Maplesoft Expands Rapid Control Prototyping Capabilities

By DE Editors

A new add-on had been added to Maplesoft’s MapleSim. The MapleSim Connector for dSPACE Systems is an engineering software product that provides streamlined solutions for rapid control systems prototyping with MapleSim real-time simulation.

As the Connector automatically converts high-fidelity MapleSim models into high-performance, real-time applications, the dSPACE DS1104 R&D Controller Board does not require the MathWorks toolchain.  This enables system modeling, control design and real-time implementation to be carried out in a single software environment at less cost, according to Maplesoft.

Engineers can help ensure fast execution without loss of model fidelity by taking advantage of code generation in MapleSim.  MapleSim is a physical modeling and simulation tool built on a foundation of symbolic computation technology.  It handles the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering models, including multi-domain systems, plant modeling and control design.  

In addition to the dSPACE DS1104 R&D Controller Board, MapleSim models can also be exported directly to Simulink, LabVIEW and NI VeriStand for real-time implementation in hardware-in-the-loop systems, as well as to stand-alone applications for fast simulations.
