Computes the dot product of two vectors of real or complex numbers.

x

Input values. You can pass scalar values point-by-point or pass all values at once in a fixed-size array.

datatype_icon

y

Input values. You can pass scalar values point-by-point or pass all values at once in a fixed-size array.

datatype_icon

input valid

A Boolean that describes whether the next data point has arrived for processing. Wire the output valid output of an upstream node to this input to transfer data from the upstream node to this node.

TRUE The next data point has arrived for processing.
FALSE The next data point has not arrived for processing.
datatype_icon

ready for output

A Boolean that defines whether downstream nodes are ready for this node to return a new value. Use a Feedback Node to wire the ready for input output of a downstream node to this input of the current node.

TRUE Downstream nodes are ready for this node to return a new value.
FALSE Downstream nodes are not ready for this node to return a new value.
Note  

If this terminal is FALSE during a given cycle, the output valid terminal returns FALSE during that cycle.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

dot product

The dot product of X and Y.

datatype_icon

operation overflow

Returns TRUE if the output data type cannot express all values of the result. LabVIEW applies overflow and rounding options according to your configuration of the output data terminal.

datatype_icon

output valid

A Boolean that indicates whether this node has computed a result that downstream nodes can use. Wire this output to the input valid input of a downstream node to transfer data from the node to the downstream node.

TRUE The node has computed a result that downstream nodes can use.
FALSE The node has not computed a result that downstream nodes can use.
datatype_icon

ready for input

A Boolean that determines whether this node is ready to accept new input data. Use a Feedback Node to wire this output to the ready for output input of an upstream node.

TRUE This node is ready to accept new input data.
FALSE This node is not ready to accept new input data.
Note  

If this terminal returns FALSE during a given cycle, LabVIEW discards any data that other nodes send to this node during the following cycle. LabVIEW discards this data even if the input valid terminal is TRUE during the following cycle.
