In Simulink® in R2020a, signals and block outputs can now use half-precision as a storage type. The half-precision data type is supported for simulation and code generation for parameters and a subset of blocks.
This feature is under tech preview and should not be used for production code generation. The first time you simulate a model that uses a half-precision data type, the Diagnostic Viewer displays an info message.
Half-precision as a storage type is supported for simulation in Normal and Accelerator modes. It is not supported for Rapid Accelerator mode.
Half-precision is supported for C code generation for
Code generation for
.ert targets requires an Embedded Coder® license.
In Simulink, the half-precision data type only supports real values. Complex values cannot have a half-precision data type.
