Optimize data types of a system

## Description

## Examples

### Optimize Fixed-Point Data Types

This example shows how to optimize the data types used by a system based on specified tolerances.

To begin, open the system for which you want to optimize the data types.

model = 'ex_auto_gain_controller'; sud = 'ex_auto_gain_controller/sud'; open_system(model)

Create an `fxpOptimizationOptions`

object to define constraints and tolerances to meet your design goals. Set the `UseParallel`

property of the `fxpOptimizationOptions`

object to `true`

to run iterations of the optimization in parallel. You can also specify word lengths to allow in your design through the `AllowableWordLengths`

property.

opt = fxpOptimizationOptions('AllowableWordLengths', 10:24, 'UseParallel', true)

opt = fxpOptimizationOptions with properties: MaxIterations: 50 MaxTime: 600 Patience: 10 Verbosity: High AllowableWordLengths: [10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24] UseParallel: 1 Advanced Options AdvancedOptions: [1×1 struct]

Use the `addTolerance`

method to define tolerances for the differences between the original behavior of the system, and the behavior using the optimized fixed-point data types.

tol = 10e-2; addTolerance(opt, [model '/output_signal'], 1, 'AbsTol', tol);

Use the `fxpopt`

function to run the optimization. The software analyzes ranges of objects in your system under design and the constraints specified in the `fxpOptimizationOptions`

object to apply heterogeneous data types to your system while minimizing total bit width.

result = fxpopt(model, sud, opt);

Use the `explore`

method of the `OptimizationResult`

object, `result`

, to launch Simulation Data Inspector and explore the design containing the smallest total number of bits while maintaining the numeric tolerances specified in the `opt`

object.

explore(result);

You can revert your model back to its original state using the `revert`

method of the `OptimizationResult`

object.

revert(result);

## Input Arguments
