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
