Max and Min (Clock-Driven Logic)

Compares two values and returns the maximum and minimum values.

x

The value to compare. x must be of the same data type as y.

y

The value to compare. y must be of the same data type as x.

max

The larger value.

min

The smaller value.

Behavior with Array and Cluster Inputs

When using Max and Min to compare arrays and clusters, you can select a comparison mode. Note that Max and Min produces a different type of output than other Comparison nodes in each of the two comparison modes. In Compare Elements mode, rather than returning an array or cluster of Boolean values, Max and Min returns an array or cluster of the maximum elements and/or minimum elements. In Compare Aggregates mode, rather than returning a single Boolean value, Max and Min returns the maximum array or cluster and/or minimum array or cluster.

First input array (x) [3,2,3,4] [3,2,3,4]
Second input array (y) [2,3,4,5] [2,3,4,5]
Maximum (max) [3,3,4,5] The node returns an array of the maximum elements from the two input arrays. [3,2,3,4] Because the first elements of the two input arrays are not equal, and because 3>2, the node stops and returns [3,2,3,4] as the maximum array.
Minimum (min) [2,2,3,4] The node returns an array of the minimum elements from the two input arrays. [2,3,4,5] Because the first elements of the two input arrays are not equal, and because 2<3, the node stops and returns [2,3,4,5] as the minimum array.
