**Owning Palette:** Discrete Wavelet VIs

**Requires:** Advanced Signal Processing Toolkit

Retrieves approximation or detail discrete wavelet transform (DWT) coefficients at a specific level. Use the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to compute the DWT of a signal. Wire data to the **DWT coef** input to determine the polymorphic instance to use or manually select the instance.

Use the pull-down menu to select an instance of this VI.

coef type specifies whether this VI returns approximation coefficients or detail coefficients. The default is Approximation coefficients. | |

DWT coef specifies the approximation coefficients and the detail coefficients from the multi-level discrete wavelet transform (DWT). You must organize the coefficients into a waveform starting with the approximation coefficients at the largest level followed by the detail coefficients at all levels in descending order. If you use the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to compute the DWT, wire the DWT coef output of the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to the DWT coef input of this VI.

length specifies, in a 1D array, the number of approximation and detail coefficients at each level. At a decomposition level of N, length is equal to N+2. The first element of length always is equal to the number of approximation coefficients. The last element of length indicates the total number of raw data samples. You must arrange the length of the detail coefficients in descending order. If you use the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to compute the DWT, wire the length output of the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to the length input of this VI.

coef level specifies the coefficient level this VI returns. The coef level must be between 1 and the largest level of the detail coefficients. The levels in the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI specifies the largest level of the coefficients. The default is 1, which means this VI returns the coefficients at level 1. If coef type is Approximation coefficients, this VI ignores coef level. If coef type is Detail coefficients, this VI returns the coefficients at the level you specify in coef level.

error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality. | |

DWT coef out returns DWT coef unchanged. | |

length out returns length unchanged. | |

error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality. | |

selected DWT coef returns the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) coefficients at the coefficient level coef level of the coefficient type coef type. |

coef type specifies whether this VI returns approximation coefficients or detail coefficients. The default is Approximation coefficients. | |

DWT coef specifies the approximation coefficients and the detail coefficients from the multi-level discrete wavelet decomposition (DWT). You must organize the coefficients into a 1D real array starting with the approximation coefficients at the largest level followed by the detail coefficients at all levels in descending order. If you use the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to compute the DWT, wire the DWT coef output of the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to the DWT coef input of this VI.

DWT coef specifies the approximation coefficients and the detail coefficients from the multi-level discrete wavelet transform. Each element of the array contains the 2D DWT results of one level. The i^{th} element stores the approximation coefficients and the detail coefficients at level i+1. If you use the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to compute the DWT, wire the DWT coef output of the WA Discrete Wavelet Transform VI to the DWT coef input of this VI.
