  • Add support for Adaptive Scaling for RDX2/RDX4/IRDX2/IRDX4 instructions
  • Add LSFR feature for the PDMA instruction
  • Update SPT 2.0, 2.5 and 2.8 bit exact simulator to version 3.0.0
  • Update SPT 3.0 bit exact simulator to version 2.0.19. To enable SPT 3.0 simulator a special license is needed. Please contact the NXP support to get access to such license
  • Integrate Help and Examples into MATLAB documentation framework. Opening the MATLAB Help will show new section of “Supplemental Software” for Model-Based Design for SPT Toolbox.

Hi,

Our customers used SPT2.0 with NXP_RADAR_TOOLBOX1.2.0 to run SPT_Example.m normally, but after upgrading to NXP_RADAR_TOOLBOX1.3.0, some errors occurred. Please help to check the reason.

The picture is as follows:

SPT2.0+NXP_RADAR_TOOLBOX1.2.0  is OK

SPT2.0+NXP_RADAR_TOOLBOX1.3.0 have some issues.

Hi,Hao Ren:

I have the same problem with you,having taken a lot time but  failed to solve the problem,could you please tell me how to solve the problem? appreciate very much!

Hello nxf47389‌,

You should uninstall the toolbox SPT_2.0_64-bit. This is one of the earliest version of NXP_RADAR_Toolbox_for_S32R.

The error is because there was added a new argument to the following mex files: rdx2_mex, rdx4_mex, irdx2_mex, and irdx4_mex.

syntax for SPT 2.x
[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = rdx2_mex(M_Tw, M_Op, fft_rnd, real_fft, quad_ext, repeat, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = rdx4_mex(M_Wc_Tw, M_Op, win_type, win_coeff_type, fft_rnd, quad_ext, repeat, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = irdx2_mex(M_Tw, M_Op, fft_rnd, quad_ext, repeat, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = irdx4_mex(M_Wc_Tw, M_Op, win_type, win_coeff_type, fft_rnd, quad_ext, repeat, shft_val, adptv)

syntax for SPT 3.0
[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = rdx2_mex(M_Tw, M_Op, fft_rnd, real_fft, quad_ext, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = rdx4_mex(M_Wc_Tw, M_Op, win_type, win_coeff_type, fft_rnd, quad_ext, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = irdx2_mex(M_Tw, M_Op, fft_rnd, quad_ext, shft_val, adptv)

[M_Out, adptv_acc_shift] = irdx4_mex(M_Wc_Tw, M_Op, win_type, win_coeff_type, fft_rnd, quad_ext, shft_val, adptv)

adptv_acc_shift is the adaptive scaling accumulated shift

adptv is the adaptive scaling type; valid values are:

  • 'NO_ADPTV' - disable adaptive scaling
  • 'ADPTV_TYPE1' - MSB occupation counter counts unoccupied bits from bit 15 downwards
  • 'ADPTV_TYPE2' - MSB occupation counter counts unoccupied bits from bit:
    • 23 downwards for SPT 2.0, 2.8 and 3.0
    • 19 downwards for SPT 2.5

Best regards,

Iulian Bulancea
