A new signals coding framework based on empirical mode decomposition (EMD) is introduced. EMD breaks down any signal into a reduced number of oscillating components called intrinsic modes functions (IMFs). Based on IMF properties, different coding strategies are presented. No assumptions concerning the linearity or the stationarity are made about the signal to be coded. Results obtained on ECG signals are presented and compared to those of wavelet coding.
