MathWorks has introduced Release 2017b (R2017b), which includes new features in its MATLAB and Simulink design software, six new products, and updates and bug fixes to 86 other products.
STMicroelectronics' software expansions X-CUBE-MEMS1 and X-CUBE-MEMSMIC1 have recently been updated to offer features such as real-time acoustic beamforming, as well as to improve how data from the motion sensors is processed.
Yokogawa Electric Corporation has developed Virtual-M3, a simulation software tool for its FA-M3V range-free multicontroller.
The 1.0 release of LabVIEW NXG helps engineers performing benchtop measurements increase their productivity with non-programming workflows to acquire and iteratively analyse measurement data, according to NI.
For users looking to get started with Sigfox, the Xkit has a full suite of features and accessories to empower anyone to set up an IoT solution, even with little hardware experience.
RS Components, the trading brand of Electrocomponents, the global distributor for engineers, has recorded 100,000 users of the educational network licence for the company's free-for-download DesignSpark PCB design tool.
The XJTAG software for PADS schematic design significantly increases the design for test and debug capabilities of the schematic capture and PCB design environment.
Small electronic products like wearables and IoT devices can now provide high-end audio features with the help of a graphical design tool for STM32 microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics.
Future Facilities has conducted a survey of over 350 professional electronics engineers in an effort to learn how they cope with thermal issues.
Version 1.2 of Altium CircuitStudio is a professional PCB design tool that is ready to pick up and go. With powerful schematic capture, feature-rich PCB editing and centralised component management, it will inspire designers to invent the future, instead of being preoccupied with just making it work.
If you're still using point solutions and wasting valuable time and energy working on integration instead of the business challenges you're ultimately trying to solve, it's time to consider a platform-based approach. You need a platform that provides the right starting point, uses the right software approach and is supported by a robust ecosystem.
NI has announced LabVIEW 2016 system design software, empowering engineers to simplify development and effectively integrate software from the ecosystem into their systems.
MathWorks has announced updated apps for analysis and design of control systems. As part of Release 2016a (R2016a), Control System Toolbox now offers a Control System Tuner app that allows engineers to automatically tune SISO or MIMO control systems in MATLAB and Simulink.
MathWorks has attained TÜV SÜD certification for its Simulink technology for use in IEC 62304-compliant development processes. The certification gives engineers designing medical devices greater confidence when using the company's model-based design tools.
STMicroelectronics has made its free development tools for STM32 microcontrollers available to Mac computer users, who can now easily create embedded designs without leaving their preferred operating environment.
