FFT Algorithms

PeakLab offers four different FFT algorithms and a composite procedure that minimizes computation time.

This is the conventional power of 2 FFT procedure. PeakLab supports the following n: 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384, 32768, 65536, 131072, 262144, 524288, 1048576, 2097152, 4194304, 8388608, and 16777216. If the data size is not a power of 2, zeros are appended to the next larger n.

Prime Factor

The prime factor FFT procedure used in PeakLab processes primes through 13. PeakLab uses an implementation of Temperton's Prime Factor FFT (C. Temperton, "Implementation of a Self-Sorting In-Place Prime Factor FFT Algorithm", Journal of Computational Physics, v. 58, p. 283, 1985). For real data, the following n are processed exactly: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 36, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 66, 70, 72, 78, 80, 84, 88, 90, 96, 104, 110, 112, 120, 126, 130, 132, 140, 144, 154, 156, 160, 168, 176, 180, 182, 198, 208, 210, 220, 224, 234, 240, 252, 260, 264, 280, 286, 288, 308, 312, 330, 336, 352, 360, 364, 390, 396, 416, 420, 440, 462, 468, 480, 504, 520, 528, 546, 560, 572, 616, 624, 630, 660, 672, 720, 728, 770, 780, 792, 840, 858, 880, 910, 924, 936, 990, 1008, 1040, 1056, 1092, 1120, 1144, 1170, 1232, 1248, 1260, 1320, 1386, 1430, 1440, 1456, 1540, 1560, 1584, 1638, 1680, 1716, 1760, 1820, 1848, 1872, 1980, 2002, 2016, 2080, 2184, 2288, 2310, 2340, 2464, 2520, 2574, 2640, 2730, 2772, 2860, 2912, 3080, 3120, 3168, 3276, 3360, 3432, 3640, 3696, 3744, 3960, 4004, 4290, 4368, 4576, 4620, 4680, 5040, 5148, 5280, 5460, 5544, 5720, 6006, 6160, 6240, 6552, 6864, 6930, 7280, 7392, 7920, 8008, 8190, 8580, 8736, 9240, 9360, 10010, 10080, 10296, 10920, 11088, 11440, 12012, 12320, 12870, 13104, 13728, 13860, 14560, 15840, 16016, 16380, 17160, 18018, 18480, 18720, 20020, 20592, 21840, 22176, 22880, 24024, 25740, 26208, 27720, 30030, 32032, 32760, 34320, 36036, 36960, 40040, 41184, 43680, 48048, 51480, 55440, 60060, 65520, 68640, 72072, 80080, 90090, 96096, 102960, 110880, 120120, 131040, 144144, 160160, 180180, 205920, 240240, 288288, 360360, 480480, 720720, and 1441440. For other sizes, zeros are appended to the next larger n. This is the second fastest of the FFT procedures. If the data size exceeds 1441440, the Chirp-Z algorithm is automatically used.
