Operator FrameEndToSignal

Operator Library: Signal

The operator generates a signal pulse when the end of the input image is detected. The operator input is an image stream. The operator waits for the end of the input image stream. When the frame end is detected, a signal pulse of one clock cycle is output. Note that the end of a frame might not occur directly after the last frame pixel. See the following figure for explanation:

Note that empty images can exist in VisualApplets. The operator will generate a signal pulse for empty frames, too.

This operator is excluded from the VisualApplets functional simulation.
