Design Of Electronic Enclosure For Given Thermal Load
In this paper, we will be designing the Chassis according to JSS-55555. The electronic chassis contain many
electronic components including Printed Circuit Board (PCB), connectors, etc. Connectors are soldered to the PCB to
complete the electronic circuit. This solder joint are weakest link in electronic circuit. Special attention has to be made while
designing the circuit and chassis so that the stress level on this solder joints are minimum. Hence for this reason, special
attention is done while designing of chassis and mounting of circuit boards so that the natural frequency of chassis does not
match with the external natural frequency. By adopting this way, we can avoid the phenomenon of resonance. To ensure that
the chassis will sustain such external factors, Ministry of Defense of India has listed Qualification Test (QT) which is
released in Joint Service Specification (JSS) manual, which the chassis has to qualify to be used in defense system. Every
circuit board emit some heat which increase its temperature. The ICs, connector and other parts of the circuit board have
some range of operating temperature beyond which the ICs, connectors and other parts get effected. To ensure that the
temperature of the circuit board is well within operating range, thermal management has to be done. We have choose proper
fans and there placement for most efficient thermal management.
