# Lookup Tables

Lookup table blocks such as Cosine and Sine

## Blocks

 1-D Lookup Table Approximate one-dimensional function 2-D Lookup Table Approximate two-dimensional function Cosine Implement fixed-point sine or cosine wave using lookup table approach that exploits quarter wave symmetry Direct Lookup Table (n-D) Index into N-dimensional table to retrieve element, column, or 2-D matrix Interpolation Using Prelookup Use precalculated index and fraction values to accelerate approximation of N-dimensional function Lookup Table Dynamic Approximate one-dimensional function using dynamic table Prelookup Compute index and fraction for Interpolation Using Prelookup block Sine Implement fixed-point sine or cosine wave using lookup table approach that exploits quarter wave symmetry n-D Lookup Table Approximate N-dimensional function
