ABSTRACT
This paper presents a single FPGA implementation of a real­
time sound localization system using two microphones. The
implementation, utilizing a cross­correlation technique based
on a modified version of the phase transform, successfully
localizes sound sources in noisy environments with as low
an SNR as 10dB. Using the same algorithm and similar
hardware architecture, it is shown that up to 5 parallel sys­
tems (using 10 microphones), all real­time, can be imple­
mented on a single FPGA while only utilizing an estimated
77mW­108mW per microphone.
1. INTRODUCTION
Real­time sound localization is required for applications such
