Split

Split a network buffer chain

Library

Simulink® Real-Time™ Library for Ethernet

Description

To separate a linked list of buffer pointers into separate individual pointers, use the Split block.

Block Parameters

Number of outputs

Enter the number of pointers the input linked list should be separated into.

  • If the number of buffers is the same as this value, this block splits them and outputs them in the order they appear in the vector, or in reverse order (depending on the setting of the Split in reverse order parameter).

  • If the number of buffers is less than Number of outputs, the block outputs zeros (0s) for the extra output ports.

  • If the number of buffers is greater than Number of outputs, the block either deletes the extra buffers, or chains the remaining buffers together (depending on the setting of the Allow chaining for last signal parameter).

Split in reverse order

Select this check box to split out the network buffers in the reverse order in which they are received.

Allow chaining for last signal

Select this check box to chain together remaining network buffers. There might be remaining buffers if the incoming linked list contains more buffers than the number in Number of outputs.

Clear this check box to delete the remaining buffers.
