Ultrasound Scanners

Ultrasound System design resources and block diagram.

Description

TI solutions for medical ultrasound scanners help customers design products that can reproduce an image based on sound echoes from within the human body. Sub-system solution options and benefits include:

  • Over-current protection of transmit power supply by high-accuracy current monitors and data converters or integrated eFuse technology
  • Integrated analog front end (AFE) that includes low-noise amplifier, voltage controlled attenuator, programmable gain amplifier, third order low-pass filter, ADC with LVDS or JESD outputs and CW Doppler mixer that simplify the design of the low voltage receive path
  • Clocking solutions to:
  • o Synchronize ADCs and CW Doppler mixers that are within the AFE. o Synchronize power supplies allowing for simple band-pass filtering removing power supply switching noise on ground loops.
  • High accuracy and SNR signal conditioning and data conversion for Time-Gain Compensation and CW Doppler summing solutions
  • Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) used in the imaging system for Doppler processing, 2D, 3D and even 4D imaging as well as a host of post processing algorithms to increase functionality and performance
  • Wide variety of point-of-load power supply and sequencing solutions for multi-rail FPGAs and DSPs using discrete DC-DC converters and/or integrated PMICs and modules
