MathWorks recently introduced MATLAB Coder, which generates standalone C and C++ code from MATLAB code. The generated source code is portable and readable. MATLAB Coder eliminates the need to manually translate MATLAB algorithm code into C and C++ code for prototyping, implementation, and software integration. MATLAB Coder supports a subset of MATLAB language features for algorithm development, including built-in matrix math operators and dynamic array handling. MATLAB Coder is available now. List prices start at $6,500 (USD).
Vector Fabrics rolled out vfLabs, which provides access to pre-release versions of vfAnalyst features. The cloud-based tool suite for parallelizing sequential C code gives software engineers an early opportunity to try out new functionality as it is developed. vfLabs enables users to selectively augment the capabilities of the vfAnalyst tool. Over time, features initially provided in vfLabs will migrate out of vfLabs to full production status, being replaced by new features for evaluation. vfLabs will also provide pre-release access to features of future Vector Fabrics tools as they become available. vfLabs is free of charge to vfAnalyst subscribers.
