15.5.2. Channel Out (ChannelOut)

The ChannelOut block delineates the output boundary of a DSP Builder synthesizable Primitive subsystem.

The ChannelOut block passes its input through to the outputs unchanged, with types preserved. This block indicates to DSP Builder that these signals must synchronize, which the synthesis tool can ensure.

When you run a simulation in Simulink, DSP Builder adds additional latency from the balanced pipelining stages to meet the specified timing constraints for your model. The block accounts for this additional latency. This latency does not include any delay explicitly added to your model, by for example a SampleDelay block, just added pipelining for timing closure.

Note: You can also access the value of the latency parameter by typing a command of the following form on the MATLAB command line:
