The AD9271 integrates a complete eight-channel (octal) ultrasound receiver on a single chip. This level of integration allows medical equipment designers to reduce the size of the signal path for mobile ultrasound systems by 50% and lower power requirements by 25%, all while achieving noise levels and other performance metrics required in critical care settings. Specifically, the AD9271 analog front end replaces previous multi-chip discrete solutions and their associated requirements for interconnect and package space with a single chip that combines a low-noise amplifier, a variable-gain amplifier, an anti-aliasing filter, and a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter.
