This is a short service announcement for all those who have not been able to attend CDNLive EMEA this year. At this conference, we showed how one can establish a bidirectional communication between MATLAB or Octave and the shell interface of ncsim. You can also use this method to communicate from MATLAB or Octave with any other software that has a shell interface. All the details can be found in the presentation slides at https://www.cadence.com/content/dam/cadence-www/global/en_US/documents/company/Events/CDNLive/Secured/Proceedings/EU/2017/MS05.pdf. If you would like to use this approach, just let me know and we will send you everything you need for this.
