Tools within Fallbrook's NuVinci Software Suite have been successfully utilized for a number of years by Fallbrook employees and licensees in designing and refining traction transmission drives incorporating NuVinci CVP technology. Fallbrook is now – for the first time ever – making some of these tools available for other companies to assess how NuVinci CVP technology might work within their own applications. NuVinciCore is a new product from the NuVinci Software Suite that is designed to provide dynamic system modeling capabilities. It was introduced in a beta version on
Simulink is a block diagram environment for multidomain simulation and Model-Based Design. It supports simulation, automatic code generation, and continuous test and verification of embedded systems.

The NuVinci technology is Transforming Gears into Spheres™ by using a set of rotating balls between the input and output components of a transmission. Tilting the balls changes their contact diameters and varies the speed ratio. NuVinci CVP technology can be configured to replace multiple planetary gears, providing significant efficiency or performance improvement in a compact package. The NuVinci technology offers companies the flexibility to design and produce next-generation products that are better tailored to their unique business, market, and competitive requirements. Major automotive transmission suppliers have licensed NuVinci technology for the development of automotive class drivetrains, and a market-leading supplier has licensed the technology and is developing NuVinci CVP transmissions for electric and gasoline light vehicle applications.
The first commercial products incorporating the technology are the currently available NuVinci N360™ bicycle transmission and the NuVinci Harmony™ auto shifting system for bicycles, which includes the N360. Fallbrook has built an extensive portfolio of over 600 patents and patent applications worldwide. For more information, visit http://www.fallbrooktech.com.
