Maplesoft Enhances Simulink® Connectivity with New Tool
Launches BlockImporter for Simulink

Waterloo, Canada; March 12th 2007: Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science, and mathematics, today announced the launch of BlockImporter for Simulink®, a Maple™ add-on tool that further enhances connectivity with the MathWorks® suite of products. The new product imports Simulink® diagrams into Maple and converts them to mathematical expressions for analysis and problem-solving.

Once these diagrams are converted into mathematical equations, they can be analyzed, optimized, and simplified, then converted back to Simulink® using another Maplesoft product, BlockBuilder™*. This enables the user to validate the mathematical integrity of the model, perform further analysis, document the system, eliminate algebraic loops, and increase Simulink® execution speed.

“Simulink® is an excellent tool for defining mathematical models using schematic blocks. However, many engineers experience problems when the project becomes large and/or when several people contribute to the model,” said Jim Cooper, CEO and President, Maplesoft. “With BlockImporter for Simulink®, engineers can validate such complex models easily, and significantly increase speed without losing model fidelity.”

BlockImporter joins a comprehensive suite of offerings from Maplesoft that support MathWorks products. This includes the Maple Toolbox for MATLAB® and BlockBuilder for Simulink®.

Availability and Pricing
Professional, single user licenses of BlockImporter for Simulink® are available for $4995. Maplesoft is also offering a bundle of BlockImporter and BlockBuilder for $5995. Academic and volume discounts are available. The product is available directly from the Maplesoft Web Store and via Maplesoft Sales at 1-800-267-6583. Outside of the US & Canada, it can be obtained from Maplesoft’s reseller partners. A list of partners is available online at http://www.maplesoft.com/contact/international/index.aspx.
