Getting two components for one frequency in FFT

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
I'm getting 2 freq in fft .
But I have signal at 1MHz. Getting peak at 999000 and next is at 1MHz.(other frequencies are also there , 10k, 50k, 500k. For these peak is same as signal frequency.)
Sampling freq is 5MPs.
What is happening at 1MHz ?
Any reason for this?
Please clarify this.
Thank you..

The fft is a circular Fourier transform, there will always be some spectral leakage from frequencies that are not exactly periodic over your data-sample-array. That is what you see here.

Code looks OK, share the input signal for more detailed answer.
