Maplesoft™ today announced a product upgrade that extends connectivity to key hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) products from National Instruments™ (NI). In addition to connectivity to NI LabVIEW™, this updated MapleSim add-on also lets users connect to the new NI VeriStand™ product. NI VeriStand™ is a ready-to-use software environment for configuring real-time testing applications, including HIL test systems. The MapleSim Connector for LabVIEW™ and NI VeriStand™ software integrates MapleSim's rich modeling environment into the popular LabVIEW™ and NI VeriStand™ real-time platforms. Engineers using LabVIEW™ or NI VeriStand™ can quickly develop and optimize complex engineering system models in the intuitive visual modeling environment of MapleSim.
-Complex engineering system models can be developed and optimized rapidly in the intuitive visual modeling environment of MapleSim.
-High-performance, high-fidelity MapleSim models are automatically converted to user-code blocks for easy inclusion in LabVIEW™ VIs and NI VeriStand™ applications.
-Model code is fully optimized for high-speed real-time simulation, allowing users to get the performance needed for HIL testing without sacrificing fidelity.
“Through this collaboration, HIL testing and simulation will become faster and more convenient for our users,” said Chris Washington, Real-Time Testing Product Manager at National Instruments. “MapleSim’s high performance, coupled with the connector product’s ability to provide real-time simulation, will provide NI customers with powerful and efficient tools to address complex engineering processes.”
