DFT for a Given Frequency (Goertzel) Functions

The functions described in this section compute a single or a number of the discrete Fourier transforms for a given frequency. Note that the DFT exists only for the following normalized frequencies: 0, 1/
, 2/
... (
, where
is the number of time domain samples. Therefore you must select the frequency value from the above set.
These Intel IPP functions use a Goertzel algorithm [Mit98] and are more efficient when a small number of DFT values is needed.
Some of the functions compute two values, not one. The applications computing several values, for example the dual-tone multi frequency signal detection, work faster with such functions.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
