Digital X-ray equipment is widely used in general radiography, mammography and interventional radiology. The integrated flat-panel detectors in digital X-ray equipment are required to produce high-resolution, low-noise images while operating at high scanning rates.
Sensor interface solutions from ams for these flat panel detectors help digital X-ray equipment manufacturers to produce accurate X-ray images and to increase scanning rates.
The ams products for digital X-ray equipment include high-speed readout circuits and gate drivers optimized for line times as low as 15µs. These devices are used in fluoroscopy equipment helping to increase the frame rate in dynamic X-ray applications.
For static X-ray equipment using portable and battery-powered flat panels, ams offers readout circuits which dissipate as little as 1.1mW per channel. This low power dissipation enables the equipment to perform more X-ray exposures before the detector has to be recharged, thus increasing patient throughput.
