What is the number of points used to perform the range_FFT the doppler_FFT and the reason why you need this number of points

regards,

Olivier

Hi Olivier,

In the example shown Accelerate the Discrete Fourier Transform with NXP SPT  the number of points used for Range FFT is M=512 and for Doppler FFT is N=256, which means that one frame has N=256 chirps, and each chirp has M=512 samples.

In order to perform the FFT algorithm, the number of points (M and N) must be a power of 2. In general, the larger number the better the resolution.

Regards,

Iulian
