where to get MELPe with 600 bps

Started by Unknown February 2, 2007
Hello, I sent a request to get MELPe through s5066.nc3a.nato.int two
months ago, but I did not receive a reply. Is there another way to the
MELPe with 600 bps. Could someone in the USA share the updated MELPe
code with me? Please sent the code to

kathyz@torreypinestechnologies.com

or mail the code to

1. AFAIK MELPe 1200/600 is proprietary to Compandent. 2. Voice coders below 2400 bps are subject to US export regulations. I don't think you will find a code. Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Design Consultant http://www.abvolt.com

I am a US citizen and my company in US works for the defense contract, there should be no export problem at all. MELPe should be royalty-free as long as the product is used for the defence contract.

Ask Oded. I'm sure he'll be thrilled to give you all the goodies for free... (http://www.compandent.com/aboutoded.htm)

MELPe - Enhanced Mixed-Excitation Linear Predictive Vocoder
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MELPe- Enhanced Mixed-Excitation Linear Predictive (MELP) vocoder, known 
as military standard MIL-STD-3005 and NATO STANAG 4591, is a triple-rate 
low rate coder that operates at 2400, 1200 and 600 bps. The Compandent's 
MELPe vocoder suite (a.k.a MELPe++ or MELPe-Plus-Plus) includes also 
compressed bit-stream transcoding between the rates as well as optional 
Noise Pre-Processor. MELPe's performance is demonstrated in Tables 1-3 
below, and c54xx & c55xx MELPe Package Fact Sheet & c64xx MELPe Package 
Fact Sheet are also available. See also Compandent MELPe FAQ. Compandent 
offers low-cost Data-Terminal Equipment (DTE) such as FLEXI-232 for 
interfacing vocoders such as MELPe with external devices such as modems.

Compandent Inc. has participated in the research, development and 
implementation of the Enhanced Mixed-Excitation Linear Predictive 
(MELPe) vocoder, and utilized its savvy expertise in speech coding and 
DSP to take the MELPe to the next level, the Compandent MELPe suite. In 
addition, Compandent provides various software and hardware related to 
the MELPe vocoder.


Compandent's MELPe is better than the standard reference!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Compandent's MELPe (MELPe-Plus-Plus) produces better quality than the 
standard reference! Compandent has been supporting and improving the 
MELPe real-time implementation, and has found and fixed numerous bugs in 
it, many of these bugs could not be discovered by simply processing the 
standard Test Vectors, rather than by comprehensive process of analyzing 
and optimizing the code and testing it under wide variety of scenarios 
and conditions conducted by Compandent's speech coding and DSP experts. 
We can show you examples where the standard reference produces hoarse 
speech or annoying clicks while Compandent's MELPe (MELPe++) produces 
much better sounding and cleaner speech. Therefore Compandent's MELPe 
(MELPe++) is in fact better than the standard reference! Compandent has 
also greatly improved and optimized the code. Compandent has ported 
MELPe to various DSPs by Texas Instruments such as TMS320c54xx, 
TMS320c55xx, TMS320c64xx, and OMAP.

Compandent also provides MELPe related DSP software & hardware in 
various COTS form factors and platforms, including multi-channel & 
multi-thread POSIX (Portable Operating System Interface) compliant 
software running on various platforms such as Unix, Linux, Windows PC, 
MacOS, etc.. Such implementations are suitable for applications such as 
PDA, pocket PC, laptop, cell-phones, VoIP, satellite communications, 
secure voice, secure radio, Software Defined Radios (SDR) or 
software-programmable radio, STE (Secure Terminal Equipment), JTRS and 
MIDS terminals.
