MathWorks’ MATLAB and Simulink integration on the latest Vortex OpenSplice v6.8.1

OpenSplice 6.8.1.pngPrismTech is pleased to announce the availability of Vortex OpenSplice version 6.8.1. with Mathworks’ MATLAB and Simulink integration as major enhancements, such as:

  • The generation of MATLAB classes from existing IDL including support for IDL sequences and bounded strings
  • The Simulink integration now supports wait conditions on both read (wait for regular and historical data availability) and write (wait for matching subscribers). In addition, IDL sequences are now also supported for Simulink
  • The Vortex DDS ‘block set’ now also supports Simulink Coder, allowing users with a Simulink Coder license (as available from MathWorks) to generate C/C++-code from their Simulink models. This code can then be deployed as a regular Vortex OpenSplice DDS application on supported target platforms.

As of version 6.8, Vortex™ OpenSplice™ provides OMG DDS-based integration with MathWorks’ MATLAB® and Simulink® products. MATLAB classes as well as Simulink BUS definitions are automatically mapped to their corresponding Topic definitions in DDS.

To ensure type agreement between DDS and MATLAB/Simulink applications, MATLAB classes and Simulink blocks can be exported to the IDL format that is well-known for DDS applications. The integration allows users to create DDS entities in their MATLAB/Simulink model and associate them with desired Quality-of-Services in separate XML files to provide maximum flexibility and control how and when data is exchanged. These capabilities allow users to transparently share any data between different MATLAB/Simulink applications and/or pure DDS applications no matter where they have been deployed in the network.

The Vortex OpenSplice v6.8.1 software is now available for evaluation download from PrismTech’s website at: http://www.prismtech.com/vortex/software-downloads

Vortex 2.0 is now available to download

PrismTech is pleased to announce that Vortex 2.0, a major upgrade of its award winning Intelligent Data-Sharing Platform is now generally available for evaluation and purchase. The Vortex platform provides the most comprehensive Industrial IoT solution for integrating devices, real-time high performance edge-based Fog networks and Cloud systems.

Vortex 2.0 delivers significant benefits in terms of support for Fog computing, improved robustness, security, platform support and ease of use. Vortex 2.0 includes the following new functionality:

  • Vortex OpenSplice 6.6 – includes new features such as Google Protocol Buffer (GPB) support, latest ISO C++ API, dynamic network partitions, Durability Service optimizations, coherent updates – full PresentationQoSPolicy support,  RnR Service – split file recording and Python scripting support for OpenSplice Tester
  • Vortex Fog 1.x – a new addition to the platform providing secure interest based routing of real-time information between UDP (multicast and unicast) enabled edge networks and TCP endpoints, enabling Device-Fog, Fog-Fog and Fog-Cloud connectivity
  • Vortex Cloud 1.3 – includes new Boundary Security solution
  • Vortex Lite 2.0 – latest ISO C++ API, enhanced Durability QoS, support for Windows 10, Mac OS X10.1
  • Vortex Insight 1.2 – usability improvements

Vortex is ideally suited for mission-critical distributed and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. It is based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-time Systems open standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for Internet scale real-time data sharing. Vortex is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS); for IIoT systems Vortex delivers the right information to the right place at the right time.

PrismTech announces Vortex v1.2, the latest version of its award-winning intelligent data-sharing platform for the Internet of Things

Includes significant new functionality, with improved robustness, performance, scalability and ease of use

PrismTech™ announced the general availability of Vortex™ v1.2, the latest version of its award-winning intelligent data-sharing platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).  The Vortex platform provides the most comprehensive real-time data sharing solution for integrating device (sensors to servers), web, mobile and cloud environments.

Vortex is ideally suited for mission-critical distributed and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.  It is based on the Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-time Systems open standard and builds on proven technologies to provide an efficient solution for device-to-device, device-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud Internet scale, real-time data sharing.  Vortex is a crucial enabler for systems that have to reliably and securely deliver high volumes of data with stringent end-to-end qualities-of-service (QoS); hence its suitability for delivering the right information to the right place at the right time.

Vortex v1.2 delivers significant benefits in terms of improved robustness, performance, scalability and ease of use.  It also includes the following new functionality:

  • Vortex OpenSplice™ 6.5 – support for the latest Java 5 PSM, a Streams API for ISO C++ and an overall performance improvement.
  • Vortex Cloud 1.2 – selective routing that allows users to control exactly what Topic data is shared across the Cloud and between LANs.
  • Vortex Insight 1.1 – support for system browser sorting / filtering and inclusion of a new Vortex Cloud instance browser.
  • Vortex Lite 1.0 – new low footprint DDS implementation targeting resource constrained embedded devices.

“Vortex is proving to be a key enabler for the Internet of Things,” said Angelo Corsaro, CTO, PrismTech.  “These latest enhancements help ensure that Vortex continues to be the most comprehensive data sharing platform in the industry.”
