IO106 - Start conversion
IO106 - Start conversion —
Start conversion of IO106
Simulink Real-Time - Speedgoat
This driver block together with the Read Channels driver block can be used as an
alternative to the Analog input driver block. It only initiates the conversion of
the analog input channels and does not read and return them. The latter is then
accomplished by using a separate Read Channels driver block. The separation of Start
Conversion and Read Channels is mainly used for situations where more than one IO106
I/O module is present in a target machine and the acquisition of the overall input
channels should be synchronized across the various IO106 I/O modules.
As the execution of this block and the Read Channels block(s) has to be done in a
well-defined (deterministic) manner, these blocks provide special synchronization
(SYNC) input and output ports which can be turned on and off depending on the
block's dialog box settings (see below).
S (SYNC input port)
Start Conversion is executed if the signal value is TRUE, and not
executed otherwise. This port expects a logical (Boolean)-type signal.
Connection to a preceding block ensures that this block is executed
after the preceding block. This port is enabled if the "Show Input
Synchronization Port" box in the block's dialog box is checked.
S (SYNC output port)
If the driver block's SYNC input port is not enabled, the value of
this port is TRUE. Otherwise it takes the value (TRUE or FALSE) entered
at the block's SYNC input port. This port outputs a logical
(Boolean)-type signal. Connection to a subsequent block ensures that
this block is executed before the subsequent block. This port is enabled
if the "Show Output Synchronization Port" box in the block's dialog box
The configuration details are all defined in the Setup block.
This ID defines the link to the corresponding Setup block.
Show Input Synchronization Port
If checked, the block shows an input port to accept a SYNC
Show Output Synchronization Port
If checked, the block shows an output port which provides a SYNC
Defines the base sample time at which this driver block gets its sample hit. This
parameter can also be set to -1 for inherited
sample time. The units are in seconds.
