What’s New in MATLAB R2021a?

MATLAB R2021a delivers new features in MATLAB and Simulink, three new products, and updates to all other products.  

New products include:  

  • DDS Blockset – design and simulate DDS applications 
  • Radar Toolbox – design, simulate, and test multifunction radar systems 
  • Satellite Communications Toolbox – simulate, analyze, and test satellite communications systems and links. 

Major product updates are: 

  • Aerospace Toolbox - define aircraft configuration and dynamics for stability and control analyses, and design and analyze scenarios of satellites and ground stations 
  • Antenna Toolbox - estimate efficiency and losses in metal antennas with finite conductivity and thickness using a catalog of materials, e.g., copper, tin, and gold 
  • Audio Toolbox – use AI-powered single-line signal analytics for audio, speech, and acoustics with underlying pre-trained deep networks and machine learning models 
  • Datafeed Toolbox - connect to Bloomberg using C++ interfaces and leverage Trading Toolbox functionality merged into Datafeed Toolbox
  • Navigation Toolbox - implement multisensor and landmark SLAM; simulate GNSS sensors with improved accuracy 
  • Reinforcement Learning Toolbox - create, train, and simulate reinforcement learning agents interactively with Reinforcement Learning Designer app 
  • Vehicle Network Toolbox - decode and visualize CAN FD and CAN bus traffic with the CAN FD Explorer and CAN Explorer apps
