Ultrasound Device

A medical ultrasound device uses high-frequency sound waves to make an image of a person’s internal body structures which is displayed on a screen and can be printed.

Integrating FTDI chips into a medical ultrasound device would typically serve as a connection interface between the ultrasound machine and a computer or other digital device via USB. This bridge enables the transmission of ultrasound data from the machine to the computer for further analysis, storage or display purposes.

Key features of an ultrasound device include:

    • Real-time imaging
    • Portability
    • Cost-effective
    • Enhanced Images
    • Non-invasive

A key FTDI product which can be integrated into the Ultrasound device is our SuperSpeed FT600Q/FT601Q SuperSpeed IC which has the following key features:

    • USB 3.0 Super Speed (5Gbps) transfer
    • Supports USB Bulk Transfer (transfer large amounts of data with error-free delivery)
    • Supports 2 parallel slave FIFO bus protocols 245 and FIFO mode, FT601 with 32 bit parallel interface has a data bursting rate up to 400MB/second
    • Supports 4 IN channels and 4 OUT channels on FIFO bus connectivity
    • Built-in 16kB FIFO data buffer RAM
    • Supports Remote Wakeup capability
    • Supports multi voltage I/O: 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V
    • Configurable GPIO support
    • Internal LDO 1.0V regulator
    • Integrated power-on-reset circuit
    • User programmable USB descriptors
    • Supports Battery Charging spec. BC1.2 battery charging detection
    • Available as FT600-16bit / FT601-32bit FIFO interface
    • Industrial operating temperature range: -40 to 85C
    • Available in compact Pb-free QFN-76(32bit) and QFN56(16bit) packages (both RoHS compliant)

The block diagram shows how FTDI’s FT601Q can be integrated into this typical application.
