Description

Generate a chirp signal. A chirp signal is a frequency swept cosine wave.

Usage

1
2
chirp(t, f0 = 0, t1 = 1, f1 = 100, 
      form = c("linear", "quadratic", "logarithmic"), phase = 0)

Arguments

t

array of times at which to evaluate the chirp signal.

f0

frequency at time t=0.

t1

time, s.

f1

frequency at time t=t1.

form

shape of frequency sweep, one of "linear", "quadratic", or "logarithmic".

phase

phase shift at t=0.

Details

'linear' is:

f(t) = (f1-f0)*(t/t1) + f0

'quadratic' is:

f(t) = (f1-f0)*(t/t1)^2 + f0

'logarithmic' is:

f(t) = (f1-f0)^{t/t1} + f0

Value

Chirp signal, an array the same length as t.

# Time goes from -2 to 15 seconds.

# Shows a logarithmic chirp of 200 Hz at t=0 and 500 Hz at t=2
# Time goes from 0 to 5 seconds at 8000 Hz.
specgram(chirp(seq(0, 5, by=1/8000), 200, 2, 500, "logarithmic"))
