Saber could be also used for Power Electronic Applications

  • In comparison to traditional power electronics verification flows, Saber:
    • Reduces build and test time
    • Reduces modeling and simulation time
    • Finds more errors before Built and test and deployment
  • Unlike PWL (Piecewise Linear) tools, Saber can model real-world components
  • Unlike SPICE tools, Saber provides unique capabilities for power electronics applications

Saber Difference

  • Simple/ideal, high fidelity, and average model libraries
  • Model authoring
    • Text: MAST, VHDL-AMS
    • Graphical: StateAMS
  • Better convergence/speed: simulation using accurate models identifies more bugs and enables calibration during design
  • Characterization tools: Use characterized semiconductor models from the built-in library and modeling tools (IGBTs, MOSFETs, diodes, etc.)
  • Analyze complex power electronics systems for signal integrity and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) 
  • SPICE import: Spice-to-Saber translator for SPICE model import
  • Control logic design, import, co-simulation
  • Integrated robust design: robust design accounts for component variation that improves yield
  • Integrated functional safety: fault simulation identifies critical hardware failures that cause field failures



SABER use of power electronics applications : results are really close because SABER can reproduce the datashaeet (in terms of properties, components, scan curves…) as above.
