Spectrograms show spectral activity over time with amplitude indicated by color
Spectrogram Types: The Many Faces of the Spectrogram Tuesday, November 15, 2022
What is a Spectrogram A spectrogram is a graphic that shows the viewer how the frequency domain content (spectral content) of a signal or signals is changing or progressing over time. It consists of a collection of spectrum traces that are collected/processed over time and stacked next to each other, much like slices of bread in a loaf. While each individual spectrum trace would be on the “butter …
