Global Ultrasound Pulser IC Market: Introduction
- An ultrasound pulser IC is a high-speed, high-voltage ultrasound transmitter pulser IC. The IC has a built-in damping circuit that generates fast return-to-zero waveforms.
- Ultrasound pulser ICs perform MOSFET gate clamping functions, which changes the output waveform amplitude
- An ultrasound pulser IC consists of a control logic circuit, MOSFET gate drive buffers, level translators, clamp circuits, and high-current, high-voltage MOSFETs as the ultrasound transmitter pulser output stage
- An ultrasound pulser IC is equipped with the HVCMOS technology for better performance
- Ultrasound pulser ICs are used in applications in medical ultrasound imaging, pulse waveform generators, sonar and radar systems, and piezoelectric and capacitive transducers
Increasing Use in Healthcare Industry to Drive Global Ultrasound Pulser IC Market
