What is Aavid Genie?
Aavid Genie is a free thermal design software application available online. The Genie guides engineers through the thermal solution design process with helpful tips and real-time thermal performance estimates. With the Aavid Genie, it is easy to design and simulate your air cooled heat sink in under 15 minutes.
Once you input your requirements and design parameters, Aavid Genie calculates the most optimum heat sink designs to fit your needs. These design options can be ranked by size, mass, thermal performance, and pressure drop to help you choose the right fabrication and flow rate for your application. The heat sink design tool then walks you through additional customization options such as adding more fins, heat pipes, and flow rates. Lastly, you place your heat sources on the base of your heat sink. Aavid Genie allows for multiple heat sources of varying size and shapes as well as adding uniform heat loads.
After you run your thermal simulation, the Genie offers several next steps for making your heat sink a reality:
