The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) recommendations for dual-tone multifrequency (DTMF) signaling are not met by conventional DTMF detectors. We present an efficient DTMF detection algorithm based on the nonuniform discrete Fourier transform that meets all of the ITU recommendations. The key innovations are the use of two sliding windows and development of sophisticated timing tests. Our algorithm requires no buffering of input samples. To perform DTMF detection on n telephone channels, our algorithm requires approximately n MIPS on a digital signal processor (DSP), 75+30n words of data memory, and 1000 words of program memory. Using the new algorithm, a single fixed-point DSP can perform ITU-compliant DTMF detection on the 24 telephone channels of a T1 time-division multiple multiplexed telecommunications line.
