Implementation the active noise control technology using Digital Signal Processing (DSP) core is presented. The case of airborne noise for EPSON projector fan is studied. The noise source ranking based on separate running method has been implemented to reveal the most significant noise source among three fans incorporated into multimedia projector. A short duct system containing noise cancelling speaker, reference and error microphones and DSP board with ported adaptive feed forward algorithm to cancelling critical tonal components of the fan noise were applied. The suppression of 6…10 dB for airborne noise of the fan in multimedia projector at tonal frequencies was obtained.
