SignalCreateSignal Method (Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double)

Create a new signal based on the given properties. To modify a preexisting signal, use ModifySignalProperties(Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double, Double) or similar methods on the preexisting signal instance.

Syntax
public static Signal CreateSignal(
	double power,
	double frequency,
	double lowerBandwidthLimit,
	double upperBandwidthLimit,
	double noiseTemperature,
	double lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit,
	double upperNoiseBandwidthLimit
)

Parameters

power
Type: SystemDouble
Signal power, in watts.
frequency
Type: SystemDouble
Signal frequency, in hertz.
lowerBandwidthLimit
Type: SystemDouble
A value specifying the (negative) offset, in hertz, from the central frequency, to the lower limit of the signal's bandwidth.
upperBandwidthLimit
Type: SystemDouble
A value specifying the (positive) offset, in hertz, from the central frequency, to the upper limit of the signals' bandwidth.
noiseTemperature
Type: SystemDouble
The equivalent noise temperature, in kelvin, spread out over the noise bandwidth.
lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit
Type: SystemDouble
The offset to the lower limit of the noise bandwidth, in hertz.
upperNoiseBandwidthLimit
Type: SystemDouble
The offset to the upper limit of the noise bandwidth, in hertz.

Return Value

Type: Signal
The newly created signal.
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Thrown when:

  • frequency, power, or noiseTemperature is negative
  • the computed LowerBandwidthFrequency (frequency + lowerBandwidthLimit) is negative
  • the frequency Bandwidth (upperBandwidthLimit - lowerBandwidthLimit) is zero
  • lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit causes the lowest frequency of the noise to be negative (frequency + lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit must be positive)
  • lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit is greater than upperNoiseBandwidthLimit (note that lowerNoiseBandwidthLimit is usually negative)
