Hitachi Solutions for Ultrasound Applications

Hitachi Solutions for Ultrasound Applications

Hitachi Semiconductors Micro Devices, HVMUX high voltage analog switches are market leading and in many ultrasound console and probe applications worldwide. They are also used in non destructive testing equipment. They are ideal for these specific applications which require low power consumption.

  • Medical Ultrasound Imaging IC Solutions – Hitachi integrated high-voltage transmitters include octal and quad pulsers which feature low-voltage input logic interface, level translators, MOSFET gate drive buffers, and high-voltage high-current P-channel and N-channel MOSFETs. Active transmit/receive switches, active ground clamps, floating voltage regulators, output blocking high-voltage diodes, noise-cut low-voltage diodes, active output termination, power-on reset function, and thermal protection are incorporated depending on the product. This high density facilitates downsizing and cost reduction
  • High Voltage Analog Front End (AFE) Switch Solutions – intended for the replacement of mechanical relays used with ultrasound probes with multiple transducers, these 16-channel devices reduce cost, improve performance and increase reliability
  • High Voltage Analog Switches – ideal for ultrasound multiplexer (MUX) applications, multichannel (8ch and 16ch versions available, 32ch under development)
  • High Voltage Linear Amplifiers – intended for high-end ultrasound equipment. The unique Hitachi design Class A-B HV ultrasound amplifier helps lower system cost and size by eliminating the need for external transformers and power resistors. Contact Hitachi America for more information.
