Optimizing the Interface Between Ultrasound Systems and Transducers

Technical specifications impress engineers, but great performance impresses your customers. We understand that integration of our probe with your ultrasound system must result in great performance. Our extensive acoustics experience, simulation capabilities, and measurement resources are available to accelerate this critical part of a new probe project.

Our engineers will work with you to optimize the performance of our probe on your system. We can assist with:

  • Cable and tuning selection for electrical impedance matching and spectral shaping
  • Element aperture optimization for transmit and receive focusing
  • Unique electrical and acoustic performance measurements of prototype arrays for your application
  • Specification setting to address critical performance parameters

Because your success is our success, we are here to help throughout the entire integration process.
