MathWorks, headquartered in Natick, Massachusetts, is the world’s leading developer and supplier of mathematical computing software. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on its products to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development. MathWorks since its inception in 1984, is privately held. MathWorks produces a comprehensive family of over 90+ software tools for engineers and scientists.These tools are based on MATLAB®, the industry-standard language for technical computing. MATLAB combines numeric computation and visualization with an easy-to-use programming language. MATLAB and related tools are invaluable for data acquisition, data analysis, algorithm development, data visualization, and application development.The Simulink® product family builds on MATLAB, adding functionality for Model-Based Design, system-level simulation, and implementation of embedded systems. Simulink provides a block-diagram environment for modeling, simulating, and implementing complex systems—particularly for control, DSP, and communications systems. Other Simulink tools are Stateflow®, for modeling and implementing even-driven systems; Real-Time Workshop®, for automatically generating real-time code; and xPC Target, for rapid prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop testing.
