Detect Inf or Nan in Embedded Matlab Function block

12 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to detect an Inf or Nan being calculated inside an Embedded Matlab block. Simulink does not produce an error, but when we generated code, an exception was found. We are looking to protect against them. The problem can be reduced to the following.
[Constant block=0] --> [Embedded MATLAB Function] --> [Display]
Embedded MATLAB Function
function y = fcn(u)
test = 1/u;
if test > 0
y = 1;
y = 0;
"Configuration Parameters > Diagnostics > Data Validity > Inf or NaN block output", is just that, checking block output, and does not report this. (Which surprised me.)
Note: Simulink 6.6.1

Use isnan or isinf function

isnan and isinf require that the variable carry a value of inf or nan. On our generated code being run on our target platform, when that occurs there is already an exception. It never gets a chance to check for inf or nan.
So my protection, is an attempt to prevent the inf from occurring.

Maybe there is a way to disable such error message in configuration parameters. I will check it.
