Vector Operation Optimization

This example shows how Simulink® Coder™ optimizes generated code by setting block output that generates vectors to scalars, for blocks such as the Mux, Sum, Gain, and Bus. This optimization reduces stack memory by replacing temporary local arrays with local variables.

Example Model

In the model, rtwdemo_VectorOptimization, the output of Gain blocks G1 and G2 are the vector signals tmp1 and tmp2. These vectors have a width of 10.

model = 'rtwdemo_VectorOptimization';
set_param(model, 'SimulationCommand', 'update')

Generate Code

Create a temporary folder (in your system temporary folder) for the build and inspection process.

currentDir = pwd;
[~,cgDir] = rtwdemodir();

Build the model.

### Starting build procedure for model: rtwdemo_VectorOptimization
### Successful completion of build procedure for model: rtwdemo_VectorOptimization

The optimized code is in rtwdemo_VectorOptimization.c. The signals tmp1 and tmp2 are the local variables rtb_tmp1 and rtb_tmp2.

                 rtwdemo_VectorOptimization_DW.X3_DSTATE[i]) - rtb_tmp2) -

    /* Outport: '<Root>/Out2' */

    /* Update for UnitDelay: '<Root>/X3' */

    rtwdemo_VectorOptimization_DW.X2_DSTATE[i] = rtb_tmp1;

    /* Update for UnitDelay: '<Root>/X1' */
    rtwdemo_VectorOptimization_DW.X1_DSTATE[i] = rtb_Sum3;
