Bode Analyzer using STM32F407 Discovery board

Introduction Frequency domain analysis is very important to know more about any system/ circuit or transfer function that we deal with. And the first thought comes to our mind about frequency domain analysis is "Bode plot". Bode plot is a combination plot of magnitude and phase difference of output vs. input of a cosine wave of single frequency, when it is applied to a circuit. Each of these cosine wave (si ...
