A Sixth-Rate, 3.8 kbps GSM-Like Speech Transceiver

Brooks, F.C.A, Yeap, B.L, Woodard, J.P and Hanzo, L. (1998) A Sixth-Rate, 3.8 kbps GSM-Like Speech Transceiver At ACTS'98, Greece. 08 - 11 Jun 1998. , pp. 647-652.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A 1.9 kbps Zinc-function excited, wave-form interpolated speech codec is proposed and its bit error sensitivity is analysed. This codec is incorporated in a standard GSM-like system, employing either convolutional or turbo coding. Ironically, the higher complexity turbo codec provides only a modest robustness gain over the standard convolutional code due to the short interleaver constraint imposed by the highly bandwidth-efficient speech codec.
