Control Data Types with the Data Type Duplicate Block
This example shows how to control data types in your model using the Data Type Duplicate block. In this model, the data type of the Constant block (currently
single) drives the data types throughout the model.
The Constant1 block has its Output data type parameter set to
Inherit: Inherit via back propagation. Because the Constant1 and Constant blocks are both connected to the Data Type Duplicate block, the Constant1 block can inherit its data type from the Constant block. The Sum block has its Output data type set to
Inherit: Same as first input, so it is also able to inherit its data type from the Constant block.
If you change the data type of the Constant block from
int32 data type propagates throughout the model.
