The TV framework described in another project was used as a spectrum analyser by adding a fixed point FFT routine. The routine works in 16:16 fixed format. A 512 point complex FFT takes 410,000 cpu cycles (with no optimization) or about 6.8 milliseconds. If we include the time to Hanning window the signal and compute the magnitude of the complex output, the process takes 454,800 cpu cycles (with no optimization), or about 7.6 milliseconds. Running the compiler at optimization level 1 (highest free compiler level) reduces the number of cpu cycles to 146,000, or about 2.4 milliseconds for Hanning-FFT-magnutude calculation. The two images show a sine signal and a square wave captured at 900,000 samples/sec. There is some aliasing of the square wave so the peaks are not clean, but you can see the 1/f spectrum.

Iantramnamcodon: This is true, but it is commonly assumed that if you state just one number, that the other is zero.
