Receiver : acoustic modem

hello ,

  I have implemented receiver for detecting and decoding data frame
based FHSS. At the moment, I am feeding Rx with recorded wav file and it
works fine.
The problem is when i want to do online decoding by replacing wav source
with alsa source, I see nothing happening beyond frame sync.

if anyone has implemented modem based on acoustic , please guide me.

thanks in advance
Ram

Could it be that your wav file has integer samples with range 0…32768
(or signed)? The samples from the audio input are float between -1.0
and +1.0

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your response. wav file contains correct values within the
range -1:1.

My question is when i replace wav source block with Alsa source,Receiver
does not function.
I am not sure if it is timing issue because for frame synchronization
i use auto-correlation of two repeated preamble parts. Rx flowgraph
looks like:

   ALSA Source --> TIME SYNC --> DEMODULATION --> DEINTERLEAVER 

–>VITERBI DECODE --> CRC CHECK

any suggestions please

Thanks
Ram

Hello Raman,

Did you resolve your problem?
I’ve a similar problem: I need to implement an acoustic modem and I must
first deal with the problem of synchronization.

Can you help me?

Thanks
