PinJack offers a full suite of simulation capabilities enabling the verification and optimization of designs for our customers.  This suite of tools spans from computation fluid dynamics, thermal conduction and convection as well as linear and non-linear FEA.  

Thermal Performance Optimization

Densifying data, heating up demands: fiber optic transceiver thermal challenges

As data rates explode, so does the heat generated by products fiber optic transceivers. These form factors operate at 10x their original power density, pushing their thermal limits. This, coupled with lasers’ sensitivity to temperature, creates significant design hurdles for high-performance optics.

PinJack steps in with expertise and innovation

We’re seasoned experts in simulating cutting-edge fiber optic transceivers, such as coherent products at 400G and beyond. Our vast experience fuels unique techniques that optimize thermal performance within your desired pressure drop constraints.

Deflection of EMI Finger

EMI fingers form a vital bridge between devices, blocking electromagnetic radiation from leaking through gaps. Our advanced simulations ensure:

  • Durable Performance: Material integrity is verified, guaranteeing no permanent deformation under pressure.
  • Reliable Gap Closure: Precise simulations confirm the finger effectively bridges the gap under various operating conditions, maximizing shielding effectiveness.
  • Optimal Contact Pressure: We ensure the required deformation force is within acceptable limits, ensuring a balance between shielding efficacy and ease of assembly.

Optimization of pull tab attachment Strength

Optimizing Multi-Material Attachments with PinJack Simulations:

At PinJack, we excel in joining soft thermoplastic elastomers with thin sheet metals. To guarantee a strong and reliable bond, we leverage advanced non-linear simulations. These simulations subject the joint to pulling forces from various angles, mimicking real-world stresses.

Key benefits of our simulations:

  • Identify weak spots: We pinpoint stress concentrations that could compromise the joint’s performance, allowing for targeted design improvements.
  • Balance performance and size: We optimize the interface design to achieve the desired strength while minimizing its footprint, saving valuable space in your product.

Beyond validation:

Our simulations go beyond simply verifying existing designs. They empower us to explore different material combinations, joint geometries, and fastening methods, ultimately leading to superior joint performance and product optimization.
