Future Lighting offers thermal simulation software for high-power LEDs

March 3, 2008
Date Announced: 03 Mar 2008 -- Simulation software accelerates development and decreases costs Montreal, Canada -- Future Lighting Solutions and Qfinsoft announce the release of QLed, the first thermal design software developed for the solid state lighting industry. QLed minimizes the number of design cycles, reduces development costs and decreases time to market by eliminating the traditional trial-and-error approach to thermal design. The software guides users through step-by-step design wizards to select, place and simulate power LEDs mounted on FR-4 boards or MCPCBs. Additionally, users can seamlessly integrate thermal vias, heat sinks, and fans to generate the most accurate transient or steady state thermal simulations. An evaluation version of QLed can be downloaded for free at www.futurelightingsolutions.com/qled.“In addition to generating extremely precise thermal simulation results, QLed also calculates the expected luminous flux produced by the LED,” commented Jan Visser, President of Qfinsoft Technology Inc. “QLed can also be used to simulate slow and fast transients as well as automatically improve designs by using a highly efficient mathematical optimization algorithm.”“Customers using QLED can literally develop, simulate and optimize thermal designs in minutes instead of working with a thermal design engineer and costly software alternatives” added Patrick Durand, Worldwide Applications Manager for Future Lighting Solutions. “QLed will revolutionize how the solid state lighting industry develops new products.”For a free evaluation or to purchase QLed, visit http://www.futurelightingsolutions.com/qled.
