This paper presents an area- and power-efficient application-specified integrated circuit (ASIC) for 3-D forward-looking intravascular ultrasound imaging. The ASIC is intended to be mounted at the tip of a catheter, and has a circular active area with a diameter of 1.5 mm on the top of which a 2-D array of piezoelectric transducer elements is...

The design of ultrasound scanning systems for applications such as breast cancer detection is a challenging task, especially when the number of sources and receivers increases and they become spread over a large surface. In order to determine the number of transducers and above all their position, several approaches could be followed. A simple...

This paper presents a power- and area-efficient 9-channel LNA array for piezoelectric ultrasound transducers to enable real-time 3D imaging with miniature endoscopic and catheter-based probes. In view of the relatively low impedance of piezoelectric transducers, the LNA is implemented as a capacitive feedback voltage amplifier, rather than a...
