Bit Packing

Construct data frames

  • Bit Packing block

Simulink Real-Time / Utilities


The Bit Packing block constructs data frames. Its output port is typically connected to an input port of a Send block or Digital Output block. The block has one output port. This port can be a vector of arbitrary size. It represents the data frame entity constructed by the signals entering the block at its input ports. The number of input ports depends on the setting in the block dialog box.

Specify bit patterns. The data type entered in the control must be a MATLAB® cell array vector. The number of elements in the cell array define the number of input ports shown by this block instance. The cell array elements must be of type double array and define the position of each bit of the incoming value (data typed input port) in the outgoing double value (data frame). From a data type perspective (input ports), the block behaves like a Simulink® Sink block. The data types of the input ports are inherited from the driving blocks.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: BitPatterns

From the list, select an output port (packed) data type.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: PackDataType

Specify the dimensions the output port (packed). Enter this value as a vector. Specify the size of the port by using a format compatible with the MATLAB size command.

Programmatic Use

Block Parameter: PackDataSize
