The Autocorrelator
object returns the autocorrelation
sequence for a discretetime, deterministic input, or the autocorrelation
sequence estimate for a discretetime, widesense stationary (WSS)
random process at positive lags.
To obtain the autocorrelation sequence:
Define and set up your autocorrelator. See Construction.
Call step
to compute the autocorrelation
sequence according to the properties of dsp.Autocorrelator
.
The behavior of step
is specific to each object in
the toolbox.
Note:
Starting in R2016b, instead of using the 
ac = dsp.Autocorrelator
returns
an autocorrelator, ac
, that computes the autocorrelation
along the first dimension of an ND array. By default, the autocorrelator
computes the autocorrelation at lags from zero to N
– 1, where N is the length of the input
vector or the row dimension of the input matrix. Inputting a row vector
results in a row of zerolag autocorrelation sequence values, one
for each column of the row vector. The default autocorrelator returns
the unscaled autocorrelation and performs the computation in the time
domain.
