Profile your design to gather and display a table of all convertible floating-point objects and data types in your design in preparation for converting your floating-point design to a fixed-point design.

Before you profile the code you plan to convert, make sure that you have already copied the hierarchy of code you want to convert and added it to the testbench. Refer to Adapting a Testbench for Fixed-Point Conversion for help creating a copy of the code you want to convert and setting up your testbench.

  1. From the diagram of your testbench VI, double-click the copied algorithm node you want to convert and navigate to the diagram.
  2. On the ribbon, click Profile to gather and display data type and conversion information in the Convert to Fixed-Point pane.
After you profile the design, choose a fixed-point conversion strategy.
