Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

The Wolfram Solution for Electrical Engineering

Perform sophisticated image and signal processing, design and analyze control systems, and create interactive models–all in one system, with one integrated workflow.

Underlying the Wolfram electrical engineering solution are advanced random processes including Markov chains and queueing processes, industrial-strength Boolean computation, and high-performance dense and sparse linear algebra algorithms, all combined with the reliability of powerful symbolic and numeric computation.

  • The Wolfram Edge
  • How Wolfram Compares
  • Key Capabilities

Wolfram technologies include thousands of built-in functions that let you:

  • Instantly design and analyze digital and analog filters »
  • Apply filters and signal analysis to audio, image, or other data
  • Automatically create PID controllers to meet your design criteria
  • Perform advanced 2D and 3D volumetric image processing
  • Model electrical power distribution systems
  • Design and simulate human interface devices and electronic systems with mechanical subassemblies and control units
  • Analyze communication systems using continuous-time frequency domain analysis techniques
  • Analyze antenna radiation patterns
  • Simulate filter circuits
  • Design, analyze, and simulate linear and nonlinear control systems
  • Use built-in machine learning capabilities

Does your current tool set have these advantages?

  • Free-form linguistic input produces immediate results without the need for syntax
    Unique to Wolfram technologies
  • Built-in functionality for solving local and global optimization problems, both numeric and symbolic, including constrained nonlinear optimization
    Matlab requires extra-cost toolboxes
  • Automatic, interactive interface construction to visualize your simulations, examine model sensitivity to parameter changes, and more
    Unique to Wolfram technologies
  • Automated precision control and arbitrary-precision numerics produce highly accurate results
    Matlab and other systems that rely on finite-precision numerics can cause serious errors due to lack of precision
  • Symbolic as well as numeric calculations to manipulate numbers, equations, or pieces of code, improving accuracy or creating reusable models
    Matlab's built-in routines only handle numeric calculations
  • Highly optimized superfunctions analyze your equations and automatically select the right algorithms to get accurate results quickly—sometimes switching mid-calculation for further optimization
    Other computation systems make you analyze your equations manually to determine which function to apply—for example, to solve a differential equation in Matlab, you must correctly choose among ode45, ode23, ode113, ode15s, bvp4c, pdepe, and so on, or risk wrong answers
  • Excellent speeds for many different types of computations, including dense and sparse linear algebra operations
    Matlab is significantly slower for many of these operations
