IEEE single precision floating point numbers are built from 32 bits. Sometimes especially when trying to cosimulate with an FPGA vendor provided floating point cores, it is need to represent these numbers as unsigned 32 bit integers. Standard Simulink "type conversion" block in "stored integer" mode does no do this well (all fractional parts are not propagated).
Does not support automatic HDL code generation.
