Introduction

SonixTABLET

The SonixTABLET SonixTABLET is a compact ultrasound system with a 19” touch screen that can be mounted from the ceiling or wall to preserve floor space. This unique system provides the same premium image quality as higher-end Ultrasonix models.

The SonixTABLET system is packaged with an Ultrasound Research Interface (URI). The URI is an interface that allows for:

  • The use of operational modes not available on a purely clinical system
  • The retrieval and modification of low-level parameters used to generate ultrasound images
  • The acquisition and storage of raw data in a variety of formats

In addition to the URI component, the SonixTABLET Research also has the ability to run special research tools for performing tasks such as:

  • Transducer prototyping
  • Connecting to the system through a network for parameter setting and data capture
  • Low-level ultrasound beam sequencing and control
  • Development of commercial ultrasound applications running on the Sonix platform

Here are some quick specifications that the researcher should be aware of before using the device for research:

  • 128 element transducers (64 on phased-arrays)
  • 256 transmit channels (128 on both positive and negative)
  • 64 receive channels
  • 40 MHz internal clock
  • 14-bit ADC
