Ti launches embedded processors for medical imaging AP News: Recently, Ti announced the launch of more than 15 special embedded processor product series, which can help doctors and clinicians obtain faster and more accurate diagnostic results. At the same time, it can also help medical imaging equipment manufacturers develop new medical technologies and improve the miniaturization and portability of existing products. These processors are mainly used for various medical imaging applications, including ultrasound, CT, positron emission tomography (PET), nuclear magnetic resonance (MRI), digital X-ray, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other newly developed medical technologies. These processors, together with TI's full range of general and special analog products, can not only achieve a complete signal chain solution, but also improve the speed and effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment for millions of people around the world

faster and more accurate medical services

embedded digital signal processor is a flexible programmable device, which can be upgraded on site by updating software and algorithm. Colleges and universities, programmers and R & D centers continue to develop new algorithms to improve the clarity, depth and usefulness of diagnostic imaging. Using Ti scalable processor, the new algorithm can be easily uploaded to the machines deployed on site. For equipment manufacturers, this rapid update can not only prolong the service life of the equipment, but also enhance the function of the equipment. For clinicians and patients, improving imaging quality is conducive to improving the quality of diagnosis and medical services

in addition to improving the quality of medical imaging, Ti processors and high-performance analog products can also speed up medical diagnosis. Many ti medical imaging integrated circuits are also equipped with riddles in each lantern, which can achieve excellent performance with extremely low power consumption and ultra-small package, enabling equipment manufacturers to transform large fixed machines into portable or handheld devices. Portable imaging equipment can follow patients at all times, whether in ambulances or in remote areas, whether it is trauma treatment or the need to determine the severity of the disease in time, which can improve the overall speed and efficiency of sending patients to hospital

in addition, the dlptm technology of embedded processors and Ti can also provide manufacturers with new imaging technology tools. New technologies such as tissue elastography, hyperspectral imaging, adaptive patient specific imaging, 3d/4d imaging and vein viewing make full use of the functions of TI's various high-performance, low-power devices. For example, we can use a new algorithm developed specifically for Ti processors to support real-time patient specific tissue elastography, so as to achieve the best diagnostic quality. In terms of 3d/4d imaging technology, which requires a lot of real-time processing work, Ti processor can improve the richness of 3D fetal modeling, so as to improve medical analysis and support efficient 4D cardiovascular applications. DLP technology can highlight the blood vessels of patients, which is extremely convenient to view, so as to avoid the problem of unclear view of some positions

Nielsanderskouv, vice president of tidsp system, said, "since the 1980s, Ti has always been working with medical customers and the University of Washington And other leading institutions in the imaging field to jointly develop innovative technologies that can promote the continuous development of medical electronic equipment to improve medical work. With this series of processor products, we believe that we will be able to provide customers with better tools to help them provide more accurate images for doctors and patients more quickly. "

the richest IC Product Series in the field of medical imaging

in order to meet the many challenges faced by OEM manufacturers in the field of imaging, Ti first introduced the signal chain - first obtain the analog signal captured by the equipment, then digitize it for analysis, and finally convert it back to the analog signal for physicians and clinicians to view. Around the above signal chain, Ti also provides solutions such as power management, clock, interface, amplifier and data converter, which can provide the industry's richest semiconductor series products for all medical imaging technology fields

ti embedded processors cover products from high-performance multi-core devices to ultra-low power consumption, which can fully meet the needs of imaging equipment manufacturers. For example, many core products of Ti can provide OEM manufacturers with excellent computing performance that can meet the needs of high-end imaging technology. High performance single core processors such as TMS320C6455 and tms320c6452 are very suitable for imaging technologies that need real-time work, such as ultrasound, digital X-ray, Oct, hyperspectral imaging and other emerging applications. Tms320dm644x series products make full use of TI's powerful imaging function, which has won high praise in the industry, and can significantly improve the back-end processing suitable for imaging applications. Portable and handheld applications also benefit from TI's low-power OMAP (TM) and TMS320C67x processor platforms. Compared with traditional field programmable gate array (FPGA), it can not only greatly improve performance, but also reduce power consumption. Ti's series of products based on Da Vinci (TM) technology can provide a complete understanding of the perfect combination of peripherals, memory and processor. 1 The experimental fixture solution can greatly reduce the board level space and reduce the complexity of the system, so as to speed up the market process while making the product smaller

each of the above processors can be supported by a series of high robustness simulation products, so as to improve power efficiency, keep the heat on, speed up and improve the processing performance of screen captured images. Ti especially launched customized analog signal chain products for ultrasonic applications, such as afe58xx series fully formed analog front-end, which helps to design a low-cost innovative ultrasonic system with the smallest size in the industry, excellent imaging quality and lower power consumption, and can meet various needs from handheld terminal devices to high-performance ultrasonic devices. In addition, Ti also launched tx7xx series high-voltage pulse generator and switch synchronously, which, as a new product series, can fully meet the needs of portable to medium range ultrasonic systems. The first product of this series is tx734, which is a four channel high-voltage pulse generator. Compared with discrete solutions, it can reduce the board level space by 50%, and its activedamping feature can also improve pulse symmetry and reduce secondary distortion, so as to achieve unprecedented image clarity
