Scaling and Mapping (Scale by Max Absolute Values) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Determines the maximum absolute value of a signal and then scales the signal using the value.

reset

A Boolean that specifies whether to reset the internal state of the node.

 True Resets the internal state of the node. False Does not reset the internal state of the node.

This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to signal.

Default: False

signal

Input signal.

This input accepts the following data types:

• Waveform
• 1D array of waveforms
• Double-precision, floating-point number
• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

sample length

Length of each set of data.

The node performs computation for each set of data. sample length must be greater than zero.

This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to signal.

Default: 100

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

signal / max(|signal|)

Output signal of the same size as the input signal.

This output can return the following data types:

• Waveform
• 1D array of Waveforms
• 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
• 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

max(|signal|)

The maximum absolute value in the input signal.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported

Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
