MathWorks has announced Release 2013b (R2013b) of its MATLAB and Simulink product families.
Focusing on increased systems integration and compatibility with the latest range of updates, Release 2013b sees MATLAB and Simulink gain greater integration with increasingly common hardware platforms such as 64-bit processors and the Arduino open-source platform.
Stephane Marouani, Country Manager – Australia, MathWorks explains Release 2013b seeks to update their model-based design toolkit to mesh with the emerging technologies of today. MathWorks’ continuing goal is to sustain best-practice design by keeping pace with both technological and developmental trends in the many industries served by them around the world.
The latest range of updates will also significantly enhance MATLAB’s programming capabilities, including greater support for unstructured data types and C/C++ code generation. A range of MATLAB toolboxes will receive new features including SPI-based communication with integrated circuits for statistical modelling, and a native ODBC driver to improve access speeds for instrument control.
According to Marouani, MathWorks has sought to further build on their reputation for highly reliable and cross-functional tools that can be applied innovatively across a range of industries, and now looks forward to receiving feedback on this latest release from the technical community.
