Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Sensors Online recently featured an article by Glen Fitzpatrick, Micralyne’s Chief Scientific Officer, on CMUTs. Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (CMUTs) are MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) based structures that can be used to generate and sense acoustic signals in the ultrasonic range. CMUT based systems have recently been announced as a one-probe solution for a wide range of ultrasound examinations. CMUT potential benefits include miniaturization, superior imaging resolution, and high temperature reliability, conditions where conventional ultrasound transducers tend to fail.
CMUTs offer many potential advantages over conventional PZT transducer materials, which dominate present ultrasound products.
Micralyne offers advanced prototyping, development, and volume manufacturing services for CMUTs, both for components and for complete module assemblies. Micralyne’s CMUT technology enables high volume ultrasound transducer manufacturing at a lower cost compared to current solutions. Contact Micralyne to find out how you can benefit from the extensively tested pre-characterization and validated process flows in place at Micralyne.
