New Parallel Computing support for Real-Time Workshop

MathWorks has announced a new capability that accelerates code generation for design engineers. This enhancement is available through Real-Time Workshop, a code generation tool that utilises the performance scaling capabilities of Parallel Computing Toolbox and Matlab Distributed Computing Server (MDCS). The capability also extends existing parallel computing support in other MathWorks tools to improve the overall efficiency of working with large-scale applications, including computationally-intensive design tasks such as updating models and running simulations.

In addition to Real-Time Workshop, Parallel Computing Toolbox and Matlab Distributed Computing Server support other products for model-based design including Simulink, Simulink Design Optimisation, Simulink Control Design, and Simulink Verification and Validation. Using the functionality provided by MathWorks parallel tools, engineers can take advantage of high-performance hardware – from multicore and multiprocessor desktops to clusters – in their design exploration, verification and validation, and implementation activities.
