    reference frequency

    Frequency in Hz at which the spectral density of the ideal inverse-f noise waveform is equal to the noise density you specified.

    The actual inverse-f noise waveform source is designed to approximate the ideal inverse-f noise waveform over the frequency range defined in filter specifications. Therefore, the actual spectral density of the inverse-f noise waveform at reference freq is near noise density if reference freq is within the design frequency range specified in filter specifications.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    reset

    A Boolean that controls the reseeding of the noise sample generator after the first execution of the node. By default, this node maintains the initial internal seed state.

    True Accepts a new seed and begins producing noise samples based on the seed. If the given seed is less than or equal to 0, the node ignores a reset value of True and resumes producing noise samples as a continuation of the previous sequence.
    False Resumes producing noise samples as a continuation of the previous noise sequence. The node ignores new seed inputs while reset is False.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    noise density

    Spectral density (V/root Hz) of the ideal inverse-f noise waveform at the reference frequency.

    The actual inverse-f noise waveform approximates the ideal inverse-f noise over the frequency range defined by filter specifications. Therefore, the actual spectral density of the inverse-f noise waveform at reference freq is near noise density only if reference freq is within the design frequency range specified in filter specifications.

    Default: 0.1

    datatype_icon

    exponent

    Exponent of the desired inverse-f spectral shape. This node designs a digital filter with the desired magnitude-squared response of 1/frequencyexponent.

    Default: 1

    datatype_icon

    filter specifications

    Operating frequency range and the filter order of the filter.

    datatype_icon

    lower cutoff freq

    Lower frequency edge of the operating frequency range of the filter.

    Default: 0.1

    datatype_icon

    higher cutoff freq

    Higher frequency edge of the operating frequency range of the filter.

    Default: 100

    datatype_icon

    order

    Number of first order stages of the inverse-f filter.

    Increasing order improves the inverse-f spectral shape but requires more computation time during the filter operation.

    Default: 5

    datatype_icon

    seed

    A number that initializes the noise generator.

    If reset is unwired, this node maintains the internal seed state.

    seed is greater than 0 Generates noise samples based on the given seed value. For multiple calls to the node, the node accepts or rejects new seed inputs based on the given reset value.
    seed is less than or equal to 0 Generates a random seed value and produces noise samples based on that seed value. For multiple calls to the node, if seed remains less than or equal to 0, the node ignores the reset input and produces noise samples as a continuation of the initial noise sequence.

    Default: -1

    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

    sample rate

    Sampling rate in samples per second.

    Default: 1000

    datatype_icon

    samples

    Number of samples in the signal.

    This input is available only if you configure this node to return a waveform or an array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    Default: 1000

    datatype_icon

    t0

    Timestamp of the output signal. If this input is unwired, this node uses the current time as the timestamp of the output signal.

    This input is available only if you configure this node to return a waveform.

    datatype_icon

    inverse f noise

    Generated inverse-f noise waveform.

    This output can return the following data types:

    • Waveform
    • Double-precision, floating-point number
    • 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers
    datatype_icon

    magnitude error

    Magnitude of the deviation of the actual inverse-f filter, in decibels, when measured against the ideal inverse-f filter.

    The ideal filter has a magnitude-squared response proportional to 1/f exponent over the frequency range specified by low cutoff frequency, high cutoff frequency, and order.
