THE MATHWORKS TO SUPPORT DIGITAL EQUIPMENT CORP.'S ALPHA AXP PLATFORM;

THE MATHWORKS TO OFFER FULL SUITE OF PRODUCTS ON DIGITAL'S PLATFORM
 NATICK, Mass., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The MathWorks, Inc. today announced its plans to port its complete family of products which includes MATLAB(R) Version 4.0, SIMULINK(tm), for dynamic system simulation, the newly announced SIMULINK C Code Generator, and its comprehensive family of MATLAB Application Toolboxes, to Digital Equipment's 64-bit RISC computing architecture, the Alpha AXP platform.
 John N. Little, the MathWorks' president and chief executive officer, said, "MATLAB is already considered to be the fastest, most accurate and most useful interactive environment for doing numeric computation. By making all of our products available on Digital's Alpha AXP platform, we will bring to our customer base a new level of power and performance for doing serious analysis, design, simulation and modeling."
 This powerful combination of hardware and software will greatly expand the usefulness of scientific visualization by giving scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and other technical professionals the ability to quickly visualize and explore data and mathematical models as part of their everyday work. It will also allow users to prototype, analyze and optimize engineering system designs and algorithms, and to explore new concepts in scientific research enabling them to create mathematical models, solve systems of equations and perform general engineering and scientific computations. All of this can be accomplished without leaving the MATLAB environment and while taking advantage of the Alpha AXP's 64-bit processing power.
 MATLAB merges the industry's most powerful and accurate numeric computation software with an easy-to-use fourth-generation programming language, outstanding graphics and visualization capabilities and an extensive family of MATLAB application-specific toolboxes. Toolboxes are comprehensive sets of MATLAB functions for applications such as neutral networks, signal processing, control system design and analysis, system identification and optimization. The toolboxes are created by world-class experts in their respective fields and represent theory and algorithms at the cutting edge of scientific and engineering research.
 SIMULINK is built on MATLAB, offering users immediate access to MATLAB's comprehensive functionality. It gives engineers a powerful graphical environment for modeling and analyzing dynamic systems, including linear, nonlinear, continuous, discrete and hybrid models.
 With SIMULINK, users employ familiar point-and-click techniques to build models using their choice of block diagrams and equations. With SIMULINK's open-system design, users can create and customize blocks and incorporate their own C, Fortran and MATLAB routines into their models. Users can also conduct live simulations, displaying results during the process, as well as change system parameters and see the effects immediately. The new SIMULINK C Code Generator enables automatic development of C code for real-time implementation across multiple platforms with a price-performance ratio dramatically better than previously available methods. Availability, Configuration
 The MathWorks' product line will ship on Digital's Alpha AXP platform in the second quarter of 1993. The MathWorks, Inc., based in Natick, Mass., develops, markets and supports high-performance software for interactive numeric computation, visualization, and dynamic system simulation. The MathWorks' products are used worldwide by more than 100,000 users at leading commercial and government research laboratories and at organizations including Boeing, General Motors, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, E.I. DuPont and Motorola, as well as at hundreds of educational institutions.
