MP3 Codec
Brad Erwin and Mary Lou Kesse
Advisors: Dr. I. S. Ahn and Dr. T. L. Stewart

This project is a study in data compression, specifically the MPEG I Layer III algorithms. The first phase of the project explored elementary signal processing and compression encoding and decoding techniques using MATLAB. Following this, most of the MPEG decoding scheme was coded in ANSI-C and cross-compiled into assembly for the Texas Instruments C6xDSP processor in phase two. Finally, phase three completed a manufacturing feasibility study on the project with direct comparison to the Diamond Multimedia Rio MP3 decoder which is currently on the market. The whole project was intended to take a concept through the steps of becoming a worthwhile product for sale.
