Medical ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to view internal structures inside the body, such as internal organs, blood vessels, and developing fetuses in the womb. Ultrasound technology is in high demand as it is a less invasive, less expensive diagnostic method than imaging techniques such as MRIs or CT scans. Advances in integrated technology have allowed the introduction of portable ultrasound machines that provide fast and accurate readings. The ability to cut out the time needed to set up larger, more expensive machines is important for patients with very serious conditions, such as life-threatening hemorrhages.
Our power solutions offer small form factors, low power consumption, and high efficiency that improve reliability and reduce size and cost for ultrasound systems. As the medical ultrasound market trends increase the number of piezoelectric transducers in the probe head, our solutions are ideal by eliminating any safety concerns with high-voltage DC lines on the cables.
MPS’s DC/DC power modules offer the smallest and most efficient, cost-effective solution to power up the system.
