lincurve - one-dimensional lookup table
loadrt lincurve [count=N|names=name1[,name2...]] [personality=P,P,...]
This component can be used to map any floating-point input to a floating-point output. Typical uses would include linearisation of thermocouples, defining PID gains that vary with external factors or to substitute for any mathematical function where absolute accuracy is not required.
The component can be thought of as a 2-dimensional graph of points in (x,y) space joined by straight lines. The input value is located on the x axis, followed up until it touches the line, and the output of the component is set to the corresponding y-value.
The (x,y) points are defined by the x-val-NN and y-val-NN parameters which need to be set in the HAL file using "setp" commands.
The maximum number if (x,y) points supported is 16.
For input values less than the x-val-00 breakpoint the y-val-00 is returned. For x greater than the largest x-val-NN the yval corresponding to x-max is returned (ie, no extrapolation is performed.)
Sample usage: loadrt lincurve count=3 personality=4,4,4 for a set of three 4-element graphs.
