Simplifying the development of mechatronics, the combination of mechanical and electronincs engineering, is the goal of a new design language extension released Wednesday (Oct. 8) by Mathworks Inc.
Mathworks (Natick, Mass.) said its Simscape language extension will ease the modeling of an entire multidomain system--electrical, mechanical, control and software--using a single icon to represent the component in its Matlab simulation environment. Matlab is a widely used tool for algorithm development.
