Synopsys and Analog Devices Collaborate to Accelerate Power System Design

Comprehensive and Efficient Power Management Modeling for Automotive, Aerospace and Industrial Applications

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) and Analog Devices, Inc. today announced their collaboration to provide model libraries for DC/DC ICs and µModule® (micromodule) regulators with Synopsys’ industry-leading simulation tool, Saber, part of Synopsys’ virtual prototyping solution. With this new library in the Saber system-level simulation system, powertrain designers for products such as electric vehicles, avionic machines, instrumentation equipment and supercomputers can perform accurate multi-domain simulations with precision and speed, accelerating the design process and time-to-market.

“With robust and reliable Saber modeling 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 modeling, allowing our customers to accelerate their time-to-market.”

From developing an electric vehicle’s powertrain or charging system, to designing reliable aerospace systems, accurate models and powerful simulation are key to meeting competitive design targets. The availability of Analog Devices’ library of comprehensive component models in Saber enables design teams to perform simulations at various levels of abstraction, with multi-domain physical modeling and unmatched analysis capabilities to explore, measure, and optimize system performance.

“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.”

Industrial Ethernet Next Generation Connections

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Amphenol ICC

No longer are hierarchical communication models effective in this new era of Industry 4.0. We need to look at an independent communication model that includes a single network with industrial ethernet at its core. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Peter Swift about Amphenol’s SPE and iX Industrial family of connectors. They take a closer look at the details of these connector solutions and investigate why they are a great fit for the next generation of industrial automation applications.
