Agilent acquires electrothermal analysis tech from Gradient
Agilent Technologies has acquired of electrothermal analysis technology from Gradient Design Automation, the maker of HeatWave electrothermal analysis software.
The electrical power and the thermal heat generated in a chip is lot related. The performance of the chip is impacted due to electric thermal behaviour of the material inside the chip.
Gradient offers software to analyse electro-thermal behaviour. The product called HeatWave from Gradient is IC thermal simulator for chips, and stacked-die SiP. HeatWave generates three-dimensional temperature profile of the semiconductor chip.
