G.728 is a ITU-T standard for speech coding operating at 16 kbps. Technology used is Low Delay Code Excited Linear Prediction LD-CELP. Delay of the codec is only 5 samples (0.625 ms). The linear prediction is calculated backwards with a 50th order LPC filter. The excitation is generated with gain scaled VQ. The standard was finished in 1992 in the form of algorithm exact floating point code. In 1994 a bit exact fixed point codec was released. G.728 passes low bit rate modem signals up to 2400 bit/s. Also network signaling goes through. The complexity of the codec is 30 MIPS. 2 kilobytes of RAM is needed for codebooks.
