Abstract

In this paper, an acoustic echo canceller(AEC) is implemented by ADSP-2181. This AEC uses a noise robust adaptive algorithm and a postprocessing method which attenuates residual echo using cross-correlation between estimated error signal and microphone input signal. We propose new postprocessing method that uses two thresholds to prevent signal distortion after postprocessing and to improve the performance of AEC without extra computational burden. Through experiments using a 16 bit fixed-point DSP board (ADSP-2181 EZ-KIT Lite board), it is shown that the noise robust adaptive algorithm performs well in the double-talk situations and the convergence speed is comparable to NLMS. Using the postprocessor, ERLE is improved about 20 dB. As a result, the AEC with a postprocessor shows better performance than conventional ones.
