Sample- and Frame-Based Concepts

Introduction to real-world sample- and frame-based signals, and how to model those signals in MATLAB® and Simulink®.

Buffering and Frame-Based Processing

Convert signals of frame size 1 into signals of frame size greater than 1, and vice versa.

Convert Sample and Frame Rates in Simulink Using Rate Conversion Blocks

Learn how direct-rate conversion blocks impact the sample rate and frame rate of signals in Simulink models.

Convert Sample and Frame Rates in Simulink Using Frame Rebuffering Blocks

Learn how frame rebuffering blocks impact the sample rate and frame rate of signals in Simulink models.

Delay and Latency

Configure the Simulink environment to minimize delay and increase simulation performance.

Why Does Reading Data from the dsp.AsyncBuffer Object Give a Dimension Mismatch Error in the MATLAB Function Block?

Resolve the dimension mismatch error when you read data from an async buffer inside the MATLAB function block.

Why Does the dsp.AsyncBuffer Object Error When You Call read Before write?

Initialize the async buffer by calling either setup or write before the first call to read.
