AD927x/AD967x Octal Ultrasound
Analog Front End (AFE) Product Family
for High Performance Cart-Based and
Portable Ultrasound Systems
Ultrasound designs and the associated requirements have
evolved over the years to meet increasingly complex diagnostic
needs, ranging from routine prenatal care to advanced cardiac
imaging. To meet new and varied demands, Analog Devices’
AD927x/AD967x family of octal ultrasound receivers offers a
range of features and functionality that maximize image quality
and performance, while minimizing power dissipation and
system cost.
Features and Functionality
CW I/Q Demodulator
Used to measure the speed and direction of blood flow, CW
Doppler processing provides physicians and sonographers
with a measurement technique to diagnose vascular conditions, such as faulty valves and arteries in the heart. The
AD927x/AD967x family offers models that provide CW I/Q
demodulation and individual programmable phase rotation
supporting exceptional levels of performance while reducing
the need for filter components. A CW I/Q demodulator reduces
system cost, complexity, and power consumption.
Digital I/Q Demodulator and FIR Decimation Filter
An on-chip digital demodulator and decimator conditions eight channels of data from RF to a baseband frequency,
reducing the processing load on the system FPGA (field-programmable gate array).
RF Decimator
An on-chip RF decimator enables the ADC to be oversampled, providing an increased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for
improved image quality while maintaining a lower data I/O rate to system processors.
JESD204B Serial Interface
Several models in the product family have a 5 Gbps JESD204B data conversion serial interface to support higher
data rates and channel counts, while reducing ultrasound system I/O data routing by as much as 80% compared
to other data interface standards. The resultant savings addresses the design needs of small, high performance
ultrasound systems. The ultrasound equipment board design is simplified while better meeting the industry’s
demands for higher data rates, larger channel counts, and greater image resolution.

Product Highlights
Low Noise
Excellent input- and output-referred noise enables improved system sensitivity for high performance applications.
Low Power
The power dissipation enables compact designs with a long battery life and low heat dissipation. The portfolio
offers several models that support high end systems with small form factors at 130 mW per channel at 12 bits,
40 MSPS, and 50 mW per channel in CW Doppler mode; several models are optimized for portable systems at
85 mW per channel at 12 bits, 40 MSPS, and 25 mW per channel in CW Doppler mode.
Input Options
With active termination, the AD927x/AD967x product family offers the flexibility to design in several different probe
types and maintain the dynamic range of the system.
Range of Sample Conversion Rates
The sample conversion rate is dependent on the specific model selected and the 12-bit or 14-bit ADC on chip.
Sample conversion rates range from 10 MSPS to 125 MSPS. Several models offer an on-chip RF decimator,
enabling oversampling for high frequency probe applications.
Digital Interface
Digital LVDS supports both IEEE and ANSI standards. Double termination allows the user to make longer trace
runs supporting digital receivers off board. A data clock output (DCO) operates up to 480 MHz and supports double
data rate (DDR) operation. On some models, CML outputs support JESD204B standards, and the embedded clock
high speed serial link operates up to 5 Gbps.
User Flexibility
The serial port interface (SPI) allows designers to further customize the noise, gain, and bias for any given imaging
mode, probe, or power requirement. By changing SPI registers, designers can optimize an ultrasound signal
processing architecture for the best possible noise performance or longest battery life. An easy-to-use software
tool simplifies each configuration.
Small Form Factor
Eight channels of full TGC path, analog-to-digital converter, and crosspoint switch or I/Q demodulator are contained
within a RoHS-compliant 10 mm × 10 mm, CSP_BGA or 16 mm × 16 mm, TQFP_EP package.
