# Spike Function (G Dataflow)

Generates the spike function for any real number.

A real number.

## spike(x)

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

## Algorithm for Calculating the Spike Function

The following equation defines the spike function:

$\mathrm{spike}\left(x\right)=\left\{\begin{array}{cc}1& \text{if}0\le \text{x}<1\\ 0& \text{elsewhere}\end{array}$

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