LSF/LSP to LPC Conversion

Convert line spectral frequencies or line spectral pairs to linear prediction coefficients


Estimation / Linear Prediction



The LSF/LSP to LPC Conversion block takes a vector or matrix of line spectral pairs (LSPs) or line spectral frequencies (LSFs) and converts it to a vector or matrix of linear prediction polynomial coefficients (LPCs). When converting LSFs to LPCs, the block outputs match those of the lsf2poly function.

The block input can be an N-by-M matrix or an unoriented vector. Each column of the matrix is treated as a channel. When the input is an unoriented vector, the input is treated as one channel. Each input channel must be in the same format, which you specify in the Input parameter:

  • LSF in range (0 pi) — Vector of LSF values between 0 and π radians in increasing order. Do not include the guaranteed LSF values, 0 and π.

  • LSF normalized in range (0 0.5) — Vector of normalized LSF values in increasing order, (compute by dividing the LSF values between 0 and π radians by 2π). Do not include the guaranteed normalized LSF values, 0 and 0.5.

  • LSP in range (-1 1) — Vector of LSP values in decreasing order, equal to the cosine of the LSF values between 0 and π radians. Do not include the guaranteed LSP values, -1 and 1.

Dialog Box
