Specifies diagnostic action to take when a fixed-point constant overflow occurs during simulation.
Simulink® software takes no action.
Simulink software displays a warning.
Simulink software terminates the simulation and displays an error message.
This diagnostic applies only to fixed-point constants (net slope and net bias).
Overflow occurs when the Simulink software converts a fixed-point constant to a data type whose range is not large enough to accommodate the ideal value of the constant. The ideal value is either too large or too small to be represented by the data type. For example, suppose that the ideal value is
200and the converted data type is
int8. Overflow occurs in this case because the maximum value that
int8can represent is
Fixed-point constant overflow differs from fixed-point constant precision loss. Precision loss occurs when the ideal fixed-point constant value is within the range of the data type and scaling being used, but cannot be represented exactly.
This parameter requires a Fixed-Point Designer™ license.
