I’m gonna go ahead and rearrange parts of your message for the ease of
My datafile was recorded for about 20 seconds at a sample rate of
50Msps through a low-pass filter to only capture 0-30MHz.
50Msps * 20s = 1Gs (you’re sure your file is 8GB in size?) should be
plenty enough, so my guess was totally astray.
Looking at the configuration for my FFT, and changing ‘Refresh
Rate’ from the default ‘15’ to ‘1M’ gives me some extra playback.
what gui toolkit are you using? wx or qt?
However, a refresh rate of one million frames per second… doesn’t
even remotely make sense. Since there is no way that your file source
can supply 1024Msps for the GUI sink, even without throttling, I don’t
know what the (wx or qt or whatever) FFT sink does in that case. I’d
have to read the source code…
I like the way the waterfall looks, but I’m having the same issue
as the FFT.
Ok, this is confusing. The waterfall sink should basically be able to
have one pixel of display per sample going in. And with 1 billion
samples going in, there shouldn’t really be repitions visible, unless
your data is repetitive.
Is there some correlation between data rate on the record and FFT
No. Refresh rate is just the display refresh rate, i.e. the speed at
which the GUI updates its visualization.
How is ‘FFT Size’ used (right now I have that at ‘1024’)?
Um this is kinda awkward - it’s the size of the FFT; how the samples
are internally processed prior to being transformed depends on the
actual FFT sink implementation.
On a related note - is there a way to get the FFT to start out in
‘Autoscale’, or do I need to hit the button every time?
No. “Autoscale” is (as far as I know and can remember right now) not a
/mode/ for the qt nor the wx gui fft sink, but scales the display to
fit the data that is display /the moment the button is clicked/. So,
since data can only be available at run time, you can’t do that before
running the flow graph. However, at least for the qt implementation,
you can set y max/y min, if you know it beforehand.
So: Verify your data is really about 1 billion samples long and not
only a few thousand; if your waterfall looks periodic, your recorded
signal is periodic.
