Square Function (G Dataflow)

    Last Modified: January 9, 2017

    Generates the square function for any real number.



    A real number.


    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Default: No error



    The value of the square function for the given value of x.


    error out

    Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Algorithm for Calculating the Square Function

    The following equation defines the square function.

    square ( x ) = { 1 if 2 n x 2 n + 1 0 elsewhere
    where n is an integer.

    The following illustration shows the graph for square(x) * square(x - 0.8) in the interval (-4.0, 4.0).

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
