Method of Computer Simulation of Thermal Processes to Ensure the Laser Gyros Stable Operation
Modern and advanced electronic equipment is developing along the way of miniaturization of electronic devices (EDs) and increasing their package density, accompanied by growth of heat emission. At the same time, EDs are continuously required to become more reliable and trouble-free.
In this paper we use the generally accepted definition of EDs as devices which operate utilizing electrical, thermal, optical or acoustic phenomena. One of such devices is a laser gyro (LG), composed of angular rotation sensors on ring lasers, and electronics to provide their functioning and signal processing.
In recent years, thermal simulation is being used in the designing of EDs in order to create competitive equipment in the shortest possible time and at the lowest possible cost. It allows to check thermal calculations and to optimize the design at the early stages of projecting, to reduce the time of testing of developed devices and to exclude redesigning caused by pre-calculation errors.
