    window parameter

    A value that affects the output coefficients when window type is Kaiser, Gaussian, or Dolph-Chebyshev.

    If window type is any other type of window, this node ignores this input.

    This input represents the following information for each type of window:

    • Kaiser—Beta parameter
    • Gaussian—Standard deviation
    • Dolph-Chebyshev—The ratio, s, of the main lobe to the side lobe

    Default: NaN—Causes this node to set beta to 0 for a Kaiser window, the standard deviation to 0.2 for a Gaussian window, and s to 60 for a Dolph-Chebyshev window

    datatype_icon

    datatype_icon

    signal

    Input signal.

    This input accepts the following data types:

    • Waveform
    • Waveform in complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 1D array of waveforms
    • 1D array of waveforms in complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    datatype_icon

    dB on

    A Boolean that specifies whether this node returns the results in decibels.

    True Returns the results in decibels.
    False Returns the results in the original units.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    single-sided

    A Boolean specifying whether this node computes the single-sided or double-sided power spectrum.

    True Computes the single-sided power spectrum.
    False Computes the double-sided power spectrum.

    This input is available only if you wire one of the following data types to signal:

    • Waveform
    • 1D array of waveforms
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    datatype_icon

    dt

    Sample period of the time-domain signal in seconds.

    Set this input to 1/fs, where fs is the sampling frequency of the time-domain signal.

    This input is available only if you wire one of the following data types to signal:

    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 1D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    • 2D array of complex double-precision, floating-point numbers

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    power spectral density

    Power spectral density of the input signals.

    This output can return a cluster or a 1D array of clusters.

    datatype_icon

    f0

    Start frequency, in Hz, of the spectrum.

    datatype_icon

    df

    Frequency resolution, in Hz, of the spectrum.

    datatype_icon

    magnitude

    Magnitude of the power spectral density.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.
