National Instruments Enhances MATRIXx Control Design and Simulation Software

National Instruments Enhances MATRIXx Control Design and Simulation Software
Initial Step in Long-Term Development Plan Incorporates Customer Feedback and Future Vision

News Release -- Sept. 16, 2003 -- National Instruments today announced MATRIXx 6.3, the company's first release of the control design and simulation software suite it acquired in January. MATRIXx 6.3 delivers long-awaited updates and enhancements and is the initial step in National Instruments long-term plan for MATRIXx development, service and support based on feedback from the extensive MATRIXx customer base.

"We worked closely with NI to communicate future MATRIXx developments conducive to the continued success of our programs that rely on MATRIXx software, such as our Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) and Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) programs," said David Evans, Boeing manager of aerodynamics and flight controls. "With the operating system updates in MATRIXx 6.3 and our renewed confidence in future MATRIXx development, we will continue to use this software for existing and future projects."

For optimum performance and reliability, MATRIXx 6.3 is built on the solid 6.2 architecture and is both backward and forward compatible. The software now runs under the most recent Windows and Solaris operating systems, Windows 2000/XP/NT and Solaris 9, and features an array of updates and enhancements, including:

· Improved data visualization -- Design engineers now can more effectively plot data on 3D graphs with a new lighting feature in Xmath that clearly defines contours in their product models

· Greater diagram printing control -- Engineers now can print specific portions of their models in SystemBuild, including state diagrams, to improve documentation of the development process with expanded output options and better resolution

· More comprehensive help -- Help documentation now is easier to navigate and access with improved organization and search features

· Enhanced modeling capabilities in SystemBuild -- With improvements to componentization of portions of models, design engineers can organize their system models in a more hierarchical manner while maintaining accurate simulation results

"National Instruments is dedicated to providing MATRIXx customers with a complete solution -- industry-proven, model-based design software tightly connected with real-time hardware to address all aspects of the control design process," said Ray Almgren, NI vice president of product strategy. "We continue to work with existing customers, systems integrators and industry experts to further enhance MATRIXx and expand its use into more applications and industries."

MATRIXx contains differentiated, leading-edge technology in control design, system modeling and automatic code generation. Companies including Boeing, Volvo, NASA and Lockheed Martin use MATRIXx for applications such as developing aerospace flight controllers and simulators and building automotive engine and brake control systems.
