PROTOTYPES, ALGORITHMS, and NEW product development
Focuses on the application of rapid control prototyping algorithms during product development. Benefits to product designers if they uncover problems with a control algorithm while using a rapid control prototype; Use of prototyping algorithms by controller developers; Processes involved in the software development of the algorithms.
PROTOTYPES, ENGINEERING design, COMPUTER software, ALGORITHMS, and ELECTRONIC systems
Provides information on the use of PXI systems in custom prototypes with input-output connectivity for high-speed signal types. Benefits of PXI systems to design engineers; Means that the prototype hardware will integrate with the control design software tools; Use of control algorithm.
DISTRIBUTED computing, ALGORITHMS, COMPUTERS, and ENGINEERING instruments
The article deals with the enhancements made by The MathWorks in its MATLAB and Distributed Computing Toolbox products meant to allow increased performance and large data set handling. MATLAB now supports for multithreaded computation for multicore systems and 64-bit Solaris platforms. Distributing Computing Toolbox now offers capabilities to develop applications that interleave parallel and serial code and interactively prototyping parallel algorithms on a desktop computer by running four local MATLAB sessions.
