# Frequency Response Function (Magnitude-Phase » All Cross Pairs) (G Dataflow)

Computes the frequency response and the coherence and returns the results as the magnitude and phase of the averaged frequency response.

This node calculates the frequency response of the channels in the stimulus signal against the channels in the response signal according to the following table:

Stimulus Signal Response Signal Results
One channel One channel One output.
Multiple channels One channel The first channel in the stimulus signal against the single channel in the response signal, the second channel in the stimulus signal against the single channel in the response signal, and so on. The output contains the same number of channels as the stimulus signal.
One channel Multiple channels The single channel in the stimulus signal against the first channel in the response signal, the single channel in the stimulus signal against the second channel in the response signal, and so on. The output contains the same number of channels as the response signal.
N channels M channels The matrix set of the stimulus signal versus the response signal. The node returns the signals in the order 1 - 1, ..., 1 - M, 2 - 1, ..., 2 - M, ..., N - M.
Empty Empty If either the stimulus signal or the response signal is empty, the result is empty and the node returns an error.

## 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

## restart averaging

A Boolean that specifies whether the node restarts the selected averaging process.

 True Restarts the averaging process. False Does not restart the averaging process.

When you call this node for the first time, the averaging process restarts automatically. A typical case when you restart averaging is when a major input change occurs in the middle of the averaging process.

Default: False

## stimulus signal

The input, time domain signal x.

This input can be a waveform or an array of waveforms.

## response signal

The input, time domain signal y.

This input can be a waveform or an array of waveforms.

## view

Settings that define how this node returns results.

### 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

### unwrap phase

A Boolean specifying whether to unwrap the phase.

 True Unwraps the phase. False Does not unwrap the phase.

Unwrapping eliminates discontinuities that have an absolute value greater than pi.

Default: False

### convert to degree

A Boolean specifying whether this node converts the phase results from radians to degrees.

 True Returns the phase results in degrees. False Returns the phase results in radians.

Default: False

## averaging parameters

Settings that define how this node computes the averaging.

### averaging mode

The mode this node uses to compute the averaging.

Name Description
No averaging Does not use averaging.
Vector averaging Uses vector averaging.
RMS averaging Uses RMS averaging.
Peak hold Uses peak hold averaging.

Default: No averaging

### weighting mode

Weighting mode for RMS and vector averaging.

Name Description
Linear Uses linear weighting.
Exponential Uses exponential weighting.

Default: Exponential

### number of averages

Number of averages to use for RMS and vector averaging.

If weighting mode is Exponential, the averaging process is continuous. If weighting mode is Linear, the averaging process stops after this node computes the specified number of averages.

Default: 10

## 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

## FRF Mode

The mode this node uses to compute the frequency response function (FRF).

If you know that noise, which does not propagate through the system under test, infiltrates the input or output signals, you can select the method for computing the FRF to minimize the measurement error.

Name Description
H1 Minimizes errors in the result when extraneous noise contaminates the output signal.
H2 Minimizes errors in the result when extraneous noise contaminates the input signal.
H3 When noise contaminates both the input and output signals, H1 and H2 provide the lower and upper bounds of the true frequency response of the system. In this case, select H3, the average of H1 and H2.

Default: H1

## magnitude

Magnitude of the averaged frequency response of the input signals.

### f0

Start frequency, in Hz, of the spectrum.

## phase

Phase of the averaged frequency response of the input signals.

### f0

Phase, in radians, of the averaged frequency response.

## averaging done

A Boolean that indicates whether the number of averages this node completed is greater than or equal to the specified number of averages.

 True The number of averages this node completed is greater than or equal to the specified number of averages. False The number of averages this node completed is less than the specified number of averages.

averaging done is True if averaging mode is No averaging.

## averages completed

Number of averages this node completed.

## error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Coherence of the averaged frequency response of the input signals.
