New Ultrasound Receivers Could Boost Image Quality, Efficiency

Analog Devices Inc. has unveiled a pair of eight-channel ultrasound receivers that are expected to improve image quality and power efficiency for cart-based and handheld ultrasound systems. One, the AD9272, is for cart-based systems. It has a lower level of terminated noise than previous receivers, which enables better image quality.

The other, the AD9273, is the most power-efficient receiver for ultrasound systems, making them a fit for handheld systems, where efficient battery operation is so crucial. Both feature a serial port interface that allows system designers to customize the noise and power performance for any given imaging mode, probe, or power requirement. "One of the things we've been able to do is greatly reduce the number of components used in the receiver section of ultrasound systems," says Scott Pavlik, strategic marketing manager for the healthcare segment at Analog Devices. âEURoeThat means a reduction of space, cost, and power needed to process ultrasound signals without compromising imaging quality and system performance.âEUR
