Tim MIT dan Tim Delta Sigma Terpilih Sebagai Finalis-16th LSI Design Contest 2013

Pada tanggal 15 Maret 2013 Tim MIT dan Tim Delta Sigma Terpilih Sebagai Finalis-16th LSI Design Contest 2013. Dan hari Rabu kemarin tanggal 27 Maret 2013 kedua Tim dari STEI berangkat ke University of Ryukyus, Okinawa, Jepang untuk mempresentasikan karya-karyanya didepan dewan juri. Adapun daftar anggota timnya yaitu:

MIT (Muhammads In Team):
1. Muhammad Firmansyah Kasim (13209041)
2. Fadhli Zakiy (13209053)
3. Muhammad Fahreza (13209015)

Judul karya: Algorithm, Real-Time Architecture and Implementation of Adaptive General Spectral Subtraction
Abstrak singkat: A common noise cancellation algorithm is Spectral Subtraction (SS) method. In this paper, we propose a new SS method: Adaptive General Spectral Subtraction (AGSS) method that can adapt to small change in noise. We implement AGSS into hardware-software co-design. The software is to control audio codec, while the hardware has a role to do the whole AGSS process. In the hardware implementation, we propose small and fast square root and divider blocks. Our hardware design utilizes 5086 logic elements or 299.2 in the 50 XOR normalization units and additional 2.18kB memory. Latency of the hardware is 2.48μs or 159.1 normalization units with 87.54MHz maximum frequency. Moreover, implementation of AGSS process in hardware also gives speed-up up to 13000 times compared to its software implementation. Hence, our design provides a high-quality, small, and fast noise cancellation design.

Judul karya: Design and Implementation of Real Time Noise Cancelling System Based on Spectral Subtraction Method
Abstrak singkat: Noise cancelling system is a kind of signal processing module which function is to remove the noise in a signal. In this paper, a digital signal noise cancelling is designed based on Spectral Subtraction Method which cancels the noise in frequency domain by estimating the noise energy spectral from a noisy input. That method is performed in frequency domain with polar vector number, thus a time to frequency domain and rectangular to polar transformer with each of their complement is needed to perform the noise cancelling operation. The noise cancelling system is expected to be able to perform a real-time noise cancellation, that a full-hardware system implementation is considered a pretty good choice for a high speed system even though it is very challenging to implement such complex system this way.
