Title (EN) ULTRASOUND PROBE WITH MULTILINE DIGITAL MICROBEAMFORMER
(FR) SONDE À ULTRASONS DOTÉE D'UN MICRO FORMEUR DE FAISCEAUX NUMÉRIQUES À LIGNES MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) An ultrasound probe contains an array transducer and a microbeamformer coupled to elements of the array. The microbeamformer comprises analog to digital converters which convert received echo signals to digital echo signals, a plurality of digital delay circuits which produce a plurality of selectably delayed digital echo signals for a plurality of digital multiline echo signals, and a plurality of digital summers which combine the selectably delayed digital echo signals to produce a plurality of digital multiline echo signals in response to a single transmit event.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une sonde à ultrasons qui comporte un transducteur de réseau et un micro formeur de faisceaux couplé à des éléments du réseau. Le micro formeur de faisceaux comprend des convertisseurs analogique-numérique qui convertissent des signaux d'écho reçus en signaux d'écho numériques, une pluralité de circuits de retard numérique qui produisent une pluralité de signaux d'écho numériques retardés de manière sélective pour une pluralité de signaux d'écho à lignes multiples numériques, et une pluralité d'additionneurs numériques qui combinent les signaux d'écho numériques retardés de manière sélective en vue de produire une pluralité de signaux d'écho à lignes multiples numériques en réponse à un événement d'émission unique.
