14.3.21. Split Scalar (SplitScalar)

The SplitScalar block splits its input (typically an unsigned integer) into a vector of Booleans. The least significant bit of the scalar becomes the first entry in the vector (little-endian ordering).

FFT implementations often contain various bit-twiddling operations as part of their control structure. Use the SplitScalar block to make these bit-twiddling operations easier to implement.

Parameter Description
Width Width of the scalar (in bits), which is also the width of the output vector.
