Keywords: Implementation of Audio signal

Audio coding is the technology to represent audio in digital form with as few bits as possible while maintaining the intelligibility and quality required for particular application. Interest in audio coding is motivated by the evolution to digital communications and the requirement to minimize bit rate, and hence conserve bandwidth. There is always a tradeoff between compression ratio and maintaining the delivered audio quality and intelligibility. Audio coding is widely used in application such as digital broadcasting, Internet audio or music database to reduce the bit rate of high quality audio signal without comprising the perceptual quality. In this dissertation work Design and implementation of a MPEG Lossless audio codec using wavelet transform has been proposed. The major issues concerning the development of audio codec are choosing optimal wavelets for audio signals, decomposition level in the digital wavelet transform and thresholding criteria for coefficient truncation which is the basis to provide compression ratio for audio with suitable peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR), wavelet packet compression technique has also been used to compare the performanceof audio codec using wavelet transform. A psychoacoustic model is used to improve the quality of audio signal. The proposed audio codec has been implemented on DSK6713 Starter Kit using MATLAB-7.3 and Link to Code Composer Studio and various audio signals of different time duration have been tested. Result obtained show that the proposed codec improves quality of the reconstructed audio signal.
