Owning Class: transforms

Requires: MathScript RT Module


c = fft(a)

c = fft(a, b)

c = fft(a, b, d)

c = fft(a, [], d)


Computes the fast Fourier transform (FFT) in the same manner as the FFT VI.



Name Description
a Specifies a vector or matrix of double-precision, floating-point or complex double-precision, floating-point numbers.
b Controls zero-padding to the signal. b is an integer and typically is a power of 2.
d Specifies the dimension of a in which LabVIEW performs the FFT. d is an integer.
[] Tells LabVIEW that you want to specify a and d but not b.


Name Description
c Returns the fast Fourier transform of a. If a is a vector, c = fft(a) returns the original discrete Fourier transform (DFT). If a is a matrix, c = fft(a) returns the column-wise fast Fourier transforms of all columns of a. c is a vector or matrix.


The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.

Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine Yes
Supported on RT targets Yes
Suitable for bounded execution times on RT Yes


A = [1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1]
C = fft(A, 8)
