Aavid Thermalloy - Thermal Management

Aavid Thermalloy - Thermal Management



The Company was founded in 1964 as Aavid Engineering. In 1995, the Company's former parent acquired Fluent, a provider of design and simulation software used to predict fluid flow, heat and mass transfer and chemical reaction. The goal of the acquisition was to combine two complementary thermal management solution providers, with Fluent providing the software solution and Aavid providing the hardware solution.



Solutions for IGBT Modules

Solutions for IGBT Modules



"The use of liquid cooling increases heat removal and decreases temperature rise due to the increased efficiency of the medium. Smaller, acoustically quieter, higher power output systems can be achieved."
