SABER is a proven platform for modeling and simulating physical systems, enabling full-system virtual prototyping for applications in analog/power electronics, electric power generation, conversion, distribution and mechatronics.

SABER is the industry standard for Robust Design methods for mixed-signal, mixed-domain Mechatronic systems. Saber’s highly acclaimed design modeling and powerful simulation tools provide designers the ability to simulate, analyze and verify interactions between multiple physical domains (electrical, magnetic, mechanical, thermal, hydraulic, etc.). With its advanced analysis and modeling capabilities – waveform analyzer, comprehensive model libraries, and multi-language model creation tools – designers can perform optimization, Robust Design, and FMEA on virtual prototypes of any system.

Decades of industry success and innovation have earned Saber a reputation as the solution of choice for design validation and optimization for automotive, aerospace, industrial power and energy systems.
