Because single precision numbers use 32 bits, they require less memory than double-precision numbers, while still offering many of the benefits of floating-point arithmetic. You can use the Single Precision Converter to automatically convert a system in a Simulink model from double precision to single precision.
The Single Precision Converter makes these changes:
Conversion of user-specified double-precision data types to single-precision data types (applies to block settings, Stateflow® chart settings, signal objects, and bus objects).
Output signals and intermediate settings using inherited data types which compile to double precision change to single-precision data types.
The converter does not change Boolean, built-in integer, or user-specified fixed-point data types. When the conversion is finished, the converter displays a table summarizing the compiled and proposed data types of the objects in the system under design.
