procurement bid. Knowing the PWB joule-heating, size, and form-factor limitations on the Thermal Design allows the allocation of circuits to that real-estate with confidence. This allows one PWB to be designed for the first customer and yet also meet the requirements of another similar customer. This saves time and money. Electrical Engineers, in the IEEE CPMT, use it as a quick solution to initiate the design concept of a family of products. Each customer will have his unique requirements met while the vendor benefits from common PWB art-work.
