MathWorks aims tools at embedded Linux
The MathWorks has announced the latest release of its MATLAB and Simulink product families, writes Richard Wilson, which include new streaming capabilities for signal processing and video processing in MATLAB and nonlinear solvers for standard and large-scale optimisation.
Release 2010a also introduces Simulink PLC Coder, which helps industrial control system engineers generate IEC 61131 structured text.
This release updates 83 other products, including PolySpace code verification products.
For MATLAB there are signal processing blockset and video and image processing blockset, as well as new system objects for stream processing.
There is also added support for multicore and additional multithreaded math functions in MATLAB.
Simulink will now offer expanded support for large design teams, which includes tunable parameter structures for management of large parameter sets and triggered model blocks and function-call branching for component-based modeling.
