Eight Channel, High Speed, Unipolar, Ultrasound Pulser 1.5A 150V

The Supertex HV7355 is an eight-channel, unipolar, high voltage, high-speed pulse generator. It is designed for medical ultrasound applications. This high voltage and high speed integrated circuit can also be used for other piezoelectric, capacitive or MEMS sensors in ultrasonic nondestructive detection and sonar ranger applications.

The HV7355 consists of a controller logic interface circuit, level translators, MOSFET gate drivers and high current P-channel and N-channel MOSFETs as the output stage for each channel.

The output stages of each channel are designed to provide peak output currents over ±1.5A for pulsing, when MC = 1, with up to 150V swings. When MC = 0, all the output stages drop the peak current to ±500mA for low-voltage CW mode operation to save power. This direct coupling topology of the gate driver not only saves one high voltage capacitor per channel, but also makes the PCB layout easier.

150V, 1.5A, Unipolar Ultrasound Pulser Demoboard

The HV7355 is a monolithic eight-channel, high-speed,high voltage, unipolar ultrasound transmitter pulser. This integrated, high performance circuit is in a single, 8x8x0.9mm, 56-lead QFN package.

The HV7355 can deliver guaranteed ±1.5A source and sink current to a capacitive transducer with 0 to +150V peak voltage. It is designed for medical ultrasound imaging and ultrasound material NDT applications. It can also be used as a high voltage driver for other piezoelectric or capacitive MEMS transducers, or for ATE systems and pulse signal generators as a signal source.

The HV7355’s circuitry consists of controller logic circuits, level translators, gate driving buffers and a high current and high voltage MOSFET output stage. The output stages of each channel are designed to provide peak output currents typically over ±1.5A for pulsing, with up to 150V swings. The upper limit frequency of the pulser waveform is dependent upon the load capacitance. With different capacitance load conditions the maximum output frequency is about 20MHz.

This demoboard datasheet describes how to use the HV7355DB1 to generate the basic high voltage pulse waveform as an ultrasound transmitting pulser.

The HV7355 circuit uses DC-coupling from a 3.3V logic input to output TX0~7 internally, therefore the chip needs three sets of voltage supply rails: VLL (+3.3V), VDD/VSS (+/-5.0V) and VPP (up to +150V). The VPP high voltage supply can be changed rather quickly, compared to the capacitor gatecoupled driving pulsers. This direct coupling topology of the gate drivers not only saves two high voltage capacitors per channel, but also makes the PCB layout easier.

The control signal logic-high voltage should be the same as the VLL voltage of the IC, and the logic-low should be referenced to GND.

The HV7355DB1 output waveforms can be displayed using an oscilloscope by connecting the scope probe to the test points TX0~7 and GND. The soldering jumper can select whether or not to connect the on-board dummy load, a 330pF capacitor paralleling with a 2.5kΩ resistor. The test points can be used to connect the user’s transducer to easily evaluate the pulser.
