Deep learning short-time Fourier transform
Deep Learning Short-Time Fourier Transform of Chirp
Generate a signal sampled at 600 Hz for 2 seconds. The signal consists of a chirp with sinusoidally varying frequency content.
fs = 6e2; t = 0:1/fs:2; x = vco(sin(2*pi*t),[0.1 0.4]*fs,fs);
Store the signal in an unformatted deep learning array. Compute the short-time Fourier transform of the signal. Input the sample time as a
duration scalar. (Alternatively, input the sample rate as a numeric scalar.) Specify that the input array is in
dlx = dlarray(x); [y,f,t] = dlstft(dlx,seconds(1/fs),'DataFormat','CTB');
Convert the outputs to numeric arrays. Compute the magnitude of the short-time Fourier transform and display it as a waterfall plot.
y = extractdata(y); f = extractdata(f); t = seconds(t); waterfall(f,t,squeeze(abs(y))') ax = gca; ax.XDir = 'reverse'; view(30,45) ylabel('Time (s)') xlabel('Frequency (Hz)') zlabel('Magnitude')
Deep Learning Short-Time Fourier Transform of Sinusoid
Generate a 3-by-160(-by-1) array containing one batch of a three-channel, 160-sample sinusoidal signal. The normalized sinusoid frequencies are rad/sample, rad/sample, and rad/sample. Save the signal as a
dlarray, specifying the dimensions in order.
dlarray permutes the array dimensions to the
'CBT' shape expected by a deep learning network. Display the array dimension sizes.
x = dlarray(cos(pi.*(1:3)'/4*(0:159)),'CTB'); [nchan,nbtch,nsamp] = size(x)
nchan = 3
nbtch = 1
nsamp = 160
Compute the deep learning short-time Fourier transform of the signal. Specify a 64-sample rectangular window and an FFT length of 1024.
[y,f,t] = dlstft(x,'Window',rectwin(64),'FFTLength',1024);
dlstft computes the transform along the
'T' dimension. The output array is in
'SCBT' format. The
'S' dimension corresponds to frequency in the short-time Fourier transform. Extract the data from the deep learning array.
y = extractdata(y); f = extractdata(f); t = extractdata(t);
Compute the magnitude of the short-time Fourier transform. Plot the magnitude separately for each channel in a waterfall plot.
z = abs(squeeze(y)); for kj = 1:nchan subplot(nchan,1,kj) waterfall(f/pi,t,squeeze(z(:,kj,:))') view(30,45) end xlabel('Frequency (\times\pi rad/sample)') ylabel('Samples')

adjoining segments and a 128-point FFT.
DataFormat — Data format of input
character vector | string scalar
Data format of input, specified as a character vector or string scalar. This
argument is valid only if
x is unformatted.
Each character in this argument must be one of these labels:

dlstft implicitly permutes both the argument and the data

Window — Spectral window
hann(128,'periodic') (default) | vector
Spectral window, specified as a vector. If you do not specify the window or
specify it as empty, the function uses a Hann window of length 128. The length of

OverlapLength — Number of overlapped samples
75% of window length (default) | nonnegative integer
Number of overlapped samples, specified as a nonnegative integer smaller than the

'OverlapLength' or specify it as empty, it is set to the
largest integer less than 75% of the window length, which is 96 samples for the
default Hann window.
FFTLength — Number of discrete Fourier transform (DFT) points

Number of DFT points, specified as a positive integer. The value must be greater than or equal to the window length. If the length of the input signal is less than the DFT length, the data is padded with zeros.

Short-Time Fourier Transform
The short-time Fourier transform (STFT) is used to analyze how the frequency content of a nonstationary signal changes over time. The magnitude squared of the STFT is known as the spectrogram time-frequency representation of the signal. For more information about the spectrogram and how to compute it using Signal Processing Toolbox™ functions, see Spectrogram Computation with Signal Processing Toolbox.
The STFT of a signal is computed by sliding an analysis window g(n) of length M over the signal and calculating the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of each segment of windowed data. The window hops over the original signal at intervals of R samples, equivalent to L = M – R samples of overlap between adjoining segments. Most window functions taper off at the edges to avoid spectral ringing. The DFT of each windowed segment is added to a complex-valued matrix that contains the magnitude and phase for each point in time and frequency. The STFT matrix has
columns, where Nx is the length of the signal x(n) and the ⌊⌋ symbols denote the floor function. The number of rows in the matrix equals NDFT, the number of DFT points, for centered and two-sided transforms and an odd number close to NDFT/2 for one-sided transforms of real-valued signals.
The mth column of the STFT matrix contains the DFT of the windowed data centered about time mR:
The short-time Fourier transform is invertible. The inversion process overlap-adds the windowed segments to compensate for the signal attenuation at the window edges. For more information, see Inverse Short-Time Fourier Transform.
istftfunction inverts the STFT of a signal.
Under a specific set of circumstances it is possible to achieve "perfect reconstruction" of a signal. For more information, see Perfect Reconstruction.

Version HistoryIntroduced in R2021a
dlstft combines real and imaginary parts of transform into one
Starting in R2023b,
dlstft combines the real and imaginary
parts of the STFT into a single output argument. Previously, the function returned the real
part of the transform as the first output argument and the imaginary part as the second.
Starting this release, the function returns as second and third output arguments the
frequencies and times at which the STFT is computed, respectively. Function calls with four
output arguments error out.
