Texas Instruments AFE5818EVM
The AFE5818EVM is a highly integrated Analog Front-End (AFE) solution specifically designed for ultrasound systems in which high performance and small size are required. The AFE5818EVM integrates a complete time-gain-control (TGC) imaging path and a continuous wave Doppler (CWD) path. It also enables users to select one of various power/noise combinations to optimize system performance. Therefore, the AFE5818EVM is a suitable ultrasound analog front end solution not only for high-end systems, but also for portable systems. This EVM requires the TSW1400EVM for LVDS data capture and evalution. The TSW1400EVM is purchased seperately and requires the HSDCPro software to function.
