The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to perform a Fast Fourier Transform on the active chart and display the results in a new chart.


This command is accessed from the SimData Editor by choosing the Chart » Create FFT Chart command from the main menus.

The command is only available provided the active chart is plot-based rather than text-based (i.e. Operating Point or Transfer Function analysis).


First, ensure that the chart on which you want to perform a Fast Fourier Transform is selected in the Waveform Analysis window. This is achieved by clicking on the required analysis tab at the bottom of the window.

After launching the command, the FFT will be performed and the results displayed in a new chart, a new tab will be added (<AnalysisType>_FFT) and made the active chart in the window.


The new chart will be added after the last chart in the document.
