Software: The MathWorks releases version 2010a of Matlab, Simulink products

New are streaming capabilities for signal processing and video processing in Matlab, nonlinear solvers, and expanded Simulink support for large teams designing complex systems.


ctlx_icon_software.gifThe MathWorks announced Release 2010a (R2010a) of its Matlab and Simulink product families. Key in this release are new streaming capabilities for signal processing and video processing in Matlab, nonlinear solvers for standard and large-scale optimization, and expanded Simulink support for large teams designing complex systems. R2010a also introduces The MathWorks 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.

Advancements for the Matlab family include:

•ming algorithms.

• SimBiology: Stochastic approximation expectation-maximization (SAEM), dosing schedules support, and performance enhancements for improved data fitting and modeling for pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD).

R2010a reflects a continued focus on performance within the Matlab product family, including multicore support and performance enhancements for more than 50 functions in Image Processing Toolbox, and additional multithreaded math functions. There are also enhancements to file sharing, path management, and the desktop in Matlab.

With this release, Simulink offers expanded support for large design teams, enabling them to design complex systems more efficiently. These capabilities include tunable parameter structures for management of large parameter sets and triggered model blocks and function-call branching for component-based modeling.

Other Simulink 2010a highlights designed for more efficient embedded system development include:

The new release is available immediately and is being provided to users with current subscriptions to MathWorks Software Maintenance Service. Additional information on R2010a product updates is available online.
