The TX810 is the industry's first integrated, eight-channel,
transmit/receive (T/R) switch for ultrasound systems. The device integrates a
protection diode bridge and clamp diodes for each of its eight channels to
prevent the high-voltage pulses of the transmitter from damaging the receive
electronics of the ultrasound system. The device addresses designers' need to
build smaller portable ultrasound systems, while speeding time to market. In
addition, the TX810 saves more than 50 percent board space over discrete
solutions in portable to mid-range ultrasound systems, and the component
reduction and easier handling brings higher reliability to designs. Texas
Instruments says it's first to market with integrated T/R switch facilitating
portability by saving over 50 percent board-space.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administrationís recent backup camera mandate could open the door to more vehicle innovations, including better graphical displays, 360-degree camera views, and the increased use of Ethernet.
With support from National Instruments, a group of dedicated students from Connally High School in Austin, where more than 50% of the students are at risk of not graduating, have created a successful robotics team that is competing in the FIRST World Championships.
