Adept Scientific and Kane Computing Work Together to Support Embedded Control System Designers

New agreement to benefit users of VisSim/Embedded Controls Developer software

Adept Scientific, distributors of the VisSimTM range of modelling and simulation software, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Kane Computing, experts in DSP-based embedded systems, to support the VisSim/Embedded Controls Developer (VisSim/ECD) product in the United Kingdom. Potential customers will be able to purchase VisSim/ECD directly from Kane Computing, who will provide a comprehensive added-value service including pre- and after-sales support.

VisSim/ECD is a development environment for the rapid prototyping and development of embedded control systems, providing users with the ability to simulate and generate C-code. Based on the well-known VisSim simulation engine, it allows embedded systems to be prototyped in software, offering significant savings in cost, and in design and debug time for fixed-point and floating point targets.

VisSim/ECD supports the Texas Instruments MSP430, F24x, LF240x, F2812, C5510, C6713 and associated development boards from Spectrum Digital and SoftBaugh. Its embedded target support includes automatic C-code generation, compile and link, making it an essential tool for anyone designing embedded DSP systems.

“Kane Computing brings to VisSim/ECD their wide-ranging experience and expertise in DSP/FPGA, Image Processing, Machine Vision, Audio/Video Compression, Video Security and Telecommunications,” said Adept Scientific’s Managing Director, Dr Paul Bragg. “This partnership will benefit both our companies, but also – and more important – it will greatly benefit our customers too.”

Added Richard White, Managing Director of Kane Computing, “We are delighted to be working with Adept Scientific. We are the UK distributors for Spectrum Digital and Softbaugh DSP hardware and an authorised Texas Instruments Third Party Reseller and this new relationship enables developers to purchase everything they need for their projects and get support from one local source”.

Kane Computing (Northwich, Cheshire) is the UK’s primary source of fully supported development tools for Texas Instruments DSPs, with an excellent reputation for both technical expertise and customer service.

VisSim and VisSim/ECD is developed by Visual Solutions (Groton, Massuchusetts), a pioneer in the development of Windows-based software for the modelling and simulation of dynamic systems. VisSim products are used by major companies worldwide to model, simulate and embed control, communication and signal processing systems.

Fantastic tips and tricks. Brilliant presenter and delivery

Origin lets you zoom in on an an area of the plot easily without having to rescale manually. I also love the data reader feature where you can follow a line or curve and view the exact coordinate values. Thanks for an awesome product!

I have to thank you again for your help. The support level you have given gives me good confidence in using the product, knowing that there are solutions to problems that are not necessarily easy (or economic) for you to implement, but give the customer a working solution.
