Do you have the Signal Processing Toolbox, have you looked at findpeaks()?

You'd have to buy this toolbox from MathWorks.

Did you search in the FileEchange already?

You find a very large number of solutions for standard and non-standard problems there.

If it works, accepting the answer would be a signal for others, that you do not need further suggestion.

i used the following code to call a function that detect the peaks of a signal spectra generated. How do i display the values of these peaks. Pls i need your help.

figure % Plot peaks of the spectrum. [peaks, locs] = findpeaks (2*abs(OutputSignal(1:NFFT/2))) plot (2*abs(OutputSignal(1:NFFT/2))); hold on; plot (locs, peaks, 'r')

In the above code you've used, 'locs' will contain the locations next to the detected peaks.

Have you observed it??

So, if you want to locate the peaks, try the below one...

stem(locs-1,peaks,'are'); % To display in a discrete manner

plot(locs-1,peaks,'are'); % To display in an analog manner

Here's one that doesn't need any toolbox. Go to the web site indicated:
