NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As hospitals, medical clinics, and mobile emergency units increasingly rely on high-performance and portable ultrasound equipment for routine, preventative, and acute medical care, ultrasound equipment designers must meet new and varied demands for a better balance between image quality and power efficiency. Addressing this need, the leading provider of data conversion technology and longtime collaborator to the medical imaging industry, Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI), is announcing two new products, both eight-channel (octal) ultrasound receivers. The AD9272 features the industry’s lowest terminated noise for high- and mid-end cart-based ultrasound equipment that need superior image quality, and the AD9273 is the most power-efficient device in its class for addressing the requirements of portable ultrasound systems.
