Abstract
(EN)
The diameters of an ultrasonic probe and an ultrasonic endoscope are decreased, and electrical connection in respect of a signal line extending from the ultrasonic vibrator is reliably and easily made. The ultrasonic probe comprises vibrator wiring pads (102) provided at the front end of an ultrasonic vibrator printed board (101) where signal patterns for signal transmission/reception of ultrasonic vibrators are formed, flexible printed board wiring pads (108) arranged in line along the longitudinal axis of the ultrasonic vibrator printed board (101), second signal patterns (106) connected between the vibrator wiring pads (102) and the flexible printed board wiring pads (108) and bent generally 90 degrees at intermediate portions, and a relay flexible printed board (121) connected to the flexible printed board wiring pads (108) and used to change the direction of the signal patterns to the longitudinal axis direction.

Les diamètres d'une sonde ultrasonore et d'un endoscope ultrasonore sont moindres, et un raccord électrique sur une ligne de signal s'étendant à partir du vibrateur ultrasonore est effectué de façon facile et fiable. La sonde ultrasonore comprend des plots (102) de câblage de vibrateur disposés à l'extrémité avant d'une plaque à circuits imprimés (101) de vibrateur ultrasonore où sont formés des motifs de signaux pour une transmission/réception de signal de vibrateurs ultrasonores; des plots de câblage de la plaque à circuits imprimés flexible (108) disposés en alignement le long de l'axe longitudinal de la plaque à circuits imprimés (101) de vibrateur ultrasonore; des seconds motifs de signaux (106) raccordés entre les plots de câblage du vibrateur (102) et les plots de câblage de la plaque à circuits imprimés flexible (108) et repliés généralement de 90 degrés à des espaces intermédiaires; et une plaque à circuits imprimés flexible de relais (121) raccordée aux plots de câblage de la plaque à circuits imprimés flexible (108) et utilisée pour changer la direction des motifs de signaux et les faire passer dans la direction de l'axe longitudinal.
