Design and implementation of a fixed point digital active noise controller headphone

Erkan, Fatih
In this thesis, the design and implementation of a Portable Feedback Active Noise Controller Headphone System, which is based on Texas Instruments TMS320VC5416PGE120 Fixed Point DSP, is described. Problems resulted from fixed-point implementation of LMS algorithm and delays existing in digital ANC implementation are determined. Effective solutions to overcome the aforementioned problems are proposed based on the literature survey. Design of the DSP based control card is explained and crucial points about analog-digital-mixed board design for noise sensitive applications are explained. Filtered input LMS algorithm, filtered input normalized LMS algorithm and filtered input sign-sign LMS algorithm are implemented as adaptation algorithms. The advantages and disadvantages of using modified LMS algorithms are indicated. The selection of the parameters of these algorithms is based on theoretical results and experiments. The real time performances of different adaptation algorithms are compared with each other as well as with a commercial analog ANC headphone under different types of artificial and natural noise signals. Moreover, practical conditions such as put on - put off case and dynamic range overflow case are handled with additional software implementations. It is shown that adaptive ANC systems improve the noise reduction significantly when the noise is within a narrow frequency range and this reduction can be applied to a wider frequency range. It is also shown that the problems of digitally implemented adaptive filters which are based on tracking capability, stability, dynamic range and portability can be fixed to challenge with the analog commercial ANC systems.


Design and realization of broadband instantaneous frequency discriminator
Pamuk, Gökhan; Yıldırım, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
n this thesis, RF sections of a multi tier instantaneous frequency measurement (IFM) receiver which can operate in 2 – 18 GHz frequency band is designed, simulated and partially realized. The designed structure uses one coarse tier, three medium tiers and one fine tier for frequency discrimination. A novel reflective phase shifting technique is developed which enables the design of very wideband phase shifters using stepped cascaded transmission lines. Compared to the classical phase shifters using coupled ...
Design of dual polarized wideband microstrip antennas
Yıldırım, Meltem; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a wideband dual polarized microstrip antenna is designed, manufactured and measured. Slot coupled patch antenna structure is considered in order to achieve the wideband characteristic. Although rectangular shaped slot coupled patch antennas are widely used in most of the applications, their utilization in dual polarized antenna structures is not feasible due to space limitations regarding the positioning of two separate coupling slots for each polarization. For a rectangular slot, the parame...
Design and implementation of a current source converter based active power filter for medium voltage applications
Terciyanlı, Alper; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
This research work is devoted to the design, development and implementation of a Current Source Converter (CSC) based Active Power Filter (APF) for Medium Voltage (MV) applications. A new approach has been proposed to the design of the CSC based APF for reducing the converter kVA rating considerably. This design approach is called the Selective Harmonic Amplification Method (SHAM), and is based on the amplification of some selected harmoniccurrent components of the CSC by the input filter, and the CSC contr...
Modelling and noise analysis of closed-loop capacitive sigma-delta mems accelerometer
Boğa, Biter; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
This thesis presents a detailed SIMULINK model for a conventional capacitive Σ-Δ accelerometer system consisting of a MEMS accelerometer, closed-loop readout electronics, and signal processing units (e.g. decimation filters). By using this model, it is possible to estimate the performance of the full accelerometer system including individual noise components, operation range, open loop sensitivity, scale factor, etc. The developed model has been verified through test results using a capacitive MEMS accelero...

Efe, Oğuzhan; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis work, a 3-stage ultra broadband amplifier operating in 2-18 GHz frequency band with gain 23 dB is designed, simulated and fabricated. The amplifier is based on cascaded, reactively terminated single stage distributed amplifier (CRTSSDA) concept. The idea of including reactive terminations to achieve broadband gain is investigasted and simulated. The simulated design is fabricated and measurements of the fabricated amplifier are compared with simulation results. Also practical experience on wo...
