Synopsys and Analog Devices are working together on model libraries for DC-DC converters and micromodule regulators

The models can be used with the Synopsys Saber simulation tool for system-level virtual prototyping of power designs in electric vehicles, avionics and instrumentation equipment. The availability of Analog Devices’ library of component models in Saber enables design teams to perform simulations at various levels of abstraction, with multi-domain physical modelling and analysis capabilities to explore, measure, and optimize system performance.

“With robust and reliable Saber modelling for our power ICs and µModule devices, system designers can confidently rely on our services, focusing their attention on the rest of their complex designs involving field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), processors, memory, sensors, and data converters,” said Afshin Odabaee, business development director for µModule Power Products at Analog Devices. “Collaborating with Synopsys enables us to deliver a powerful simulation solution based on Saber’s integrated environment for simulation and modelling, allowing our customers to accelerate their time-to-market.”

“Virtual prototyping is essential to accelerate electronic system innovation and address reliability, design targets, software development, and system validation challenges,” said Tom De Schutter, vice president of R&D in the Systems Design Group at Synopsys. “We are proud to collaborate with Analog Devices to distribute their model libraries as part of our virtual prototyping solution. Together, we are enabling our customers to deliver innovative and highly optimized power systems for a broad spectrum of applications.”;
