Stop Simulation

Stop simulation when input is nonzero

HDL Coder / Sinks


The Stop Simulation block stops the simulation when the input is nonzero. The simulation completes the current time step before terminating. If the block input is a vector, any nonzero vector element causes the simulation to stop.

When you use the Stop Simulation block in a For Iterator subsystem, the stop action occurs after execution of all iterations in the subsystem during a time step. The stop action does not interrupt execution until the start of the next time step.

You cannot use the Stop Simulation block to pause the simulation. To create a block that pauses the simulation, see Pause Simulation Using Assertion Blocks.

This example shows how to control when a simulation stops by using a Stop Simulation block with a Relational Operator block. When you simulate the model, the model stops simulation when the simulation time reaches 10.
