In this step we assign silicon to the seven chips.
1. Select the seven chips. They are all on the same PCB:
NoteDon't forget the larger chip under the heat sink. (You may have to hide the heat sink to see it.)
2. Select the two capacitors and the transformer.
3. Click Edit from the Materials context panel:
4. On the Materials quick edit dialog, select the material type:
- In the Type row, click in the right-side column.
- Select Solid.
5. From the Name menu, select Silicon.
6. Click Apply.

7. To verify that the Silicon material is properly assigned, check the Design Study Bar and the part coloring:
- Parts 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 should be listed under Silicon in the Design Study Bar.
- The chips should be colored to correspond to the Silicon color in the legend.
NoteAutodesk Simulation CFD includes a compact thermal model material to simulate the thermal performance of integrated circuits using a two resistor compact thermal model. To keep things simple for the purposes of this tutorial, we used a silicon solid material instead.
