The Simulation Interface Toolkit announced by National Instruments links LabView graphical development software with MathWorks' Simulink modeling and simulation environment. It establishes a compatibility that allows design engineers to quickly export the models they develop in Simulink to LabView for validating and testing as real-world prototypes, and then to make necessary changes or improvements to control algorithms. The company says the toolkit will have benefits for many applications, particularly the automotive and aerospace industries, where production times have decreased while demands for faster time to market have increased.
