[docs]class Frequency(object): """ A frequency band. The frequency object provides a convenient way to work with and access a frequency band. It contains a frequency vector as well as a frequency unit. This allows a frequency vector in a given unit to be available (:attr:`f_scaled`), as well as an absolute frequency axis in 'Hz' (:attr:`f`). A Frequency object can be created from either (start, stop, npoints) using the default constructor, :func:`__init__`. Or, it can be created from an arbitrary frequency vector by using the class method :func:`from_f`. Internally, the frequency information is stored in the `f` property combined with the `unit` property. All other properties, `start` `stop`, etc are generated from these.

Creates a Frequency object from start/stop/npoints and a unit. Alternatively, the class method :func:`from_f` can be used to create a Frequency object from a frequency vector instead. Parameters ---------- start : number, optional start frequency in units of `unit`. Default is 0. stop : number, optional stop frequency in units of `unit`. Default is 0. npoints : int, optional number of points in the band. Default is 0. unit : string, optional Frequency unit of the band: 'hz', 'khz', 'mhz', 'ghz', 'thz'. This is used to create the attribute :attr:`f_scaled`. It is also used by the :class:`` class for plots vs. frequency. Default is 'ghz'. sweep_type : string, optional Type of the sweep: 'lin' or 'log'. 'lin' for linear and 'log' for logarithmic. Default is 'lin'.
