C2000 Trig Fcn IQN

Sine, cosine, or arc tangent of IQ number


This block calculates basic trigonometric functions and returns the result as an IQ number. Valid Q values for _IQsinPU and _IQcosPU are 1 to 30. For all others, valid Q values are from 1 to 29.


The implementation of this block does not call the corresponding Texas Instruments® library function during code generation. The TI function uses a global Q setting and the MathWorks® code used by this block dynamically adjusts the Q format based on the block input. See Using the IQmath Library for more information.

Type of trigonometric function to calculate:

  • _IQsin — Compute the sine (sin(A)), where A is in radians.

  • _IQsinPU — Compute the sine per unit (sin(2*pi*A)), where A is in per-unit radians.

  • _IQcos — Compute the cosine (cos(A)), where A is in radians.

  • _IQcosPU — Compute the cosine per unit (cos(2*pi*A)), where A is in per-unit radians.
