High Frequency Beamformer Design with matched Transducer Array

It is the aim of this internship to develop and perform cost-analysis on a set of manufacturing protocols for batch production of high frequency annular ultrasound imaging arrays. To our knowledge this would represent the first time that such arrays have designed for high-volume (2000/wk) production, making the project highly novel. Once the process is developed, five of the arrays will be prototyped and their performance evaluated. The intern will test and improve on the manufacturing protocol and analyze the process for cost, yield and inter-device uniformity. He will also run a number of performance tests to evaluate the array design. The project will position Daxsonics Ultrasound to bid for an eventual production contract on the arrays
