Abstract

This study proposes a high-speed high-voltage bipolar pulser for medical ultrasonic imaging applications. The designed pulser adopts high-speed level shifters and high-volrage push-pull output stages and can generate 200-Vpp (pm 100textV) output pulses with rising and falling times of 18.2 ns and 18 ns, respectively, under a 1-textKOmega resistance parallel with a 220-pF capacitance load. The measured second harmonic distortion (HD2) of the transmitted signal is about-40 dBc. The proposed pulser is suitable for medical ultrasonic imaging with low second harmonic sideband signals.
