Expresses the input to the next higher round integer.
For example, if the input is 3.1, the result is 4. If the input is -3.1, the result is -3.
An input to this operation.
This input supports scalar numbers, arrays or clusters of numbers, and arrays of clusters of numbers.
Data Type Changes on FPGA
When you add this node to a document targeted to an FPGA, this input has a default data type that uses fewer hardware resources at compile time.
The resulting highest integer, closest to the input.
When x is of the form x = a + bi, that is, when x is complex, the function returns a complex number defined by the next highest integers to the real and imaginary parts of x. The following equation defines rounded number:
ceil(x) = ceil(a) + i ceil(b)
Where This Node Can Run:
Desktop OS: Windows
All devices (only within an optimized FPGA VI)
Web Server: Supported in VIs that run in a web application
