Here's a video titled Thermal Analysis of a Hardware Blade System. The "blade system" is Cadence's Protium FPGA prototyping system. Not the X2 that we announced a few weeks ago, but the X1. The thermal analysis is done using Cadence's Celsius tool. Yes, we use our own tools to design our hardware solutions. The analysis involves heat sinks, boards, and a lot of computational fluid dynamics to evaluate the airflow and how the air is heated as it passes over the hot FPGAs. The video is 10 minutes and goes into a reasonable level of detail.
