These devices follow the award-winning AD9271, which when unveiled in April 2007, was the first device to integrate a complete octal ultrasound receiver on a single chip, and is used today in ultrasound equipment throughout the world. The AD927x offerings replace previous discrete solutions with a single integrated circuit that combines eight channels, each comprising a low-noise amplifier (LNA), a variable-gain amplifier (VGA), an anti-aliasing filter (AAF) and a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC).
“Analog Devices fully understands the challenges facing designers of next-generation high-performance and portable ultrasound systems, including the need to balance image quality and diagnostic capabilities with power requirements,” said Pat O’Doherty, healthcare segment director, Analog Devices. “The AD927x family offers a complete, optimized, flexible receiver solution for both cart-based and battery-powered designs.”
About the AD927x Family
The AD9272 offers the industry’s lowest input referred noise (0.75 nV/rtHz @ 5 MHz typical) when operating under real world conditions and 6 dB/rtHz better input dynamic range than competing devices. For portable ultrasound equipment, the AD9273 has industry-leading power dissipation of less than 100
