MathWorks’ MATLAB and Simulink integration on the latest Vortex OpenSplice v6.8.1

OpenSplice 6.8.1.pngPrismTech is pleased to announce the availability of Vortex OpenSplice version 6.8.1. with Mathworks’ MATLAB and Simulink integration as major enhancements, such as:

  • The generation of MATLAB classes from existing IDL including support for IDL sequences and bounded strings
  • The Simulink integration now supports wait conditions on both read (wait for regular and historical data availability) and write (wait for matching subscribers). In addition, IDL sequences are now also supported for Simulink
  • The Vortex DDS ‘block set’ now also supports Simulink Coder, allowing users with a Simulink Coder license (as available from MathWorks) to generate C/C++-code from their Simulink models. This code can then be deployed as a regular Vortex OpenSplice DDS application on supported target platforms.

As of version 6.8, Vortex™ OpenSplice™ provides OMG DDS-based integration with MathWorks’ MATLAB® and Simulink® products. MATLAB classes as well as Simulink BUS definitions are automatically mapped to their corresponding Topic definitions in DDS.

To ensure type agreement between DDS and MATLAB/Simulink applications, MATLAB classes and Simulink blocks can be exported to the IDL format that is well-known for DDS applications. The integration allows users to create DDS entities in their MATLAB/Simulink model and associate them with desired Quality-of-Services in separate XML files to provide maximum flexibility and control how and when data is exchanged. These capabilities allow users to transparently share any data between different MATLAB/Simulink applications and/or pure DDS applications no matter where they have been deployed in the network.

The Vortex OpenSplice v6.8.1 software is now available for evaluation download from PrismTech’s website at:

PrismTech Announces Availability of Spectra CX and MathWorks Simulink Integration Demoware

Rapid Waveform Development with Spectra CX and MathWorks Simulink Integration

Boston, MA, USA – May 7, 2013 – PrismTech, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, is pleased to announce the availability of Spectra CX and Simulink Integration demoware.

Reducing the time and cost of designing, implementing, testing and deploying Software Communications Architecture’s (SCA) waveforms is an increasing concern for Software Defined Radios (SDR) developers.  PrismTech has created a Spectra CX and MathWorks Simulink integration, an automated process for building SCA waveforms; the first integrated development environment that addresses both the algorithmic and non-algorithmic aspects of a SCA waveform.

The PrismTech Spectra CX and MathWorks Simulink Integration demoware is available from:

Benefits include:

  • Reducing the opportunity for human error during transition from a Simulink model to production code, as the transition for Simulink to SCA architecture and code is automated;
  • By leveraging the code generation capabilities of Simulink and Spectra CX new SCA waveforms can be rapidly designed, developed, tested and deployed with minimal coding effort.

For further information about the availability of the integration, please email us ( or contact us at +44 (0)191-4979850.
