A new transportable device for computerized infant cry analysis is presented, which uses digital signal processing techniques and allows quick and complete evaluation of the most important parameters of infant cry. The procedures used to calculate the fundamental frequency (F0) and the formants (F1, F2, F3) are described in detail. The system has proved to be useful in functional neurodevelopmental assessment of infants affected by CNS diseases and it is valid for use within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
