Catalytic announces Catalytic RMS (Rapid MATLAB® Simulator), software for streamlining the algorithm design of signal processing systems eventually implemented in register transfer level (RTL) code. Catalytic RMS is tailored for algorithms targeted to an RTL-based implementation. It works seamlessly with MATLAB to provide fast floating-point simulation for standard MATLAB code, accurate fixed-point modeling capabilities and fast fixed-point simulation. The result is a streamlined algorithm design process that accelerates the simulation of standard MATLAB and assists with the conversion of floating-point MATLAB to optimized fixed-point MATLAB, which models the behavior of the final RTL design. Catalytic RMS is controlled through a feature-rich and customizable graphical user interface (GUI). Algorithms are loaded and can be immediately accelerated.
