Simplification of an LMS implementation

Started by andrewstanfordjason 6 years ago3 replieslatest reply 6 years ago143 views

Hello, I have implemented an adaptive blocking matrix(ABM) as part of a robust generalised sidelobe canceller. This involves using LMS to cancel the output of a delay sum beamformer from each of the channels of the signals that formed the beam. This results in signals of just the noise(in theory), i.e. 

dsb = 0.0

for i in range(channel_count):

x[i] = apply_delay(x[I], delay[I]) #now all the signals are aligned to the signal of interest

dsb += x[i]

for i in range(channel_count):

noise[i] = lms_filter(apply_delay(x[i], N), dsb[i])

Where N is half the LMS filter length(this is to keep the filter causal).

The simplification I would like to perform is to reduce the LMS filter to an adaptive delay/advance and scale. The reduction would take the adaptive filter (which is essentially a many coefficient unconstrained FIR) and reduce it to two variables (theta(delay or advance time) and s(the scalar). It's worth noting that I am doing this in the frequency domain on frames.

If anyone has seen this kind of thing before or knows how to do it then I would be interested in hearing about it. Thanks

Yes, you can base your improved delay-and-scale filtering on an interpolating delay line.  I have an overview here that I use in my teaching:
