In Simulink, you can design control models for your automotive applications including powertrain systems. One key aspect of the powertrain system design is the use of Lookup tables that are also used for calibrating the system for specific requirements such as emissions or fuel consumption etc. In some cases the lookup tables can constitute a large part of your design.
The Lookup Table Optimization in Fixed-Point Designer
• optimizes the spacing of the breakpoints and the data types of the table data to reduce the memory used by a lookup table.
• Using this feature, you can:
o Optimize an existing Lookup Table block.
o Generate a lookup table from a Math Function block.
o Generate a lookup table from a function or function handle.
The download contains the script you can use to programmatically reduce the memory footprint of all the lookup tables in your Simulink model. The script also provides a tradeoff analysis of the memory reduction vs. the tolerances for the output signal of the lookup tables.
