MathWorks announced that its Target Support Package and Embedded IDE Link products now support the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and Embedded Linux through the GNU compiler tool chain. As a result, engineers can automate project creation in Eclipse and deploy real-time embedded systems on Linux using automatically generated code from MATLAB and Simulink models. These capabilities enable engineers using Model-Based Design to rapidly implement and verify algorithms on processors that can run Embedded Linux, such as ARM, Freescale, and Intel.
The MathWorks announced a new version of Parallel Computing Toolbox that now provides an improved distributed array construct to enable MATLAB users to directly access from a MATLAB session data that is stored on multicore computers or computer clusters. In addition, key algorithms in Statistics Toolbox and Communications Toolbox now execute faster when run in conjunction with Parallel Computing Toolbox.
