Digital Dynamic-Range Processor for Car Audio Applications

Document Thumbnail

The fluctuation ambient noise inside car cabins can heavily impair the perception of music and speech because it narrows the utilizable dynamic range. A dynamic range compressor with adaptively adjustable paraments can be used to considerably improve the perception quality. This paper describes the design and DSP implementation of a combined compressor/limiter/: expander/noise gate with variable parameters for car audio applications. Since the application field is highly cost-sensitive, considerable effort was devoted to achieving high code efficiency and a fast through put rate.
