Select to enable increased buffer size during the simulation. This increases the buffer size of all the blocks in the PLL model that belong to the Mixed-Signal Blockset™/Utilities Simulink® library. By default, this option is deselected.

Buffer size of all the blocks in the PLL model that belong to the Mixed-Signal Blockset/Utilities Simulink library.

Selecting different simulation solver or sampling strategies can change the number of input samples needed to produce an accurate output sample. Set the Buffer size to a large enough value so that the input buffer contains all the input samples required.

This parameter is only available when the Enable increased buffer size option is selected.

Programmatic Use

  • Use get_param(gcb,'NBuffer') to view the current value of Buffer size.

  • Use set_param(gcb,'NBuffer',value) to set Buffer size to a specific value.
