## 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

## 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 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

## eq noise bw

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

## coherent gain

Coherent gain of the window defined by the window type.

## error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

## Algorithm for Window Properties

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

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

where wi are the window coefficients and n is the number of coefficients.
