Hello,
I would like to us sqrt() and run it on a embeded controller. I was wondering sqrt() is the same as Fast inverse square root ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_inverse_square_root ). if not, is it efficent as Fast inverse square root. Does it support code generation? Can I use it in embeded control software?
Thanks,
Hongbo

@Rik Thank you very much for your quick response and explanation. It will be great if someone from MathWork can confirm rsqrt() is efficient for embeded control system.

Hi,
The Simulink sqrt block supports rsqrt.
The algorithm is Newton-Raphson, so it can be considered the same as the one described on the wiki.
With that setting, C code generation is possible.

i = * ( long * ) &y
This is equivalent to:
y = single(pi);
i = typecast(y, 'int32');
The shown code of Q_rsqrt is an approximation of 1/sqrt(x) for single precision floating point values. It might have a fair speed on CPUs without a floating point unit, but it is less accurate then the direct calculation.

Hi @Jan, Thank you very much. I noticed there is also a simulink block named Float Typecast. Does it supported by code generation for embeded controller?
