First-Order Hold (Obsolete)

Implement first-order sample-and-hold

  • Library:
  • Simulink / Discrete

Description

Note

First-Order Hold is not recommended for continuous to discrete signal conversion. Use Zero-Order Hold instead.

The First-Order Hold block implements a first-order sample-and-hold that operates at the specified sampling interval.

This figure compares the output from a Sine Wave block and a First-Order Hold block.
