**Default: **Rectangle

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.

**Default: **No error

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 of the main lobe to the side lobe,*s*, expressed in decibels

**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 dB for a Dolph-Chebyshev window

Equivalent noise bandwidth of the window defined by the window type.

Coherent gain of the window defined by the window type.

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

**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.

The following equations define the coherent gain (CG) and equivalent noise bandwidth (ENBW) of a given window:

$CG=\frac{\underset{i=0}{\overset{n-1}{\sum}}{w}_{i}}{n}$

$ENBW=\frac{n\underset{i=0}{\overset{n-1}{\sum}}{w}_{i}^{2}}{{\left(\underset{i=0}{\overset{n-1}{\sum}}{w}_{i}\right)}^{2}}$

where *w*_{i} are the window coefficients and *n* is the number of coefficients.
