# Dead Zone (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 12, 2018

Implements a dead zone function by providing a region of zero output.

## input

Input signal.

This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

## start of dead zone

Low end of the dead zone.

This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

Default: 0

## end of dead zone

High end of the dead zone.

This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

Default: 0

## output

Output signal.

This output can return a double-precision, floating-point number or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

## Algorithm Definition for the Dead Zone Function

The following equation defines the dead zone function.

$y=\left\{\begin{array}{c}0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{if}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}s\le u\le e\\ u-s\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{if}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}ue\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\end{array}$

where

• u is the input signal
• y is the output signal
• s is the low end of the dead zone
• e is the high end of the dead zone
