Abstract : The patent provides a method and system for companding ('compressing' the levels which represent small difference voltages and 'expanding' the levels which represent large difference voltages) the coded difference levels in a delta pulse code modulation system. It provides a companded delta pulse code modulation system wherein the signal-to-noise ratio is higher than has been attained in previous systems. It still provides a delta pulse code modulation system which uses only linear elements.
