Change dimensionality of signal

Math Operations

The Reshape block changes the dimensionality of the input signal
to a dimensionality that you specify, using the block's **Output dimensionality** parameter. For example,
you can use the block to change an N-element vector to a 1-by-N or
N-by-1 matrix signal, and vice versa.

The **Output dimensionality** parameter
lets you select any of the following output options.

Output Dimensionality | Description |
---|---|

1-D array | Converts a multidimensional array to a vector (1-D array) array signal. The output vector consists of the first column of the input matrix followed by the second column, etc. (This option leaves a vector input unchanged.) |

Column vector | Converts a vector, matrix, or multidimensional input signal to a column matrix, i.e., an M-by-1 matrix, where M is the number of elements in the input signal. For matrices, the conversion is done in column-major order. For multidimensional arrays, the conversion is done along the first dimension. |

Row vector | Converts a vector, matrix, or multidimensional input signal to a row matrix, i.e., a 1-by-N matrix where N is the number of elements in the input signal. For matrices, the conversion is done in column-major order. For multidimensional arrays, the conversion is done along the first dimension. |

Customize | Converts the input signal to an output signal whose dimensions
you specify, using the |

Derive from reference input port | Creates a second input port, Ref, on the block. Derives
the dimensions of the output signal from the dimensions of the signal
input to the Ref input port. Selecting this option disables the |

The Reshape block accepts and outputs signals of any data type
that Simulink^{®} supports, including fixed-point, enumerated, and
nonvirtual bus data types.

For more information, see Data Types Supported by Simulink.

You can use an array of buses as an input signal to a Reshape block. For details about defining and using an array of buses, see Combine Buses into an Array of Buses.

**Output dimensionality**Specify the dimensionality of the output signal.

**Output dimensions**Specify a custom output dimensionality. This parameter is available only when you set
