I'm trying to use the spectrumCalculator in your components, however i'm kinda confused with the output value of spectrumCalculator.PowerSpectrum();
What's the unit of output?
is it in decibels?
is it in watts?
in you examples it is named as"p(f)"

Hello,

Since the X-axis shows frequency, we can assume that the Y-axis has units of power per frequency, for example W/Hz.
Of course, the purpose of these examples is above all to show what LightningChart is capable of doing.

Best regards,
Lasse
