Variable-Size Signal Support DSP System Objects

Several DSP System Toolbox™ System objects support variable-size input signals. In these System objects, you can change the frame size (number of rows) of the input matrix even when the object is locked. The number of channels (number of columns) of the input matrix must remain constant. The System object™ locks when you call the object to run its algorithm.

Variable-Size Signal Support Example

Create a dsp.FIRHalfbandDecimator System object™. The input signal contains 10 channels, with 1000 samples in each channel.

FIRHalfband = dsp.FIRHalfbandDecimator;
input = randn(1000,10);

Lock the object by running the algorithm.

ans = logical

Change the frame size of the input to 800 without releasing the object.

input = randn(800,10);

The System object runs without error.
