Adoption of a naming convention is recommended. A naming convention provides guidance for naming blocks, signals, parameters, and data types. Naming conventions frequently cover issues such as:

  • Compliance with the programming language and downstream tools

    • Length

    • Use of symbols

  • Readability

    • Use of underscores

    • Use of capitalization

  • Encoding information

    • Use of “meaningful” names

    • Standard abbreviations and acronyms

    • Data type

    • Engineering units

    • Data ownership

    • Memory type

Rationale

  • Readability

  • Workflow

  • Code Generation

  • Simulation
