Modified Sparseness Controlled IPNLMS Algorithm Based on l_1, l_2 and l_∞ Norms

By Krishna Samalla Ch. Satyanarayana

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2013

In the context of Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), sparseness level of acoustic impulse response (AIR) varies greatly in mobile environments. The modified sparseness-controlled Improved PNLMS (MSC-IPNLMS) algorithm proposed in this paper, exploits the sparseness measure of AIR using l1, l2 and l∞ norms. The MSC-IPNLMS is the modified version of SC-IPNLMS which uses sparseness measure based on l1 and l2 norms. Sparseness measure using l1, l2 and l∞ norms is the good representation of both sparse and dense impulse response, where as the measure which uses l1 and l2 norms is the good representation of sparse impulse response only. The MSC-IPNLMS is based on IPNLMS which allocates adaptation step size gain in proportion to the magnitude of estimated filter weights. By estimating the sparseness of the AIR, the proposed MSC-IPNLMS algorithm assigns the gains for each step size such that the proportionate term of the IPNLMS will be given higher weighting for sparse impulse responses. For a less sparse impulse response, a higher weighting will be given to the NLMS term. Simulation results, with input as white Gaussian noise (WGN), show the improved performance over the SC-IPNLMS algorithm in both sparse and dense AIR.

Survey of Sparse Adaptive Filters for Acoustic Echo Cancellation

By Krishna Samalla G. Mallikarjuna Rao Ch.Stayanarayana

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2013

This paper reviews the existing developments of adaptive methods of sparse adaptive filters for the identification of sparse impulse response in both network and acoustic echo cancellation from the last decade. A variety of different architectures and novel training algorithms have been proposed in literature. At present most of the work in echo cancellation on using more than one method. Sparse adaptive filters take the advantage of each method and showing good improvement in the sparseness measure performance. This survey gives an overview of existing sparse adaptive filters mechanisms and discusses their advantages over the traditional adaptive filters developed for echo cancellation.
