I am trying to use the min algorithm
"The Min algorithm compares 2 (or more) inputs and outputs the input with the lowest value."
But it seems to output the higher value, making it the same as the Max algorithm. Am I doing something wrong?
Just heard back from the software engineer. He accidentally made a change in the recent build that "broke" the Min cell. He's reverted the change and it should work in the next release. Thanks again for reporting this!
I just tested this on the latest release version and I confirmed your results. It looks like a bug. Thanks for reporting this. I will forward it to the software team.
When will the next release be?
We typically don't have firm release dates set in advance, but I expect the next update will be in January or February.
Luckily, you can make a Min cell using a Max cell and some inverters:
This uses more instructions, but at least it implements the proper functionality.
Yep, that's what I did to replace it, on a hierarchy board.
Actually it looks like the AB in/out condition does the same thing, and uses fewer resources than the Max/Min block? Are there any cases in which the AB condition can't be used in place of a Max or Min block?
I use the AB condition block frequently, as you noted it can perform a min (or max) function, & it has always worked well for me.
You're correct. You can implement this function with an AB condition as well. I don't suppose there is any real advantage or disadvantage to either method, except for the difference in instruction count.
