Maplesoft has released the MapleSim Connectivity Toolbox. This new product enables users to export high-performance MapleSim models into Simulink, thus taking advantage of the intuitive, multi-domain physical modelling environment of MapleSim as part of their toolchain.
Using this toolbox, high-performance, high-fidelity MapleSim models are automatically converted to S-Function blocks for seamless inclusion in Simulink diagrams. Models created this way are highly efficient due to MapleSim's symbolic preprocessing and optimised code generation. For many systems, using MapleSim to create the original model is the only way to create a simulation that is fast enough for use in real-time applications. In addition, this toolbox allows engineers to better understand and more easily reuse their models with the help of MapleSim's analysis tools and design documentation abilities.
