Requirements
  • MS Degree in Mechanical Engineering - Ph.D. preferred.
  • Experience with high power (>800W) SOC liquid cool thermal model and analysis.
  • Experience in cold plate liquid cooling design and analysis, open loop or closed loop liquid cooling, CDU at rack level or facility level design and analysis.
  • Minimum of 3-5 years of direct professional experience in thermal design and analysis of electronic appliances using Icepak, FloTHERM, SmartCFD, etc.
  • Experience in numerical modeling based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) (convergence, discretization, meshing).
  • Knowledge and familiarity with electronic cooling and challenges of systems within data center environments.
  • Knowledge of heat transfer modes; conduction, convection (passive and active), and radiation.
  • Thorough understanding of heat sink type/design, heat pipes, vapor chambers, fans, blowers, pumps, thermal interface material.
  • Experience in vendor selection.
  • Flow and thermal measurement techniques, mechanical (thermal and structural) validation and qualification tests including, Environmental Test (ETE), etc.
  • Knowledge with thermal airflow testing: fans, pumps, liquid loop cold plate testing, and augmentation to system thermal simulation models.
