Heartbeat counter using FFT

Reads an analog input on pin 15 (heartbeat) which is stored inside the vReal array. The heartbeat
is windowed according to Hamming function. The FFT is computed using the windowed signal. Then the
magnitudes of each of the frequencies that compose the signal are calculated. Finally, the frequency
with the highest peak is obtained, being that the main frequency present in the signal, hence the BPM.
