VictoriaRodellar BiargeauthorAgustinÁlvarez MarquinaauthorCoralGonzález ConcejeroauthorPedroGómez VildaauthorM. ElviraMartinez de Icaya GomezauthorThis paper describes the design and implementation results of an adaptive Noise Canceller useful for the construction of Robust Speech Enhancement Interfaces. The algorithm being used has very good performance for real time applications. Its main disadvantage is the requirement of calculating several operations of division, having a high computational cost. Besides that, the accuracy of the algorithm is critical in fixed-point representation due to the wide range of the upper and lower bounds of the variables implied in the algorithm. To solve this problem, the accuracy is studied and according to the results obtained a specific word-length has been adopted for each variable. The algorithm has been implemented for Altera and Xilinx FPGAs using high level synthesis tools. The results for a fixed format of 40 bits for all the variables and for a specific word-length for each variable are analyzed and discussed.Telecommunications2008IEEE Computer SocietyPresentation at Congress or Conference
