    reset

    A Boolean that specifies whether to reset the internal state of the node.

    True Resets the internal state of the node.
    False Does not reset the internal state of the node.

    This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to x.

    Default: False

    datatype_icon

    x

    The input sequence.

    The length of the sequence must be a power of 2, otherwise this node returns an error.

    This input accepts a double-precision, floating-point number or a 1D array of double-precision, floating-point numbers.

    datatype_icon

    sample length

    Length of each set of data. The node performs computation for each set of data.

    sample length must be greater than zero.

    This input is available only if you wire a double-precision, floating-point number to x.

    Default: 128

    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

    Walsh-Hadamard{x}

    The Walsh Hadamard transform of the input sequence.

    datatype_icon

    error out

    Error information.

    The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

    Algorithm Definition

    The Walsh Hadamard transform is based on an orthogonal system consisting of functions of only two elements -1 and 1. For the special case of n = 4, the Walsh Hadamard transform of the signal X = {x0, x1, x2, x3} can be noted in the following matrix form:

    W H { X } = [ 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ] [ x 0 x 1 x 2 x 3 ]

    If WHn and WHn+1 denote the Walsh Hadamard matrices of dimension 2n and 2n + 1 respectively, the rule is

    W H n + 1 = [ W H n W H n W H n W H n ]

    where -WHn is meant in the element wise sense.

    Note  

    The Walsh Hadamard transform fulfills the Convolution Theorem: WH{X*Y} = WH{X}WH{Y}.

    Comparing the Walsh Hadamard Transform with the Fourier transform

    The Walsh Hadamard transform has similar properties to the Fourier transform, but the computational effort is considerably smaller.

    The following diagram shows the Walsh Hadamard transform of a pulse pattern signal of length 256, delay 32, and width 64.
