SpectraComp analyzes a signal
and graphs the result. The class,
performs a fast Fourier transform (FFT) on an input data array. A
method of this class,
computefft, returns the results
of that FFT as two output arrays—an array of frequency points
and the power spectral density. The second class,
graphs the returned data using the
These two methods,
encapsulate MATLAB functions.
computefft method computes the FFT and
power spectral density of the input data and computes a vector of
frequency points based on the length of the data entered and the sampling
plotfft method plots the FFT data
and the power spectral density in a MATLAB figure window. The MATLAB code
for these two methods resides in two MATLAB files,
which can be found in:
