The present code is a Matlab function that provides:
1) Plotting of:
- the signal in the time domain;
- the amplitude spectrum of the signal;
- the power spectrum of the signal;
- the power spectral density of the signal.
2) Displaying of:
- the average Amplitude Spectral Density before A-weighting;
- the average Power Spectral Density before A-weighting;
- the average Amplitude Spectral Density after A-weighting;
- the average Power Spectral Density after A-weighting;
- the output noise (by Oscilloscope) before A-weighting;
- the output noise (by TrueRMS Voltmeter) before A-weighting;
- the output noise (by Oscilloscope) after A-weighting;
- the output noise (by TrueRMS Voltmeter) after A-weighting.
Two examples are given in order to clarify the usage of the function. The input arguments are given in the beginning of the code.

The code is based on the theory described in:
