Reactis Beta Supports Fixed-Point Data Types in Simulink

Falls Church, VA (March 22, 2005) -- Reactive Systems, Inc. (RSI) announced the V2004.3.1 release of its Reactis® testing and validation package today. The beta version includes much anticipated support for fixed-point data types in Simulink. The precursor to the upcoming V2005 release also includes a number of other new features and enhancements implemented since the previous major release in December of 2004. Some highlights include support for MathWorks Release 14.2, support for more Release 14 blocks, improved S-Function handling, and performance improvements.

"Fixed-point support has been one of the most requested features from existing and prospective customers" noted RSI Chief Technology Officer Steve Sims. He went on to state that "we are very excited to offer the testing and validation benefits of Reactis to a large new audience." Sims also noted that the new version of Reactis gives engineers an easy way to compare different versions of a model when one version uses floating-point and the other uses fixed-point.

Beta support for fixed-point data types in Stateflow is due out in a few weeks. The V2005 release is scheduled for May and will include support for fixed-point data types in both the Simulink and Stateflow portions of models.

RSI is a privately held company headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia. The company's testing and validation products help customers in the automotive and aerospace industries produce higher quality software more quickly.
