Ultrasound designers face a constant challenge to improve system performance and incorporate the latest technological advances that will help physicians detect disease, monitor patients and save lives.
Based on an expansive portfolio of embedded and analog technologies, TI products can improve the way medical professionals interpret results from their ultrasound scanner equipment. By optimizing the complete signal chain and increasing power efficiency, TI is enhancing the future of medical ultrasound innovation. In this blog post, I’ll discuss our latest reference designs through two key obstacles that ultrasound designers face: achieving a higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and attaining high efficiency by optimizing power consumption.
It is no secret that the fidelity of the signals in an ultrasound system directly impacts the quality of the generated image. Higher SNR enables higher-resolution images and allows for easier detection and diagnosis of issues by medical professionals.
TI reference designs for achieving higher SNR include:
High-efficiency power solutions for ultrasound scanners
Improving power efficiency in ultrasound scanners is critical in order to enable portability, optimize overall power consumption and reduce power-supply design complexity.
TI reference designs for improving power efficiency include:
TI’s extensive portfolio can provide complete, state-of-the-art solutions that maximize SNR, providing higher-quality images while simultaneously optimizing power efficiency and reducing design complexity.
