Does nperseg=32, noverlap=16 mean the window length is 32mS with a shift of 16mS?

Refer here for more details


for this function:

  • nperseg will set the number of samples to output from your STFT.
  • noverlap will specify how many old samples you want to take to calculate your future STFT.

Let's say you want a stft of size 256 with an overlap of 50% you will set noverlap = 128. 128 samples will then be taken from the old segment that was used to calculate the previous STFT...

For more information about STFT and the interest of overlap I invite you to watch this discussion.

STFT: why overlapping the window?
