Future Facilities is celebrating the 10th anniversary of 6SigmaET, its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution for the electronics market.

First launched at the thermal engineering conference, Semi-Therm, in 2009, 6SigmaET has evolved over the last 10 years and now incorporates advanced unstructured gridding technology, cloud-based solving and VR integration for the Oculus Rift.

To mark the landmark anniversary, Future Facilities has announced the launch of a new interactive history of 6SigmaET — providing an animated timeline of the products, projects and innovations that have been shaped by the simulation software over the last decade. This timeline also incorporates milestones for the team, including the creation of an industry-wide “neutral file format” for thermal simulation and 6SigmaET being recognised as both “Product of the Year” and “Design Tool of the Year.”

In addition to the timeline, employees and founding members of the 6SigmaET team met at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms recently to mark the brand’s 10th year as a simulation provider. This event included the cutting of a celebratory thermal simulation cake along with an update on the company’s future plans and developments in the electronics space.

“Our products have been shaped by both industry-leading research and the real-life experiences of our highly dedicated engineering team,” says Akhil Docca, corporate marketing & product strategy manager at Future Facilities. “As we look ahead to the next ten years, we look forward to continuing this commitment to thermal design innovation for our partners and our customers across the industry.”
