Abstract : To provide alternative operation at 2.4 or 9.6 Kb/s bit rates, a multirate digital processor generates a data frame of 216 bits representing sync and voice encoded at both rates, with the 2.4 Kb/s embedded as a subset within the frame. Speech signal is transformed by linear prediction into coefficients and residual signals. The coefficients are transmitted similarly at both 2.4 and 9.6 Kb/s rates. However, the residual is processed into a simple pitch/hiss excitation signal for 2.4 Kb/s, but is processed into a Fourier transform of its baseband (250-1500 Hz) for 9.6Kb/s excitation signal transmission.
