15.1. Vector and Complex Type Support

The DSP Builder Primitive libraries provide automatic support for arrays and complex types.

These modes of operation engage with type propagation, and provide a convenient automatic method for generating repeated design elements to operate on all the data elements within vector and complex signals.

Blocks automatically determine whether the data they process is in scalar or vector format and operate accordingly.

Using complex data (where it is supported) automatically causes DSP Builder to generate blocks internally, which processes both real and imaginary data elements.

The hardware elements that these processes generate fully incorporate into the optimization schemes available within DSP Builder advanced blockset.

No restrictions on the combination of vector and complex modes exist.
