A noise-estimation algorithm is proposed for highly non-stationary noise environments. The noise estimate is updated by averaging the noisy speech power spectrum using time and frequency dependent smoothing factors, which are adjusted based on signal-presence probability in individual frequency bins. Signal presence is determined by computing the ratio of(More)
A noise estimation algorithm is proposed for highly nonstationary noise environments. The noise estimate is updated by averaging the noisy speech power spectrum using a time and frequency dependent smoothing factor, which is adjusted based on signal presence probability in subbands. Signal presence is determined by computing the ratio of the noisy speech(More)
In this paper, we present a novel architecture for a shared FFT/IFFT especially for OFDM transceiver applications, that can be dynamically configured to optimize the power consumption based on the operating scenario. This exploits the fact that the bit width needed to meet the required packet error rate varies across different operating scenarios while the(More)
