The operator generates a signal pulse when the start of an input image is detected. The operator input is an image stream. The operator waits for the first pixel of the input image. When the first pixel is detected, a signal pulse of one clock cycle is output. See the following figure for explanation:
Note that empty images can exist in VisualApplets. For empty images, the operator cannot find a first pixel. In this case, the operator will output a pulse at the end of the frame. If the first line of a frame does not include any pixels, the operator will output a pulse at the end of the first line.
This operator is excluded from the VisualApplets functional simulation.
|Input Link||I, image data input|
|Output Link||O, signal output|
The use of operator FrameStartToSignal is shown in the following examples:
