Abstract : An improved time-interpolation method for digital time-domain beamformers is provided. The method determines an input channel value at a known fractional delay as a two-stage process. In a first stage, input channel parameters common to all beams and independent of the known fractional delay are determined. In a second stage, the input channel parameters are weighted and summed for each beam to determine the input channel value at the known fractional delay. Weighting of the parameters is based upon the known fractional delay and the frequency band of interest.
