d = randn(64,1);
s = sum(abs(d))

what about the interval?

There are a couple options available:
  • You could chain a series of 64 unit delays together and run a branched signal off of each one into a summation block.
  • You could use MATLAB function block ("Embedded MATLAB" in older releases) and have something in the body like:
function y = avg64( u )
persistent x;
if( isemtpy( x ) == true )
x = zeros( 64, 1 );
x = [ abs(u), x( 2 : end ) ];
y = x;
  • I believe that the communication blockset has some buffer blocks that will accumulate a rolling set of samples, which you could then feed to a sum block.
  • There is probably a way to write this as a transfer function too.
