Latest version of MapleSim offers 'unmatched' system level modelling

The latest release of MapleSim, the Modelica-based physical modelling and simulation platform, has been announced by Maplesoft.

With tighter Modelica integration and more simulation, analysis and connectivity capabilities, MapleSim 6 is designed to offer even more ways for engineers to meet and exceed their system level requirements. The platform is based on the open standard Modelica modelling language for describing physical models and components. It includes a view that instantly shows the corresponding Modelica code for any subsystem or component. By looking at the code, users can tell precisely what their model is doing and more easily correct or improve its behaviour. Other Modelica features include the ability to open and immediately use Modelica files inside MapleSim; the ability to easily save any MapleSim model as a Modelica file; and, through the new MapleSim Connector for FMI, the ability to export MapleSim models in a standard format. "The combination of Modelica, an open, object oriented, system level modelling language, with the symbolic computation power of MapleSim enables a level of understanding, power and extensibility that is not possible with 'black box' tools," commented Laurent Bernardin, Maplesoft's executive vice president. MapleSim 6 is available now from Adept Scientific.
