Multiplierless sigma-delta modulation beam forming for ultrasound nondestructive testing


Beamforming techniques based on sigma-delta modulation (SDM) have been proposed to reduce the hardware complexity of conventional multi-bit digital delay-sum beamformer, in which beamforming operation is performed upon over-sampled single bit sequences obtained by applying SDM to the received signals from each array elements. In conventional single bit SDM… (More)
