VisSim is Now Altair Embed!


Thank you for your interest in VisSim Embedded, the industry leading visual environment for model based development of embedded systems

VisSim Embedded's parent company, Visual Solutions, has recently been acquired by Altair and its products have been rebranded as Altair Embed as a part of Altair's new Model Based Development Suite. This is an exciting time for the product as development will continue with an even larger team of developers all with the common goal of creating and improving an already world-class product. 

“Partnering with Altair will bring current and future VisSim users many benefits, including integration with a world-class engineering organization and software portfolio,” noted Peter Darnell, Vice President of Software Development for Altair Embed and previous President and Owner of Visual Solutions. “Moreover, Altair’s steadfast commitment to elite customer service and technical support mirrors our own and bodes well for the future.”
