Product Details Supplier Info More products

Mathworks has released the 2009b (R2009b) Matlab and Simulink product families.

R2009b includes features for faster performance and the enhanced handling of large datasets.

It builds on component-based modelling features in Simulink and updates 83 other products, including Polyspace code verification products.

Key R2009b highlights for the Matlab product family include extended support for multi-core and multi-processor systems, as well as improvements for handling large datasets.

Matlab and the Image Processing Toolbox now offer more multi-threaded implementations of functions and the Statistics Toolbox now features parallel computing support for several functions.

For users with large datasets, Matlab now offers the ability to perform FFTs on datasets larger than 2Gb.

The Image Processing Toolbox includes a function to support the processing of arbitrarily large TIFF images.

The Parallel Computing Toolbox features a new interface for working with large datasets that are distributed across a cluster.

The Mapping Toolbox in Matlab enables the search and retrieval of geographic datasets from Web Map Service (WMS) servers, such as NASA JPL Onearth and Microsoft Terraserver.

Users can now access the Matlab Central File Exchange, which includes thousands of user-contributed files, directly from the Matlab environment.

For model-based design, R2009b enables Simulink users to capture design variants in models and switch between model-wide configurations to better manage design alternatives and reuse.

Engineers can now simulate and generate embeddable code from Matlab programs and Simulink models containing arrays that dynamically change size over time, which are useful for applications such as object detection and motion tracking.

Simulink Control Design offers the automated tuning and turnkey PID controller blocks in Simulink for the faster design and verification of these frequently used controllers.

The Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder provides more efficient code generation for signal processing applications, with reduced data copies and optimised matrix operations.

Simulink Verification and Validation – Model Advisor Configuration Editor enables users to manage and deploy a consistent set of checks and rules for modelling standards across an organisation.

The Simulink Design Verifier is a new API that allows embedded Matlab to be used as a property specification language.

The new release is available immediately and is being provided to users with current subscriptions to the Mathworks Software Maintenance Service.
