step

System object: comm.RSEncoder
Package: comm

Encode data using a Reed-Solomon encoder

Syntax

Y = step(H,X)

Description

Note

Starting in R2016b, instead of using the step method to perform the operation defined by the System object™, you can call the object with arguments, as if it were a function. For example, y = step(obj,x) and y = obj(x) perform equivalent operations.

Y = step(H,X) encodes the numeric column input data vector, X, and returns the encoded data, Y. The value of the BitInput property determines whether X is a vector of integers or bits with a numeric, logical, or fixed-point data type. The input and output length of the step function equal the values listed in the table in Input and Output Signal Lengths in BCH and RS System Objects.

Note

obj specifies the System object on which to run this step method.

The object performs an initialization the first time the step method is executed. This initialization locks nontunable properties and input specifications. For more information on changing property values, see System Design in MATLAB Using System Objects.
