**DMT Principles: IFFT/FFT-based modulation**

Modulation-technique : DMT (Discrete Multitone) Basic idea: Decompose frequency into ‘tones’ (FFT/IFFT) Assign bits according to SNR per tone ADSL spec (=ANSI standard): 256 tones, 512-point (I)FFTs carrier spacing fo= kHz, basic sampling rate 2.21 MHz (=512* kHz) VDSL (=proposal): up to 4096 tones, same carrier spacing frequentie SNR bits/toon Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

**Communication impairments (1)**

Frequency-dependent channel attenuation introduces inter-symbol interference (ISI) equalization Coupling between wires in same or adjacent binders introduces crosstalk (XT) Near-end Xtalk (NEXT) Far-end Xtalk (FEXT) Other systems (e.g. HPNA) Radio Frequency Interference (RFI): e.g. AM broadcast, amateur radio Noise: e.g. impulsive noise (=high bursts of short duration) Echo: due to hybrid impedance mismatch echo cancellation Conclusion: Need advanced modulation, DSP,etc. ! useful signal FEXT NEXT Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

14
**Modulation - Demodulation (2)**

Transmission: modulation is realized by means of 2N-point Inverse Discrete Fourier Transform (IFFT) (example N=4 ) Receiver: demodulation with inverse operation, i.e. FFT real real Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

15
**The Magic Prefix Trick (1)**

Additional feature : before transmission, a ‘prefix’ is added to each time-domain symbol, i.e. the last samples are copied and put up front : Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

16
**The Magic Prefix Trick (2)**

Prefix insertion : in the receiver, the samples corresponding to the prefix are removed (=unused) : IFFT P/S S/P Discrete equivalent channel FFT FEQ Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

17
**The Magic Prefix Trick (3)**

if channel impulse response has length L (= L non-zero taps) and ( is prefix length), then all ‘transient effects’ between symbols are confined to the prefix period : Tx-side Rx-side Channel Tone 3 Tone 2 Tone 1 Tone 0 Tone 3 Tone 2 Tone 1 Tone 0 ch(t) * s(t) r(t) Prefix From IFFT Guardband To FFT Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

18
**The Magic Prefix Trick (4)**

Magic trick fails if , resulting in inter-symbol-interference (ISI) = interference from previous symbol(s) (same carrier) inter-carrier interference (ICI) = interference from other carriers In the receiver, after removing the samples corresponding to the prefix, the i-th tone is observed, multiplied by a factor H(i.fo), i.e. the channel response for frequency f=i.fo ‘Prefix trick’ is based on a linear convolution (filtering by channel impulse response) being turned into a circular convolution, which corresponds to component-wise multiplication in frequency domain easy equalization !

23
**Acoustic echo cancellation (AEC)**

Suppress acoustic and line echo: to guarantee normal conversation conditions : users do not like to hear a delayed and filtered version of their own voice to prevent the closed-loop system from becoming unstable if amplification is too high Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

24
Room Acoustics Propagation of sound waves in an acoustic environment results in signal attenuation spectral distortion The attenuation and distortion can be modeled quite well as a linear filtering operation Non-linear distortion mainly stems from the loudspeakers. Its effect is typically of second order, therefore (often) not taken into account The linear filter h[k] modeling the acoustic path between loudspeaker and microphone is represented by the acoustic impulse response Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

25
**Acoustic Impulse Response (1)**

Different parts: dead time direct path impulse and early reflections, which depend on the geometry of the room an exponentially decaying tail called reverberation, coming from multiple reflections For typical applications the impulse reponse is between 100 and 400 ms long several 100 to kHz memory requirement for circular buffers in DSP Because people move around in the recording room, the acoustic impulse response is highly time-varying Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

26
**Acoustic Impulse Response (2)**

ESAT speech laboratory : T60 120 ms Paleis voor Schone Kunsten : T60 1500 ms Original speech signal : Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

