Analog Devices, Xilinx, and MathWorks announced a series of design conferences for analog, mixed-signal and embedded systems engineers. During the conference, attendees will learn how MATLAB and Simulink can be used to develop, model and deploy high-performance signal processing systems. Design Conference 2013 will take place in the United States, Germany and China. Avnet, Digilent and 4DSP, sponsors of the U.S. conferences, will showcase their industry-leading solutions based on ADI’s analog and mixed-signal technologies.
MathWorks introduced Phased Array System Toolbox, which enables radar and acoustics engineers to build monostatic, bistatic, and multistatic architectures for a variety of array geometries. The MathWorks tool also gives engineers the ability to model these architectures on stationary or moving platforms. Array analysis and visualization tools enable the evaluation of spatial, spectral, and temporal performance. Phased Array System Toolbox is available now. Prices start at $1,350 (USD).
MathWorks is offering a series of one-day events focusing on MATLAB and Simulink. The MATLAB Tour features presentations and technical sessions. The events will highlight how technical computing and Model-Based Design are driving innovation in engineering and science. MATLAB Tour 2011 will present the new features and benefits of the latest product releases, including R2011b. The events will take place September 26 to November 17th in cities around the world.
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).
MathWorks has updated their Polyspace embedded code verification tools. Polyspace code verifiers detect and prove the absence of overflow, divide-by-zero, out-of-bounds array access, and other run-time errors in source code. Polyspace features improved metrics web dashboard, automated scheduling of verification jobs, e-mail notification and increased code metric support. The MathWorks tools help engineers to select and track embedded software quality metrics and thresholds. Polyspace is ideal for automotive, aerospace, defense, industrial automation, and machinery applications.
Renesas Electronics announced the Velocity Lab, which is a suite of embedded systems development components. Velocity Lab enables engineers to develop embedded solutions quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Velocity Lab supports Renesas’ 90-nanometer (nm) SH7254x and SH7253x MCU families for powertrain applications. Renesas is also developing a Velocity Lab solution for the R8C and the V850 microcontroller families and expects to also port the solution to the RX Group and other MCUs in the future.
MathWorks announced their MATLAB Virtual Conference. The online event will take place Tuesday, September 28, 2010. The MATLAB Virtual Conference features presentations (with live question-and-answer sessions), on-demand presentations, an exhibit floor, content resource library and a networking lounge. The free virtual event will demonstrate how engineers and scientists can get the most benefit from working with MATLAB and Simulink. MATLAB and Simulink users worldwide will be able to chat with MathWorks staff and the user community during their local business hours.
MathWorks introduced Release 2010b (R2010b) of their MATLAB and Simulink product families. New features include new communications system design capabilities in MATLAB, automated PID controls tuning, GigE Vision hardware standard support, SimRF system-level modeling of RF receiver architectures, and enhanced Simulink and Stateflow support for creating reusable models. Release 2010b updates 84 MathWorks products, including Polyspace code verification products. The new release is available immediately and is being provided to users with current subscriptions to MathWorks Software Maintenance Service.
MathWorks Academic Virtual Conference consists of presentations (with live question-and-answer sessions), on-demand presentations, an exhibit floor, and a networking lounge. The event will showcase real-world teaching examples from academics using MATLAB and Simulink to inspire learning and advance education in engineering, science, and mathematics. MathWorks Academic Virtual Conference will take place at 12:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, May 11, 2010.
