A single component of the complete sample, or a stream thereof. They typically represent one frequency sub-band, the output from a single antenna, or (for channelized data) one spectral or Fourier channel, ie. one part of a Fourier spectrum.
- complete sample
Set of all component samples - ie. from all threads, polarizations, channels, etc. - for one point in time. Its dimensions are given by the sample shape.
One individual thread and channel, or one polarization and channel, etc. Component samples each occupy one element in decoded data arrays. A component sample is composed of one elementary sample if it is real, and two if it is complex.

Metadata accompanying a data frame.
The data within a data frame.
- sample rate
Rate of complete samples.
- sample shape
The lengths of the dimensions of the complete sample.
The removal of any dimensions of length unity from decoded data.
Timeseries of samples; may refer to all of, or a subsection of, the dataset.
A subset of a complete sample, in particular one defined by the user for selective decoding.
