Recurrence Shifting for Patients with High Frequency Hearing Loss Jack Ho, Joseph Yuen, Nate Werbekes, Kuya Takami Advisor: Thomas Yen, Ph. D. Outline Criteria Abstract discover greatest and least frequencies patient can hear gets whole scope of what ordinary people can hear packs and moves this extent to fit inside patients listening to range sufficiently little to fit on or in ear low power utilization agreeable and stylishly satisfying Our gathering utilizes computerized signal preparing chips from Texas Instruments to make an enhanced listening to gadget for patients with sensorineural listening to misfortune (otherwise called high recurrence listening to loss).  Our gadget will first find out the most extreme and least recurrence that the individual is equipped for hearing.  Once these qualities are known, the gadget will pack and move every one of the sounds a common human can hear into the hindered scope of our patient.  This semester we wanted to assemble the equipment to control info and yield, and take in the advancement unit which will program the genuine DSP chip.  The DSP chip we have chosen, the C5509, is intended for use with sound flags and has an implicit ADC.  We chose to utilize LabVIEW set up of the improvement pack to develop a working model of the equipment. Idea (a) Block 2 Another strategy is b lock-based time space pitch moving procedure (transposition). (a) shows input signal split into pieces; (b) for a down pitch shift, input squares are truncated by a whole number of periods to make a sign of shorter length; (c) for an up pitch shift, input pieces are covered and added to expand signal span amid the count of the opposite exchange capacity . This technique could move the recurrence without changing the rhythm of a sign. Since this technique does not require count of recurrence area signal utilizing Fourier Transform , this strategy can change a sign speedier . (b) Block 2 Future Work (c) manufacture stage learn advancement and revamp code for its utilization change over all discourse sounds to "listening to fovea" make diverse modes for various situations conservative equipment to resemble a blue-tooth headset have the gadget work with ear to keep up sound confinement capacity work with psychoacoustics to advance becoming aware of most critical sounds Time moving of covering obstructs; (a) delineates an info signal split into 3 covering squares; (b) pieces are moved forward so as to expand signal length; (c) pieces are moved back so as to abatement signal term ( One approach to play out this operation is resampling . By playing out a Fourier change work the sign is changed over from the time area to the recurrence space. A sign in the recurrence area could be moved or compacted in the recurrence space so that the all the discourse recurrence reach could fit inside the recurrence scope of a man with sensorineural listening to misfortune. Moving a sign in the recurrence area would not bring about development in the time space; nonetheless, it would bring about a cover of specific frequencies. Then again, packing inside the recurrence space would not bring about a cover of frequencies; it would prompt a development of the sign in the time area. Foundation A stage vocoder strategy was utilized for the alteration of the recurrence in recurrence area. The operation of the vocoder is isolating the first sound sign to shorter casing, and performs control in the recurrence space utilizing Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT), which is the discrete Fourier change of a short, covering and easily windowed piece of tests. Signals in recurrence area frequencies are altered by changing the plentifulness and period of recurrence. At that point the sign is resynthesized by changing over the sign back to the time area utilizing the opposite STFT, which is the reverse Fourier change on every lump and including the subsequent waveform pieces. Conductive Hearing Loss             -in center or external ear             -wax, contamination, or outside article in way             -hoses all frequencies Sensorineural Hearing Loss             -harm to inward ear or sound-related nerve             -plenty of causes, some are more basic                   *birth absconds, noisy commotions, maturing             -loss of certain recurrence groups (generally high)             -no measure of intensification will help  Current Devices: Typical Hearing Aid        -works by opening up all sounds        - pointless enhancement of most recurrence groups        - doesn\'t assist those with sensorineural listening to misfortune Cochlear insert        - works by breaking down sound and straightforwardly animating the appropriate district of the cochlea        - constrained by number of stimulators        - normally poor general nature of "sound"  References Benson, V., & Marano, M.A. (1995).

Recovered on February twelfth, 2008 Design Problem Statement Hearing test for recurrence: A LabView program runs a "snappy" recurrence clear from around 10 to 20k Hz, where the client pushes a catch to demonstrate when they can first hear the sign and when they first can\'t hear the signal.  The system is then changed to a "moderate" point by point mode where it does a slower and better tuned clear around each of the two begin/stop frequencies.  Design a listening to gadget that will move or pack the sound range a typical human can hear with a specific end goal to permit the client to hear frequencies that they no more hear because of sensorineural listening to misfortune. Our gadget will locate the base and most extreme frequencies every individual can hear and will improve the typical data transfer capacity to fit inside this extent. For information, we will utilize an electrot condenser amplifier for its minor size.  Sound sign is gotten by the receiver will be associated with the C5509a DSP chip , which has an inherent simple to advanced converter . At that point the computerized sign is to be changed, in methods for packing or moving the recurrence , so that all the discourse recurrence will be in listening to scope of the individual with sensorineural listening to misfortune. After the change , the handled computerized sign is changed over to a simple sign utilizing the TLV320DAC32 Low-Power Stereo DAC, which will send the sign to a yield, TPA6100A2 Headphone Audio Amplifier Acknowledgments The creators might want to thank consultant Dr. Thomas Yen for his constant help all through the semester.
