Release 14 with Service Pack 2, launched on March 7, 2005, provides updates to MATLAB 7, Simulink 6, and 68 other products. The primary focus of this service pack is on quality improvements; it also contains more than 100 minor features. Release 14 with Service Pack 2 also delivers support for C++ code generation in Real-Time Workshop and includes two new products for distributed computing launched since Service Pack 1.
* Indicates product was introduced after Release 14 with Service Pack 1, and is now available on the Service Pack 2 CD.
The Distributed Computing Toolbox enables you to execute coarse-grained MATLAB algorithms and Simulink models in a cluster of computers. You can prototype and develop applications in the MATLAB environment and then use the Distributed Computing Toolbox to divide them into independent tasks. The MATLAB Distributed Computing Engine (available separately) evaluates these tasks on remote MATLAB sessions.
** Indicates product upgrade was introduced after Release 14 with Service Pack 2 and is available to download via the Web.
The Aerospace Blockset extends Simulink with blocks for modeling, integrating, and simulating aircraft, spacecraft, rocket, propulsion systems, and unmanned airborne vehicles. New features include:
The Bioinformatics Toolbox offers computational molecular biologists and other research scientists an open and extensible environment in which to explore ideas, prototype new algorithms, and build applications in drug research, genetic engineering, and other genomics and proteomics projects. New features include:
The OPC Toolbox extends MATLAB and Simulink with tools for interacting with OPC servers. You can read, write, and log OPC data from devices that conform to the OPC Foundation Data Access standard, such as distributed control systems, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and programmable logic controllers. New features include:
