Recently, MathWorks introduced Release 2021b of the MATLAB and Simulink product families. Release 2021b (R2021b) offers two new products — RF PCB Toolbox and Signal Integrity Toolbox — along with five major updates. New capabilities in MATLAB include code refactoring and block editing, as well as the ability to run Python commands and scripts from MATLAB. Simulink updates enable users to run multiple simulations for different scenarios from the Simulink Editor and to create custom tabs in the Simulink Toolstrip. 

R2021b also introduces new products supporting wireless communications: 

  • RF PCB Toolbox enables the design, analysis, and visualization of high-speed and RF multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs). 
  • Signal Integrity Toolbox provides functions and apps for designing high-speed serial and parallel links. 

In addition to the new products, R2021b includes major updates to Symbolic Math Toolbox, Lidar Toolbox, and Simulink Control Design, and other products in the areas of Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Predictive Maintenance, and Statistics and Machine Learning.
