    Generates the step function for any real number.

    connector_pane_image
    datatype_icon

    x

    A real number.

    datatype_icon

    error in

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

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    step(x)

    Value of the step function for the given value of x.

    datatype_icon

    error out

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

    Algorithm for Calculating the Step Function

    The following equation defines the step function.

    step ( x ) = { 0 if x < 0 1 elsewhere

    The following illustration shows the graph for step(x) + spike(x) in the interval (-4.0, 4.0).

    Where This Node Can Run:

    Desktop OS: Windows

    FPGA: Not supported
