Ultrasound Pulser for Non-destructive Testing
Productive Product: Supertex introduced the HV739, a single channel, monolithic, high speed ultrasound pulser IC for non-destructive testing applications. The IC brings together controller logic interface circuitry, level translators, MOSFET gate drive buffers, and high-current, high-voltage outputs. It delivers peak output currents over 3.3A with up to a 200V swing. The HV739 features matched delay times, up to 10 MHz operating frequency, over temperature sensing, under voltage protection, and a 1.8V to 5.0V CMOS logic interface. It also employs a direct coupling topology to facilitate easier board layout. The part is RoHS compliant.
