Video 1: Time Domain Analysis
This video introduces the time domain, or transient, analysis. Be sure to download and complete the Lab 1 exercise before moving on.
Video 2: Schematic Capture and Parts Library
This video describes the schematic capture capabilities of SaberRD. The vast library of available parts is also demonstrated. Be sure to complete Lab 2 before moving on.
Video 3: Operating Point and Small Signal Frequency Analysis
This video shows the operating point (DC) analysis as well as the Small Signal Frequency (AC) analysis. Be sure to complete the exercise for Lab 3 before moving on.
Video 4: Test Automation
This video introduces SaberRD Experiment Analyzer. Experiment Analyzer is a powerful feature that allows you to automate frequently used tests, waveforms, measurements, and reporting. Be sure to complete the exercise for Lab 4 afterwards.
Video 5: Design Optimization
This video shows how to use Saber’s built-in optimizer to optimize a design. The optimizer can also be used for worst-case analysis or model development and curve matching. Be sure to complete the exercise for Lab 5 before moving on.
Video 6: Introduction to Modeling
This video is an introduction to the modeling tools available in the Saber environment. Be sure to complete the exercise for Lab 6 afterwards.
Video 7: Importing SPICE Models
This video shows how to use Saber’s SPICE import utility. Importing a SPICE model can be useful when you are not able to use Saber’s built-in characterization tools or find your part in the Saber library. Be sure to complete the exercise for Lab 7 after watching the video.
Video 8: Modeling with Table Look-Up
This video shows how to use Saber’s Table Look-Up (TLU) Modeling utility. TLUs are an extremely versatile modeling approach and useful anytime you can describe behavior with tabular data. Be sure to complete Lab 8 after watching the video.
Video 9: Modeling with StateAMS
This video shows how to use Saber’s StateAMS modeling utility. StateAMS is a graphical way to develop behavioral models for anything analog, mixed-signal, or digital without having to learn a behavioral language such as Saber’s MAST or the IEEE standard, VHDL-AMS. Be sure to complete Lab 9 after watching the video.
Video 10: Model Characterization with the Power MOSFET Tool
This is video 10 of the Synopsys SaberRD Training series. This is appropriate for engineers who want to ramp-up on SaberRD circuit analysis and multi-domain simulation capabilities and includes accompanying hands-on labs. This video introduces SaberRD’s power device characterization tools using a Power MOSFET as an example. The same methodology applies for IGBTs, BJTs, etc.
