Project: Personal Earth Station (PES)

The aim of the project was to develop complete embedded software solution for voice/fax communication
for the PES
system. In this project, I was involved in complete software life cycle development including specifications, design document, coding, application interface with higher layers and testing. As a member of the DSP group, I worked on development of multi-channel Group 3 Fax modems (ITU-T recommendations V.21, V.24, V.27) on TMS320549 processor. Significant contributions includes
  • Design of ITU-T Recommendation V.29, V.21, V.27 transmitter and receiver in Matlab.
  • Development of fixed-point (in Q15 format) C code for V.29, V.27, V.21 multi-channel transmitter and receiver.
  • Development of a new scheme to combine up-sampling, down-sampling, filtering and base-band to pass-band conversion to reduce the execution time of the code. 
  • Porting of C code in assembly for TMS320C54x using Code Composer environment.
  • Optimization of assembly language code by utilizing the features of TMS320C54x
  • Integration of embedded fax solution into the Voice/Fax Daughter Card.
  • Lab Testing using Telegra fax analyzer and fax machines.
