Check Dynamic Gap

Check that gap of possibly varying width occurs in range of signal's amplitudes

  • Library:
  • Simulink / Model Verification

    HDL Coder / Model Verification

  • Check Dynamic Gap block

Description

The Check Dynamic Gap block checks that a signal falls outside a range of values at each time step and executes an assertion after comparison. The width of the gap can vary from time step to time step. The u port is the tested input signal. The inputs min and max specify the lower and upper bounds of the gap, respectively. If u falls outside of the gap defined by min and max, the assertion is true (1) and the block does nothing. If not, the block halts the simulation and returns an error message by default.

The input signals can be scalars, vectors, or matrices. All three input signals must be the same data type. The block compares the value of u to the bounds differently depending on the signal.

  • When comparing scalars to vectors or matrices, the block compares the scalar signal to each element of the non-scalar signal.

  • When comparing vectors or matrix signals to other vectors or matrices, the block compares the input to the bounds element-by-element.

  • For models with more than one vector or matrix input signal, the vectors or matrices must have the same dimensions.

Ports

Input

Signal specifying the upper bound of the gap.

Data Types: half | single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | Boolean | fixed point | enumerated

Signal specifying the lower bound of the gap.

Data Types: half | single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | Boolean | fixed point | enumerated

Input signal checked for a gap of width specified by max and min.

Data Types: half | single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64 | Boolean | fixed point | enumerated

Output

expand all

Output signal that is true (1) if the assertion succeeds, and false (0) if the assertion fails. If, in the Configuration Parameters window, in the Math and Data Types section, under Advanced parameters, you select Implement logic signals as Boolean data, then the output data type is Boolean. Otherwise, the data type of the signal is double.

Dependencies

To enable this output port, select the Output assertion signal parameter check box.

Data Types: double | Boolean

Parameters

expand all

Clearing this parameter disables the block and causes the model to behave as if the block does not exist. To enable or disable all verification blocks, regardless of the setting of this option, go to the Configuration Parameters window, click Diagnostics > Data Validity, expand the Advanced parameters section, and set Model Verification block enabling to Enable all or Disable all.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: enabled
Type: character vector
Values: 'on' | 'off'
Default: 'on'

Specify a MATLAB® expression to evaluate when the assertion fails. Because the expression is evaluated in the MATLAB workspace, define all variables used in the expression in that workspace.

Dependencies

To enable this parameter, select the Enable assertion parameter.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: callback
Type: character vector
Values: MATLAB expression
Default: ''

Select this parameter to stop the simulation when the check fails. Clear this parameter to display a warning and continue the simulation.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: stopWhenAssertionFail
Type: character vector
Values: 'on' | 'off'
Default: 'on'

Select this parameter to enable the output port.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: export
Type: character vector
Values: 'on' | 'off'
Default: 'off'

Specify the style of the block icon. The graphic option displays a graphical representation of the assertion condition on the icon. The text option displays a mathematical expression that represents the assertion condition.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: icon
Type: character vector
Values: 'graphic' | 'text'
Default: 'graphic'
