Description and Requirements

Lenovo researches, develops, and manufactures x86 processor based servers. The pace of technology change in this market is rapid, and our development engineers are constantly challenged to improve the thermal performance and efficiency of our products. Lenovo is looking for an engineer with a strong desire to innovate on thermal solutions for our server products.

Basic Requirements:

  • Review server system concepts and market requirements and enable a thermal solution that is compliant to the specifications of the critical components.
  • Ensure that the printed circuit board layouts permit thermal solution placement and adequate airflow / waterflow to cool all components
  • Select fans, heat sinks, and other thermal solution components which are low cost yet meet all performance requirements
  • Provide mechanical and thermal review for prototyping boards
  • Document and analyze simulation and test results
  • Write test plans 
  • Conduct thermal tests to qualify the design

Preferred Requirements:

  • Experience using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) tools to predict operating performance of the server is required.
  • Modeling and testing skills to validate a design is required. E.g. measuring airflow and temperature on the air bench is required.
  • Data acquisition and ability to organize and summarize results is required.
  • Code skills such as Matlab, Python, or Java to automate data collection and report generation is desired.
  • Knowledge of computer firmware code and algorithms that set operating points, and fault conditions is desired.
  • Knowledge of CAD, material strength, power consumption, and acoustics requirements and the impact of thermal designs on them is desired.
