dsp.CumulativeProduct System object

Package: dsp

Cumulative product of channel, column, or row elements


The CumulativeProduct object computes the cumulative product of channel, column, or row elements.

To compute the cumulative product of channel, column, or row elements:

  1. Define and set up your cumulative product object. See Construction.

  2. Call step to compute the cumulative product according to the properties of dsp.CumulativeProduct. The behavior of step is specific to each object in the toolbox.


H = dsp.CumulativeProduct returns a cumulative product object, H, that computes the cumulative product of input matrix or input vector elements along the default Dimension.

H = dsp.CumulativeProduct('PropertyName',PropertyValue,...) returns a cumulative product object, H, with each specified property set to the specified value.



Computation dimension for cumulative product

Specify the computation dimension as one of | Channels (running product) | Rows | Columns |. The default is Channels (running product).


Enable resetting cumulative product via input port

Set this property to true to enable resetting the cumulative product. When you set this property to true, specify a reset signal to the step method to reset the cumulative product. You can access this property when the Dimension property is set to Channels (running product). The default is false.


Reset condition for cumulative product

Specify the event on the reset input port that causes resetting the cumulative product to one of | Rising edge | Falling edge | Either edge | Non-zero |. This property applies when you set the ResetInputPort property to true and the Dimension property to Channels (running product). The default is Rising edge.

Compute the cumulative product of a matrix:

 hcprod = dsp.CumulativeProduct;
 x = magic(2);
 y = step(hcprod,x);
 y = step(hcprod,x)


This object implements the algorithm, inputs, and outputs described on the Cumulative Product block reference page. The object properties correspond to the block parameters, except:

The Reset port block parameter corresponds to both the ResetCondition and ResetInputPort object properties.

Introduced in R2012a
