RX-DAQ

SonixTouch Research is a widely deployed ultrasound research scanner produced by Analogic Corp. Our RX-DAQ is an upgraded version of SonixDAQ Parallel Channel Data Acquisition that enables simultaneous capturing pre-beamformed data directly from the ultrasound probe. Thanks to a high-speed PCIe interface the RX-DAQ enables not only real-time acquisition, but also streaming and processing of the raw RF data on a PC. The pre-beamformed data could be acquired to the internal buffer memory (up to 16 GB) or transfered on-the-fly to the PC memory. Implemented software framework, optimized for GPU based software processing, supports real-time visualisation using advanced image reconstruction algorithms (eg. STA, Plane Wave). User’s own algorithms can be easily developed using standard CUDA/OpenCL frameworks enabling real-time implementation of custom image processing methods.
