## What is Goertzel algorithm?

The Goertzel algorithm is a Digital Signal
Processing technique that provides a means for
efficient evaluation of individual terms of the
Discrete Fourier Transform.

A basic Goertzel
Before you can do the actual Goertzel, you must
do some preliminary calculations:
1. Decide on the sampling rate.
2. Choose the block size, N.
3. Precompute one cosine and one sine term.
4. Precompute one coefficient.

Sampling rate:

## The number of samples carried per second is

called sample rate.
by the application. For example, in telecom
applications, it's common to use a sampling rate
of 8kHz (8,000 samples per second).

Block size:
Goertzel block size N is like the number of points
in an equivalent FFT. It controls the frequency
resolution (also called bin width).
For example, if your sampling rate is 8kHz and N
is 100 samples, then your bin width is 80Hz.

calculate Q0, Q1, and Q2.
Q0 = coeff * Q1 - Q2 + sample
Q2 = Q1
Q1 = Q0
After running the per-sample equations N times,
it's time to see if the tone is present or not.

Magnitude calculation:
real = (Q1 - Q2 * cosine)
imag = (Q2 * sine)
(Magnitude)2 = (real)2+(imag)2

An optimized Goertzel
The optimized Goertzel requires less
computation than the basic one, at the expense
of phase information.
The per-sample processing is the same, but the
end of block processing is different. Instead of
computing real and imaginary components, and
then converting those into relative magnitude
squared, you directly compute the following:
(Magnitude)2=(Q1)2+(Q2)2-Q1*Q2*coeff

Implementation
(1) The first stage calculates an intermediate sequence
S(n).

## (2) The second stage applies the following filter to S(n),

producing output sequence Y(n).

Implementation
The Z transform of the first filter stage given in equation

## The Z transform of the second filter stage given in equation

The combined transfer function of the cascade of the two filter stages
is then

Detection of specific frequencies in audio signals.

DTMF Signaling
In a DTMF signaling system a combination of
two frequency tones represents a specific digit,
character (A, B, C or D) or symbol (* or #).
Two types of signal processing are involved:
Coding or generation.
Decoding or detection.
For coding, two sinusoidal sequences of finite
length are added in order to represent a digit,
character or symbol as shown in the following
example.

## N = 205 fs = 8kHz The decimal values are divided by 2 to be represented in

Q15 format. This has to be taken into account during implementation

## DTMF Tone Detection

Detection of tones can be achieved by using a
bank of filters or using the Discrete Fourier
Transform (DFT or FFT).
However, the Goertzel algorithm is more efficient
for this application.
The Goertzel algorithm is derived from the DFT
and exploits the periodicity of the phase factor,
exp(-j*2k/N) to reduce the computational
complexity associated with the DFT, as the FFT
does.

## With the Goertzel algorithm only 16 samples of

the DFT are required for the 16 tones
