When we talk with hands-free in a car or noisy lobby, the performance of the echo canceller degrade because background noise added to echo caused by the distance from mouth to microphone is relatively long. It gives a reason for necessity of noise-robust and high convergence speed adaptive algorithm. And if acoustic echo canceller operated not perfectly, residual signal going through the echo canceller to far-end speaker remains residual echo, which degrade quality of talk. To solve this problem, post-processing needed to remove residual echo ones more. In this paper, we propose a new acoustic echo canceller, which has noise robust and high convergence speed adaptive estimating echo path algorithm, linked with linear predictor and Wiener filter as a post-processor. By computer simulation, it is confirmed that the proposed algorithm shows better performance from acoustic interference cancellation (AIC) viewpoint.
