Ultrasound Imager at Gigahertz Frequencies Enables Breakthrough Research
Forget optics, forget large form factors, forget high power requirements. Our chip-based ultrasound imaging technology is fast, detailed, and ridiculously small.
Here’s how we make your nematode research better
Ultrasound Instead of Light:
Each pixel sends ultrasound images and analyzes the signal amplitude after it bounces off the surface of the chip
Large and Expandable Resolution:
The imager comes standard with 128×128 pixels; they can be placed in an array to create an imaging area of any size
Low Power Requirements:
Tiny amounts of electricity are required to run the chip and send and receive the ultrasound waves
More Data than Light:
Ultrasonic wavelengths reveal more than visible wavelengths, particularly for living samples
More than just an Imager:
Image data processing with deep neural nets produce rich data outputs.
Image Chip Technical Specifications:
Ultrasound waves bounce off the surface of the chip and are recorded as they return. Reflection amplitude is interpreted as image.
Imaging region per image chip is 6.4mm X 6.4mm
Frame rate of 4-10 frames/second
Operating temperature range 0C to 40C
High 128×128 pixel resolution per image chip
Overall unit size: 180mm x 140mm x 35mm
