What is waterfall frequency spacing? And how does the DATS parameter ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ work?

fa fa-file-text-o

Let us try to understand what waterfall frequency spacing is. Waterfall frequency spacing is the gap between spectral lines in an FFT plot.

For example, if you had an analysis frequency of 0Hz to 100Hz and 100 spectral lines, then Frequency Spacing is 1Hz.

So why is there a ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ and an ‘Actual Frequency Spacing’? Continue reading What is waterfall frequency spacing? And how does the DATS parameter ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ work?

What is “waterfall smearing”?

fa fa-file-text-o

When analysing a waterfall or performing order analysis it is important to consider the frequency resolution or the frequency spacing.

There is often a desire to increase the resolution to finer and finer detail. But that is a process of diminishing returns, and actually fraught with danger. And that danger is waterfall smearing. Continue reading What is “waterfall smearing”?
