The coefficients of an echo canceller with a near-end section and a far-end section are usually updated with the same updating scheme, such as the LMS algorithm. In this paper we propose a novel scheme for echo cancellation that is based on the minimization of two different cost functions, i.e., one for the near-end section and a different one for the far-end section. Two approaches are addressed and only one of them lead to a substantial improvement in performance over the LMS algorithm when it is applied to both sections of the echo canceller. The proposed scheme is also shown to be robust to noise variations, which is not the case for the LMS algorithm.
