SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cephasonics, a technology-innovation leader with a game-changing embedded-ultrasound platform, today announced the introduction of the cQuest Ultrasound SDK Client/Server Toolkit that allows complete network-based communications with all cQuest Ultrasound hardware platforms. Cephasonics will demonstrate its latest embedded-ultrasound technology, including this new capability, at Hospitalar 2013 held in Sao Paulo, Brazil from May 21-24. Cephasonics is located in the U.S. Medical Trade Mission in Green Hall, aisle O, booth 50/58.
"We are demonstrating our next-generation wireless-imaging capabilities with a host running the server side that uses our released cQuest Cicada system, and an iPad® mini running the client side on iOS," said Richard Tobias, CEO and president of Cephasonics. "All control and ultrasound data between server and client takes place across a wireless Wi-Fi network. We have also demonstrated ultrasound control and video over the internet." He added that the company intends to implement this exciting new technology in next-generation products being rolled out later this year.
The Client/Server Toolkit provides full compatibility with the current cQuest Ultrasound SDK core API set, allowing for easy porting and migration to the client/server-programming model. Ultrasound applications developed with the new toolkit no longer need to run adjacent to the underlying cQuest Ultrasound hardware. Additionally, the client API set is platform- and operating system-independent and includes ports for Java, Microsoft .NET (C#), Python and C++ and availability on Windows 7/8, Mac OS X and Linux.
A technology-innovation leader with a game-changing embedded-ultrasound platform, Cephasonics provides a complete range of cQuest-based technology, semiconductor and subsystem products that increase the performance, lower the power and accelerate time-to- market of ultrasound devices. The company's cQuest Ultrasound API software is the catalyst for customer innovations that are spurring a revolution in ultrasound from image-guided procedures to ultrasound as an appliance. Launched with a management buyout in March 2012 and headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif., Cephasonics' technology and semiconductor products, including its AutoFocus beamforming technology and its SAM1600 family of ADCs, have won multiple industry awards for innovation.