27
**Acoustic Impulse Response : FIR or IIR ?**

If the acoustic impulse response is modeled as an FIR filter many hundreds to several thousands of filter taps are required an IIR filter filter order can be reduced, but still several hundreds of filter coefficients are required (=‘bad’ model for acoustic impulse response) Remark: IIR-filters good model for classical filters (LP,HP,BP,BS) hence FIR models are typically used in practice as they are guaranteed to be stable as adaptive filtering techniques are called for: FIR adaptive filters are easier than IIR adaptive filters Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

28
**AEC based on Adaptive Filtering**

Goal: Identify acoustic impulse response h[k] and subtract filtered loudspeaker signal from microphone signal Thanks to the adaptivity time-varying acoustics can be tracked AEC is ‘self-learning’ performance superior to performance of conventional techniques Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

29
**Adaptive Filtering Algorithms**

Algorithm: 2 steps Filter loudspeaker signal error signal indicates how close this signal is to recorded microphone signal Update filter: update depends on error signal filtered signal desired signal error signal Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

30
**Normalized Least Mean Square (NLMS)**

with L is the adaptive filter length, is the adaptation stepsize, is a regularization parameter and k is the discrete-time index Data filtering Filter update Circular data buffer Filter coefficients Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

31
**Control Algorithm ‘AEC is more than just an adaptive filter’ :**

adaptive filter is supplemented with control software, which mainly controls the adaptation speed (e.g. no adaptation during double-talk) In practice echo suppression is limited to 30 dB due to time-variance, non-linearities, finite filterlength postprocessing (e.g. center-clipping) Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

37
**Beamforming basics Background/history: antenna array design for RADAR**

Array elements are combined electronically such that: array can be steered towards specific direction higher directivity beam shaping is possible Beamforming for hands-free communication : focus beam on speech source(s) speech enhancement and dereverberation put spatial nulls in direction of noise sources noise reduction Classification: fixed beamforming: data-independent fixed filters gm[k] e.g. delay-and-sum, weighted-sum, filter-and-sum adaptive beamforming: data-dependent adaptive filters gm[k] e.g. LCMV-beamformer, Generalized Sidelobe Canceller Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

38
**Delay-and-sum beamforming (1)**

Microphone signals are delayed and summed together array can be virtually steered to angle Angular selectivity is obtained, based on constructive ( =) and destructive ( ) interference Uniform delay-and-sum beamforming implies Uniform array equal inter-microphone distance Uniformly distributed delays Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

39
**Delay-and-sum beamforming (2)**

Spatial directivity pattern H(,) for uniform DS-beamformer H(,) has sinc-like shape and is frequency-dependent M=5 microphones d=3 cm inter-microphone distance =60 steering angle fs=16 kHz sampling frequency Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

40
**Delay-and-sum beamforming (3)**

For an ambiguity, called spatial aliasing, occurs. This is analogous to time-domain aliasing where now the spatial sampling (=d) is too large. M=5, =60, fs=16 kHz, d=8 cm Spatial aliasing Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

41
**Filter-and-sum beamformer**

Better directivity patterns than DS-beamformer are obtained with weighted-sum and filter-and-sum beamformers e.g. Frequency-independent directivity pattern M=8 Logarithmic array L=50 =90 fs=8 kHz Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

42
**Adaptive beamforming Adaptive filter-and-sum structure:**

Minimize noise output power, while maintaining a chosen frequency response in look direction (and/or other linear constraints) LCMV = Linearly Constrained Minimum Variance minimize variance of output z[k] in order to avoid desired signal to be distorted or cancelled out, J linear constraints are added Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

43
**Generalized Sidelobe Canceller (1)**

GSC consists of three parts: Fixed (delay-and-sum) beamformer, in order to achieve spatial alignment of speech source speech reference Blocking matrix, placing spatial nulls in the direction of the speech source noise references Multi-channel adaptive filter with delay Postproc Simon Doclo DSP Everywhere…

**Generalized Sidelobe Canceller (2)**

Blocking matrix Ca : creating maximum M-1 independent noise references by placing spatial nulls in look-direction different possibilities: e.g. Griffiths-Jim, Walsh broadside Problems of GSC: impossible to reduce noise from look-direction reverberation effects cause signal leakage in noise reference adaptive filter is only updated when no speech is present !
