The code presented here concerns the impedance frequency response measurement of a two-terminal circuit using the DAQ-system NI USB-6211. The measurement is based on the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and Maximum Likelihood estimation (MLE) of the amplitude and phase of the voltage across- and the current through- the two-terminal circuit. Then the impedance modulus and phase is calculated. The excitation of the device under test is performed via single-tone sine wave signal with stepwise increasing frequency. The measurement setup is given in the .zip file. The code provides:
1) a plot of the impedance frequency response (modulus and phase) of the two-terminal circuit;
2) ImpedanceRespData.mat file with the measurement results (for post-processing).
The code is based on the theory described in:
