The figures mentioned below are indicative and shall be considered in a precise environment and for a given application.
Other important parameter, like thermal environment, acoustical coupling, duty cycle and other electrical and acoustical conditions shall be defined in order to determine the rights technological solutions and the performances the transducer should have.
|Maximum acoustic power (surface)*||up to 30 W/cm²|
|Efficiency||50 to 70%|
|Frequency range||200 KHz to 10 MHz|
|Shaping capabiliity||F number down to 1/2|
|Size range||up to 300 mm diameter|
|Bandwidth||30 to 70%|
|MRI compatibility||yes, on request >>|
For high power and therapeutic applications Imasonic designs and produces single elements and transducer arrays including annular arrays, 1D and 1.5D linear arrays and 2D matrix arrays.
Transducers can be designed with simple housing or dedicated housing for MRI compatibility, endocavitery laparoscopic or peroperative applications.
