Title (EN) MULTI-LEVEL PULSER AND RELATED APPARATUS AND METHODS
(FR) GÉNÉRATEUR D'IMPULSIONS À NIVEAUX MULTIPLES, ET APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods are provided directed to a device, including at least one ultrasonic transducer, a multi-level pulser coupled to the at least one ultrasonic transducer; the multi-level pulser including a plurality of input terminals configured to receive respective input voltages, an output terminal configured to provide an output voltage, and a signal path between a first input terminal and the output terminal including a first transistor having a first conductivity type coupled to a first diode and, in parallel, a second transistor having a second conductivity type coupled to a second diode.
(FR) L'invention concerne des appareils et des procédés concernant un dispositif, comprenant au moins un transducteur ultrasonore, un générateur d'impulsions à niveaux multiples couplé aux(s) transducteur(s) ultrasonore(s) ; le générateur d'impulsions à niveaux multiples comprenant une pluralité de bornes d'entrée conçues pour recevoir des tensions d'entrée respectives, une borne de sortie conçu pour fournir une tension de sortie, et un chemin de signal entre une première borne d'entrée et la borne de sortie comprenant un premier transistor présentant un premier type de conductivité couplé à une première diode et, en parallèle, un second transistor présentant un second type de conductivité, couplé à une seconde diode.
