# Implement Sqrt Block with Control Signals

This example shows how to implement the control-signal based Square root block and use it to generate HDL code.

### Open and Run the Simulink Model

Specify the input data as a linear sweep. You can change these values according to your requirements.

```SQRT_input = fi(1/2^17:1/2^17:1,0,18,17)'; ```

Specify the word length for fixed-point datatypes and the latency for the model. For more information on the latency calculation, see Sqrt.

```WL = 18; latency = 20; ```

Open the `hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control` model and specify a stop time sufficient to process all the input combinations.

```stoptime = length(SQRT_input)-1+latency; open_system('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control') sim('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control') ```

This figure shows the simulation waveform for the model. You can see that `dataOut` output is valid when `validOut` is `1`.

### Validate Simulink Output by Using Reference Output

To validate the output of the Simulink model, compare this output to a reference values. To obtain the reference values, use the `sqrt` function. Compute the reference output by using the `sqrt` function.

```ref_SQRT = sqrt(double(SQRT_input)); ```

Use logical indexing to extract valid output.

```implementation_SQRT = simulink_SQRT(valid_output); ```

Plot the comparison results by using the `comparison_plot_sqrt` function. The maximum error value is significantly smaller than the output of the model.

```comparison_plot_sqrt(ref_SQRT,implementation_SQRT,1,'SQRT linear input'); ```
```Maximum Error SQRT linear input 3.814697e-06 Maximum PctError SQRT linear input 3.803159e-02 ```

### Generate HDL Code for Square Root Implementation

Check the HDL settings saved of the model by using the `hdlsaveparams` function.

```hdlsaveparams('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control') ```
```%% Set Model 'hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control' HDL parameters hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'Backannotation', 'on'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'HDLSubsystem', 'hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'ResetType', 'Synchronous'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'ResourceReport', 'on'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'SynthesisTool', 'Xilinx Vivado'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'SynthesisToolChipFamily', 'Virtex7'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'SynthesisToolDeviceName', 'xc7v2000t'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'SynthesisToolPackageName', 'fhg1761'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'SynthesisToolSpeedValue', '-2'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'TargetDirectory', 'hdl_prj\hdlsrc'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'TargetFrequency', 500); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control', 'Traceability', 'on'); % Set SubSystem HDL parameters hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt', 'FlattenHierarchy', 'on'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt/LumpLatency', 'Architecture', 'MATLAB Datapath'); % Set SubSystem HDL parameters hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt/LumpLatency', 'FlattenHierarchy', 'on'); % Set Sqrt HDL parameters hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt/Sqrt', 'LatencyStrategy', 'Max'); hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt/ValidLine', 'Architecture', 'MATLAB Datapath'); % Set SubSystem HDL parameters hdlset_param('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt/ValidLine', 'FlattenHierarchy', 'on'); ```

To generate HDL code for the Sqrt block in the model, use the `makehdl` function.

``` makehdl('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control/Sqrt') close_system('hdlcoder_sqrt_bitset_control') close all; ```
