Y = step(H,X)
Y = step(H,X) quantizes and encodes the input X to Y. Input X can be real or complex, double-, or single-precision values. The uniform encoder chooses the output data type according to the following table.
|Number of Bits||Unsigned Integer||Signed Integer|
|2 to 8||uint8||int8|
|9 to 16||uint16||int16|
|17 to 32||uint32||int32|
The row corresponds to the value of the NumBits property, and the column corresponds to the value of the OutputDataType property.
Note: The object performs an initialization the first time the step method is executed. This initialization locks nontunable properties and input specifications, such as dimensions, complexity, and data type of the input data. If you change a nontunable property or an input specification, the System object™ issues an error. To change nontunable properties or inputs, you must first call the release method to unlock the object.
