The industry standard software for engineering calculations
Mathcad is the world leading mathematical calculation tool since the last 20 years. Mathcad is now used by more than 2 million engineers and 2000 universities across the world, to perform mathematical calculations, document and share the information with others.
Mathcad drives innovation and offers significant personal and process productivity advantages for product development and engineering design projects. Unlike proprietary calculating tools and spreadsheets, Mathcad lets engineers design and document engineering calculations simultaneously with comprehensive applied math functionality and dynamic, unit-aware calculations.
Mathcads unique whiteboard interface uses mathematical expressions, so that you calculations look axactly the same as the formulas in your reference handbooks. Mathcad intergrates mathematical expressions, text and graphics in the same document. All necessary elements in your construction is linked together, and available for all.

Below are some of the news in Mathcad Prime 3.0:
In Mathcad Prime 3.0 you now have the possibility to create templates. This enables you to get an uniform look for all documents you make in a fast and simple way.
Math in text
You can now write math within text regions so that you seamlessly integrate you text and the math expression you wish to explain.
Now you can edit you equations and calculations choose the font, the size, the color and if you wish to highlight. Everything you need to really emphasize what you think is important.
Copy/Paste a Region to External Programs
In Mathcad you can now mark and copy a region and then easily paste into an external program such as Word.
Some other news are:
- The possibility to create custom functions by programing DLLs
- The possiblity to assign global variabels
- Updated numerical functions such as LU, QR and Cholesky
There is many more news in Mathcad Prime 3.0, to explore all those the easiest thing to do is to download a demo of Mathcad or go to http://www.ptc.com/product/mathcad/.
Mathcad Prime 3.1 and Mathcad 15 are sold as a kit.

There are a big number of additional add-ons and libraries to choose between.
Data Analysis Extension Pack
Engineers' time is valuable and limited. They must produce more efficiently and with better quality. And they must meet their individual, departmental and organizational goals of reducing errors, improving collaboration among peers and speeding up time-to-market cycles. The Data Analysis Extension Pack solidifies those objectives because it allows engineers to easily import, manipulate and analyze data in Mathcad Enterprise.
Wavelets Extension Pack
The Wavelets Extension Pack lets you take a new approach to signal and image analysis, time series analysis, statistical signal estimation, data compression analysis and special numerical methods.
Image Processing Extension Pack
The Image Processing Extension Pack, coupled with Mathcad, provides a powerful solution for iterative exploration and investigative analysis. With its extensive image processing, analysis and visualization capabilities, this Extension Pack is ideal for research scientists and engineers, design engineers, system analysts and image specialists working on imaging applications across many industries.
Signal Processing Extension Pack
With its extensive signal processing, analysis and visualization capabilities, the Signal Processing Extension Pack is ideal for electrical design, DSP, audio, recording and research engineers, as well as other engineers and scientists involved in a broad range of signal processing applications.
All license files issued after the release of Prime 3.0 will be encoded to activate Prime 3.0, 15.0 and 14.0. For customers that choose to install both Prime 3.0 and 15.0 on the same computer, the same license file can be used to activate both versions. The two applications can then be run simultaneously for worksheet comparison. If you are on a floating license running both Prime 3.0 and 15 at the same time will allocate two licenses.
