To Fixed-Point (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: October 2, 2017

    Converts any non-complex number to fixed-point representation.

    If you do not wire a value to the fixed-point type input or configure the output settings of this function, the data type of the fixed-point output adapts to the data you wire to the number input. For example, if you wire an 8-bit unsigned integer to the number input, the program returns an 8-bit unsigned fixed-point number with 8 integer bits. This function saturates the number by default if overflow occurs.

    number

    Any non-complex number.

    datatype_icon

    fixed-point type

    The fixed-point data type to which you want to convert the integer data. The program ignores any data in the constant or control that you wire to fixed-point type.

    datatype_icon

    fixed-point

    Is the input data scaled to the requested fixed-point data type.

    datatype_icon

    overflow

    A Boolean that describes whether the result of the operation is outside the range of values that the output type can represent.

    TRUE Overflow occurred.

    Note  

    For complex numbers, the output is TRUE if either the real or imaginary parts overflow.

    FALSE Overflow did not occur.
