Saber solutions software is built in two main parts : General Configuration and Functionalities.
Basic configuration
 Simulator: used to simulate
 Sketch: used to design
 Template: basic library with ≈2,000 models
 Comoscope: used to visualize simulation results. It allows to apply a great number of measures for post processing : overshoot, risetime, THD,FFT, Max value, etc.

Analysis Type
Navigate to :
Operating point (DC) Analysis
 General Description:
The DC operating point analysis calculates the steady state of the system at time=0, with all timevarying parameters and their derivatives set to 0. All dynamic elements are effectively removed from the circuit:
 Inductors are shorted,
 Capacitors are opened,
 Timedependent sources are removed,
 Noise sources set to 0,
 AC sources set to 0.

This is used as an initial point for subsequent analyses.
 Required Parameters:
There is no need of specifical parameters. You can simply select OK to run a DC operating point analysis.
 Comments:
 Input and output files can be specified.
 Different algorithms are available for difficult circuits.
 After running an operating point, a report is generated for more information (determine possible inccorect part parameters).
Transient Analysis
 General Description:
Transient analysis calculates the behavior of a system as a function of time (for example, it analyzes the effect of timevarying dynamic elements in the system). Basically, each calculated data point in time is called a time step.
 Required Parameters:
 Comments:
 To allow for file comparison you can specify plot file names.
 Transient analyses can start from zero (no Operating Point analysis required) but Saber software uses the initial point file created from a DC operating point analysis of the system, as the starting point of the TR analysis.
 Advanced simulation controls are available to calibrate accuracy.
Small signal frequency
 General Description:
– Frequency (or smallsignal AC) analysis calculates the behavior of a system as a function of frequency.
– This is a linear analysis about a specified operating point. The default operating point is the output of the DC analysis.
 Required Parameters
 Comments:
You must have an AC voltage or current source specified in the circuit.
To allow for file comparison, you can specify plot file names.
You can specify number of frequency points calculated, as well as linear or logarithmic spacing of those points.
AC analyses are useful in several areas, including:

 Filter design
 Open and closed loop control design
 Stability analysis
 In general, any time you need to know how something behaves as a function of frequency
 How does it work ?
Smallsignal AC analyses characterize nonlinear systems in the frequency domain by frequencysweeping a small sinusoidal signal at the input. The frequency response is determined by linearizing the system models around an operating point and sweeping a userdefined frequency range.This small sinusoid keeps the system running in the linear region of operation around a previously calculated operating point.
Periodic Small Signal
Periodic AC (PAC) Analysis calculates the transfer functions and Bode plots of nonlinear periodic circuits. The AC analysis assumes circuits to be linearized around a biasing DC operating point.
Such an assumption is not applicable to switching circuits, such as power converters or inverters where the concept of a DC operating point is replaced by a periodic operating point. The toggling between states according to a given PWM method involves nonlinear operations that generate harmonics and intermodulation products. The periodic smallsignal analysis uses transient analysis to generate the frequency response. The harmonic noise is filtered out, and phase/gain information is extracted at the swept frequency by monitoring the convergence of Fourier series coefficients over time.
DC Sweep
 General Description:
Sweeps an independent DC voltage or current source over a userdefined range of value and computes the DC operating point for each sweep value. It provides the information on how an independent source affects the DC operating point over a range of values.
 Required Parameters:
 Independent Source (e.g. v_dc.v1).
 Sweep Range
 Comments:
 Requires DC Operating Point analysis to be run first (or run from zero)
 Input and output files can be specified
 Useful for finding the transfer function of an amplifier, component thresholds, etc. It allows you to study a circuit with the xaxis (independent variable) chosen as something other than time.
 Parameter Sweep:
A parameter sweep analysis allows you to fine‑tune designs. For example, you can use this analysis to determine wire sizes by reducing a wire’s area until the wire fuses or until the voltage drop across it becomes unacceptably high.
Multivary
MultiVary analysis supports changing multiple parameter values together during the simulation runs. Using this feature, you can define the number of simulation runs and the set of parameter values to be used in each simulation run.
