Pre-weighted Data

The Sound Phidget also reports data in dBA (SPL) and dBC (SPL). These are special standardized weightings of the frequency range created for specific purposes. For example, dBA puts less emphasis on lower frequencies that the human ear doesn’t pick up, making it ideal for measuring loudness as heard by your ear.

Frequency Analysis

This Phidget is also capable of analyzing specific frequency bands of sound. Every time data is sent to your program, an array of 11 values will be sent, each one corresponding to a different frequency band ranging from 16 Hz to 16kHz centered.
