Measurements and Feature Extraction
Signal Processing Toolbox™ provides functions that let you measure common distinctive features of a signal. Locate signal peaks and determine their height, width, and distance to neighbors. Measure time-domain features such as peak-to-peak amplitudes and signal envelopes. Measure pulse metrics such as overshoot and duty cycle.
In the frequency domain, measure fundamental, mean, median, and harmonic frequencies, channel bandwidth, and power in a frequency band. Characterize systems by measuring spurious free dynamic range (SFDR), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), total harmonic distortion (THD), signal to noise and distortion ratio (SINAD), and third-order intercept (TOI).
