Scope Signal Statistics Panel

Note

The Signal Statistics panel requires a DSP System Toolbox™ or Simscape™ license.

Display signal statistics for the signal selected in the Trace Selection panel. To open the Signal Statistics panel:

  • From the menu, select Tools > Measurements > Signal Statistics.

  • On the toolbar, click the Signal Statistics button.

The statistics shown are:

  • Max — Maximum or largest value within the displayed portion of the input signal.

  • Min — Minimum or smallest value within the displayed portion of the input signal.

  • Peak to Peak — Difference between the maximum and minimum values within the displayed portion of the input signal.

  • Mean — Average or mean of all the values within the displayed portion of the input signal.

  • Median — Median value within the displayed portion of the input signal.

  • RMS — Root mean squared of the input signal.

When you use the zoom options in the scope, the Signal Statistics measurements automatically adjust to the time range shown in the display. In the scope toolbar, click the Zoom In or Zoom X button to constrict the x-axis range of the display, and the statistics shown reflect this time range. For example, you can zoom in on one pulse to make the Signal Statistics panel display information about only that particular pulse.

The Signal Statistics measurements are valid for any units of the input signal. The letter after the value associated with each measurement represents the appropriate International System of Units (SI) prefix, such as m for milli-. For example, if the input signal is measured in volts, an m next to a measurement value indicates that this value is in units of millivolts. The SI prefixes are shown in the following table:
