Altair

Model-Based Development Free for Everyone

Model and simulate for better, faster product development

Easily simulate mechanical product aspects with electrical aspects (in 0D, 1D, and 3D) and leverage automatic code-generation for embedded systems - in harmony with Altair's broad and deep portfolio of CAE simulation products and IoT solutions.

Altair Compose™

Math | Data Analysis | Visualization

Altair Compose is an environment for doing calculations, manipulating and visualizing data (including from CAE simulations or test results), programming and debugging scripts useful for repeated computations and process automation.

Altair Activate™

Multi-Disciplinary System Simulation

Altair Activate is an open & flexible tool for rapidly modeling and simulating products as multi-disciplinary systems in the form of 1D models (expressed as signal-based or physical block diagrams), optionally coupled to 3D models.

Altair Embed™

Embedded Systems Development

Altair Embed is a proven tool for developing embedded systems, by automatically generating code from block diagram models and transferring to popular controller hardware. Once you have a working simulation based on a system diagram, automatically generate the associated code for your hardware controller. You can also readily test your design using Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL).

“One of the advantages of Altair Embed is that you are not directly coding in C.

You are employing a diagram and using the automatic code generator to create the code.”
