Prepare System for Conversion

Automatically check model against fixed-point guidelines, manage unsupported blocks

Using the Fixed-Point Tool, you can prepare a model for conversion from a floating-point model or subsystem to an equivalent fixed-point representation. During the preparation stage of the conversion, the Fixed-Point Tool checks the system under design for compatibility with the conversion process and reports any issues found in the model.
