SLN-ALEXA-IOT microphone gain control

Hi,

We are facing problems with controlling gain of microphone. Our main suspect is SLN_DSP_SetGainFactor from SLN_inteligence toolbox. Because of lack of online documentation , can anyone share information how to control gain(volume) of input microphone to i.MX RT106x.

Regards,

pjd

Hello Pawel Dobrowolski

Regarding your question please see my comments below. 

Can you tell me what is the range of that gain and in which units is it?

There is not a defined range due to the natural behavior of the module. Going past a certain point will cause the signal to get distorted or clipped.

The units are gain shifts. 

Basically it's a 32Bit sample that is shifted left by the value given to the gain function, it will then perform DC offset and converted to 16Bit sample. 

Best Regards, 

Victor

Hi Pawel Dobrowolski,

we have a function that changes the gain below:

 

static int32_t pdm_to_pcm_dsp_init(uint8_t **memPool)

{

    int32_t dspStatus = kDspSuccess;

 

    dspStatus = SLN_DSP_Init(memPool, pvPortMalloc);

 

    if (kDspSuccess == dspStatus)

    {

        dspStatus = SLN_DSP_SetCaptureLength(memPool, PDM_SAMPLE_COUNT * PDM_CAPTURE_SIZE_BYTES);

    }

 

    if (kDspSuccess == dspStatus)

    {

        dspStatus = SLN_DSP_SetGainFactor(memPool, 3);

    }

 

    return dspStatus;

}

 

This function does not work runtime. The gain factor is set to be perfect for Far-Field support. We don’t document this function because we don’t expect the customer to reduce or increase the gain (because it’s configured for optimal performance).

 

The higher the number, the higher the gain. The gain is applied before the DC Offset which ensures it doesn’t lose valuable precise PCM data.

Could you please tell us how you are using the function?

Have a great day,
Kerry
