Implement A-law compressor for source coding
The A-Law Compressor block implements an A-law compressor for the input signal. The formula for the A-law compressor is
where A is the A-law parameter of the compressor,
V is the peak signal magnitude for x, log is
the natural logarithm, and sgn is the
The most commonly used A value is 87.6.
The input can have any shape or frame status. This block processes each vector element independently.
- A value
The A-law parameter of the compressor.
- Peak signal magnitude
The peak value of the input signal. This is also the peak value of the output signal.
