Check Static Gap

Check that gap exists in signal's range of amplitudes

  • Library:
  • Simulink / Model Verification

    HDL Coder / Model Verification

  • Check Static Gap block

Description

The Check Static Gap block checks that an input signal is less than (or optionally equal to) a static lower bound or greater than (or optionally equal to) a static upper bound at the current time step. The Upper bound and Lower bound parameters define the upper and lower bounds of the gap. The block then executes an assertion after comparison. If the signal falls outside of the gap, 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 signal and bounds can be scalars, vectors, or matrices. The input and the bounds must be the same data type. The block compares the value of the input to the bounds differently depending on the signal.

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

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

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

Ports

Input

expand all

Input signal the block checks if the signal value is less than a static lower bound or greater than a static upper bound.

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

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, set the Output assertion signal parameter check box.

Data Types: double | Boolean

Parameters

expand all

Specify the upper bound on the range of amplitudes that the input signal can have.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: max
Type: character vector
Values: scalar | vector | matrix
Default: '0'

Select this check box to make the range of valid input amplitudes include the upper bound.

Programmatic Use

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

Specify the lower bound on the range of amplitudes that the input signal can have.

Programmatic Use

Parameter: min
Type: character vector
Values: scalar | vector | matrix
Default: '0'

Select this check box to make the range of valid input amplitudes include the lower bound.

Programmatic Use

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

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'
