Detect change in signal value
The Detect Change block determines if an input does not equal its previous value.
The output is true (equal to 1) when the input signal does not equal its previous value.
The output is false (equal to 0) when the input signal equals its previous value.
The Detect Change block accepts signals of the following data types:
For more information, see Data Types Supported by Simulink in the Simulink® documentation.
Set the initial condition for the previous input U/z.
Specify whether the block performs sample- or frame-based processing. You can select one of the following options:
Elements as channels (sample based) — Treat each element of the input as a separate channel (sample-based processing).
Columns as channels (frame based) — Treat each column of the input as a separate channel (frame-based processing).
Note: Frame-based processing requires a DSP System Toolbox™ license.
For more information, see Sample- and Frame-Based Concepts in the DSP System Toolbox documentation.
Inherited — Inherit the processing mode from the input signal and delay the input accordingly. You can identify whether the input signal is sample or frame based by looking at the signal line. Simulink represents sample-based signals with a single line and frame-based signals with a double line.
Use Input processing to specify whether the block performs sample- or frame-based processing. The block accepts frame-based signals for the input u. All other input signals must be sample based.
|Input Signal u||Input Processing Mode||Block Works?|
|Sample based||Sample based||Yes|
|Frame based||No, produces an error|
|Sample based||Frame based||Yes|
For more information about these two processing modes, see Sample- and Frame-Based Concepts in the DSP System Toolbox documentation.
Set the output data type to boolean or uint8.
