Acoustic Micro-Imaging

Customer Case

The customer is a leader in the field of acoustic micro-imaging. They use pulse ultrasound to image non-human materials. The ultrasound frequency used is between 100 and 200 MHz, as the materials they study can handle these frequencies (one cannot normally use such high frequencies with human tissue).

The customer's PRF (Pulse Repeat Frequency) is approximately 4 KHz, with a PRI (Pulse Repeat Interval) of 250 ms. They need to capture approximately 2 ms (1,000 points) of data for each pulse.

The customer wants scope emulation software to allow verification of board operation without having to write software.

GaGe Case Solution

The CompuScope 8500 is ideal for this application. With a PCI throughput of 100 MB/s, the customer can easily transfer the captured data to the PC memory for each pulse and re-arm with plenty of time to spare (see the diagram).

GaGeScope PC oscilloscope software will allow the customer to do exactly what they asked: verify the operation of the CompuScope 8500 without writing any code.
