FMI Toolbox strengthens MATLAB® and Simulink® as open integration platform in model-based systems engineering.
Lund, Sweden – (June 10, 2013) Modelon, a leading provider of open-standard experience solutions for next generation model-based system engineering, today announced it has become a member of the MathWorks Connections Program. This membership is based on the FMI Toolbox, an extension that brings MATLAB and Simulink into the center of the simulation software ecosystem formed by the Functional Mock-Up Interface (FMI) open standard for tool interoperability and model exchange.
The MathWorks Connections Program is available to third-party organizations that develop and distribute complementary, commercially available products and services based on MATLAB and Simulink. These partner offerings address technical needs across a wide range of applications and industries worldwide with software and hardware products that extend the usage of MATLAB and Simulink. These solutions seamlessly integrate with MathWorks products and ensure ongoing compatibility in conjunction with new MathWorks releases.
“We are very pleased to be part of The MathWorks Connections Program,” said Magnus Gäfvert, CEO with Modelon AB. “This is an opportunity that will enable us to align our solutions with one of the most widely used simulation and embedded function development software solutions in the world. It will allow us to leverage our open solution platform in a wide and extended range of application and industry contexts, and thereby saving time and reducing cost and risk for our customers in their systems engineering project challenges“.
FMI Toolbox provides systems, control and simulation engineers with a solution for seamless exchange of simulation models, or Functional Mock-Up Units (FMUs), between any FMI compliant tool and MATLAB and Simulink, based on a proven implementation of the FMI standard. It allows users to combine physical and functional models from different sources for integration on system level to assess and evaluate design choices and performance. The command line interface and the Simulink blockset offer users full flexibility to exploit the simulation and computational power of MATLAB and Simulink to create insight into the interactions and behavior of complex systems.
MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of technical computing, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a graphical environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain dynamic and embedded systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on these product families to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, electronics, financial services, biotech-pharmaceutical, and other industries. MathWorks products are also fundamental teaching and research tools in the world’s universities and learning institutions. Founded in 1984, MathWorks employs more than 2800 people in 15 countries, with headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA. For additional information, visit www.mathworks.com.
