Welcome to the OCP Thermal Sim Methodology workstream page

The Thermal Sim Methodology will try to standardize aspects of the thermal characterization of drives and systems to enable drive and system designers to use common methods, metrics, and assumptions when designing for thermal targets required by end-users. The goal of the methodology is to enable both "apples-to-apples" comparison of drives in a system, and also to enable the ecosystem to better anticipate thermal requirements of new form factors being considered by the ecosystem.
