Delay signal one sample period, with external initial condition
The Unit Delay External IC block is not recommended. This block was removed from the Discrete library in R2016b. In new models, use the Delay block (with parameters set appropriately). Existing models that contain the Unit Delay External IC block continue to work for backward compatibility.

The Unit Delay External IC block delays its input by one sample period. This block is equivalent to the z-1 discrete-time operator. The block accepts one input and generates one output, both of which can be scalar or vector. If the input is a vector, all elements of the vector are delayed by the same sample period.
The block's output for the first sample period is equal to the signal
You specify the time between samples with the Sample time
parameter. A setting of
-1 means that the block inherits the
