256 Channel Ultrasound Image Processing

In ultrasound, channel count translates directly into higher resolution and depth -- both critical factors in detection and identification of issues. For these functions, the Kintex® UltraScale™ family doubles the DSP per logic cell ratio, for much higher signal processing capabilities per device. High speed serial transceivers provide a power efficient and fast interface to JESD204B compatible Analog front end components, significantly reducing the need for parallel IO, and thus also reducing power.

Solution Summary and Benefits

  • Highest signal processing for size and power increases ultrasound resolution and permits lower latency
  • Highest design productivity with Vivado® High Level Synthesis and efficient UltraScale architecture fabric to reduce design cycle time by months
  • Lower power through the use of co-optimized power reduction techniques, BRAM power gating, and fine-grained ASIC-like clocking

UltraScale Architecture Benefits

  • Massive I/O Bandwidth
    • JESD204B capable transceivers for fastest ADC and DAC interfaces
    • High Speed DDR4 memory interfaces
    • Hardened PCIe Gen 1/2/3 controller for low latency interface
  • Massive Data Flow & Routing
    • Memory cascading permits efficient implementation of input wide, multi-channel signal buffers without affecting routing, even in a single chip 256 channel implementation
    • Highly parallel processing of signals for minimal delay
  • ASIC-like Clocking
    • Higher utilization permits the use of a smaller device
  • Fastest DSP Processing
    • More Efficient DSP block reduces total number of DSP blocks needed to implement design, lowering power
  • Power Management
    • Integration from 4 devices to 2
    • Fine grain power gating
  • Productivity
    • Vivado Design Suite HLS for fast signal processing design
