Overview SaberEXP is a piecewise linear (PWL) circuit simulator that enables design teams to start early and validate their power supply/converter and motor drive designs prior to physical implementation with its fastest simulation convergence. It provides a scalable simulation solution for accelerating power electronics designs with its seamless export flow into SaberRD for high fidelity large system design leading to lower development costs.
Benefits: Simple and more robust to use than SPICE-like tools High-speed PWL solver with an event queue for event-driven and digital signals Automatic time-step calculation based on the internal circuit time constants Faster results for the stiff power electronic circuits in both time and frequency domains without integration error Fast and accurate Periodic AC analysis to verify the stability of Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) without tedious average model derivations Parametric and statistical design capabilities for optimizing and verifying system robustness Suite of measurement and waveform calculation tools for analyzing results A single standard simulation environment with seamless export flow into SaberRD for high fidelity large system design Minimizes costly physical hardware testing, saves project resources and accelerates time-to-market A Comprehensive Solution for Power Electronics Systems With increased focus on electrification and rapid growth of the power electronics market, design teams need a robust and efficient simulation and modeling solution to predict hardware failures during early design phases. Simulation helps to reduce iterations of hardware prototypes and time-to-market that results in reduced development costs.
Depending on the application, the simulation and modeling requirements vary a lot between different stages of product development, but there is no single simulation environment that satisfies all simulation and modeling requirements. Synopsys provides you a comprehensive solution to address this challenge with SaberEXP and SaberRD.
