Peter M Seligman, Richard C Dowell, Peter J Blamey: Multi-peak speech procession. Cochlear, The University of Melbourne, Gottlieb Rackman & Reisman, March 17, 1992: US05095904 (281 worldwide citation)

An improved pulsatile system for a cochlear prosthesis is disclosed. The system employs a multi-spectral peak coding strategy to extract a number, for example five, of spectral peaks from an incoming acoustic signal received by a microphone. It encodes this information into sequential pulses that ar ...
