System objects that support fixed-point data processing have fixed-point properties. When you
display the properties of a System
object™, click `show all properties`

at the end of the
property list to display the fixed-point properties for that object. You can also
display the fixed-point properties for a particular object by typing
`dsp.<ObjectName>.helpFixedPoint`

at the MATLAB^{®} command line.

Several properties affect the fixed-point data processing used by a System object. Objects perform fixed-point processing and use the current fixed-point property settings when they receive fixed-point input.

You change the values of fixed-point properties in the same way as you change any System
object property value. See Configure Components (MATLAB). You also use the Fixed-Point
Designer™
`numerictype`

object to specify the
desired data type as fixed-point, the signedness, and the word- and
fraction-lengths. System objects support these values of
`DataTypeMode`

: `Boolean`

,
`Double`

, `Single`

, and ```
Fixed-point:
binary point scaling
```

.

In the same way as for blocks, the data type properties of many
System objects can set the appropriate word lengths and scalings automatically
by using full precision. System objects assume that the target specified
on the Configuration Parameters Hardware Implementation target is `ASIC/FPGA`

.

If you have not set the property that activates a dependent property and you attempt to change
that dependent property, a warning message displays. For example, for the
`dsp.FFT`

object, before you set
`CustomOutputDataType`

to
`numerictype(1,32,30)`

, set
`OutputDataType`

to `'Custom'`

.

System objects do not support fixed-point word lengths greater than 128 bits.

For any System object provided in the Toolbox, the fimath settings for any fimath attached to a fi input or a fi property are ignored. Outputs from a System object never have an attached fimath.

`FullPrecisionOverride`

is a convenience
property that, when you set to `true`

, automatically
sets the appropriate properties for an object to use full-precision
to process fixed-point input. For System objects, full precision,
fixed-point operation refers to growing just enough additional bits
to compute the ideal full precision result. This operation has no
minimum or maximum range overflow nor any precision loss due to rounding
or underflow. It is also independent of any hardware-specific settings.
The data types chosen are based only on known data type ranges and
not on actual numeric values. Full precision for System objects does
not optimize coefficient values.

When you set the `FullPrecisionOverride`

property
to `true`

, the other fixed-point properties it controls
no longer apply and any of their non-default values are ignored. These
properties are also hidden. To specify individual fixed-point properties,
first set `FullPrecisionOverride`

to `false`

.
