Octal Ultrasound AFE
with Digital Demodulator
The AD9670 is designed for low cost, low power, small size, and
ease of use for medical ultrasound applications. It contains eight
channels of a VGA with an LNA, a CW harmonic rejection I/Q
demodulator with programmable phase rotation, an antialiasing
filter, an ADC, and a digital demodulator and decimator for data
processing and bandwidth reduction.
Each channel features a maximum gain of up to 52 dB, a fully
differential signal path, and an active input preamplifier termination.
The channel is optimized for high dynamic performance and
low power in applications where a small package size is critical.
The LNA has a single-ended-to-differential gain that is selectable
through the serial port interface (SPI). Assuming a 15 MHz noise
bandwidth (NBW) and a 21.6 dB LNA gain, the LNA input SNR
is 94 dB. In CW Doppler mode, each LNA output drives an I/Q
demodulator that has independently programmable phase
rotation with 16 phase settings.
Power-down of individual channels is supported to increase
battery life for portable applications. Standby mode allows quick
power-up for power cycling. In CW Doppler operation, the
VGA, antialiasing filter, and ADC are powered down. The ADC
contains several features designed to maximize flexibility and
minimize system cost, such as a programmable clock, data
alignment, and programmable digital test pattern generation.
The digital test patterns include built-in fixed patterns, built-in
pseudorandom patterns, and custom user-defined test patterns
entered via the SPI.
