Decide Which Workflow Is Right For Your Application

There are two primary workflows available for converting MATLAB® code to fixed-point code.

  • Manual Workflow

    The manual workflow provides the most control to optimize the fixed-point types, but requires a greater understanding of fixed-point concepts.

    For more information, see Manual Fixed-Point Conversion Best Practices.

  • Automated Workflow

    The Fixed-Point Converter app enables you to convert your MATLAB code to fixed-point code without requiring extensive preexisting knowledge of fixed-point concepts. However, this workflow provides less control over your data types.

    For more information, see Automated Fixed-Point Conversion Best Practices.
