Texas Instruments' TX810

Texas Instruments' TX810

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.
