MATHEMATICS, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
20 April 2011
MathWorks has released Matlab Coder, enabling design engineers to automatically generate readable, portable C and C++ code directly from their Matlab algorithms. This new product eliminates the need to manually translate Matlab algorithm code into C and C++ code for prototyping, implementation and software integration. Design engineers can use Matlab to speed up development tasks, such as fixed-point design and prototyping, and then automatically generate C code with Matlab Coder. This automation results in a faster, more efficient system-development workflow.
Matlab Coder supports an extensive set of language features for algorithm development, including built-in matrix math operators and dynamic array handling. Hundreds of operators, functions, and system objects are supported, including many advanced algorithms for DSP and communications. In addition to this latest package, MathWorks has released Simulink Coder and Embedded Coder. These two new products simplify code generation for Simulink and Stateflow users by combining capabilities previously available in multiple MathWorks offerings. The new products incorporate Real-Time Workshop technology and offer full code generation support for rapid prototyping, real-time testing, and production embedded system implementation with built-in links to embedded development environments.
