JULY 22--The MathWorks (Natick, MA; www.mathworks.com) is now offering Release 13, the latest version of its family of software offerings. MATLAB 6.5 includes new JIT Acceleration, which provides faster execution, making MATLAB 6.5 a powerful alternative to manual coding in C for technical computing applications. Simulink 5 provides new support for multidomain modeling and simulation coupled with embedded target support, creating an environment for the end-to-end process of embedded system design.
Release 13 of The MathWorks product family also includes 10 new products and upgrades of more than 40 other products. More than 50,000 MathWorks customers worldwide are expected to download the updated products as part of the initial distribution.
"With Release 13, The MathWorks takes a major step to eliminate the performance gap between MATLAB and languages such as C, C++, and FORTRAN for engineering and scientific applications. For developers of embedded systems, Simulink 5 delivers powerful new capabilities for developing and deploying real-time systems in a production process," said Jack Little, CEO, The MathWorks."
