Hyperlynx Thermal - how to save the parameter definition

When I transfer a PCB layout from PADS Layout to Hyperlynx Thermal I then set all the parameters, such as environment and power dissipation for each component.  Is there some way to save this info, so that when I change something in layout and transfer again I don't have to reenter all of this?

 

Thanks,

You can write those components with dissipated power defined into the master library(Menu Libary->Work Library, move components in the work library into the master library) and update the current work libary from the master library (Menu Libary->Work Library, Updating from Master...) next time.  Another way is that you may create a CSV power file and import it. There is no way to recall environment setting.

If a component's dissipation varies on different cases,  you have to use power scaling to adjust it. Power dissipation file is simple and an easy way to your requirement, the format  is like this:

COMPONENT

your_part_number1 dissipatedpowervalue1

you_part_number2 dissipatedpowervalue2

If you have components with 4-5w dissipation,   I strongly suggest use Flo.pcb instead of Hyperlynx thermal.
