I have 300sec data collected at 1Hz. I want to look at power spectrum of this time series, so first I need to do FFT(). But I am not sure if I need to pad it with zeros to make it 512. Matlab FFT() lets me do it either way, but I don't really understand which way I should do. Please advise.

Hi!! I'm new in this. I've just wanted to know if somebody have the source code of the fft library that uses matlab. Or if somebody knows how does matlab do the fft algorithm. The things is that i have to export it to an embedded system and if i don't have the code i can't do the calculation of the fft Thanks Migel

Hi, I have always been confused about this two functions. Can someone please clarify why they behave this way? Let me give an example To me it looks like that if we compute the impulse response of a filter, it should be the same thing as taking the FFT of that filter. But how come there is a difference? For example, let's say if I take the simple FFT of the following hamming window: L...

Hello, I am trying to calculate the SNR of signal that has just a DC component. Basically what I do is FFT with Kaiser window and I am not sure what actually the FFT returns for the noise spectrum. Are those numbers the noise in a certain bandwidth (1.5 Hz as seen below) or this is the spectrum power density (1Hz)? The actual question is
