Components, Hardware & Interconnects   Analog Devices Inc.'s AD9670 Octal Ultrasound Receiver   Analog Devices Inc. introduces the industry's first octal (eight-channel) ultrasound receiver with on-chip digital I/Q demodulation and decimation filtering. Because of the embedded demodulation and decimation feature, ADI's AD9670 is the first ultrasound receiver able to condition eight channels of data from RF to a baseband frequency, reducing the processing load on the system FPGA (field-programmable gate array) by at least 50 percent compared to other receivers. The AD9670 also integrates a low-noise amplifier, variable gain amplifier, anti-aliasing filter, and a 14-bit, A/D converter with the industry's highest sample rate (125 MSPS) and best SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance (75 dB) for enhanced ultrasound image quality. The new octal receiver is the latest addition to Analog Devices' award-winning ultrasound receiver portfolio and is designed for mid- to high-end portable and cart-based ultrasound systems.

Lift Buddy rocks

NO RATINGS
I like that Lift Buddy (slide 4)--we could use a modified version around here. I wish firewood hauling tool makers would integrate the lift function into their products. Aside from log bags, they make wheelbarrow-like devices something like this, but those are worthless on anything but flat surfaces, and tough to control even there. Incorporating this could at least help loading and unloading at both ends.
