Editor’s Pick of the Week – BlockBuilder Environment Enhances Simulink
By Tony Lockwood
“… BlockBuilder uses a freeform workspace. So, you doodle out your ideas on some physical design and leverage some algorithms from Maple for your analyses. Light analysis. Heavy analysis. More exacting designs. All your choosing until you are satisfied that you have mathematically developed your model.
“The really, really cool thing is that all the while you're doing this, you are building a Simulink-ready S-Function block. Further, since this block you created in BlockBuilder encapsulates your Maple mathematical analysis, it enhances and extends the resultant Simulink design while saving time and reducing errors.”
“…think of BlockBuilder as your project notebook with lots of smarts, on steroids, dynamic, and broken free of tactile limitations. …I feel that it will do for initial development what word processing did for the typewriter.”
