  journal={2011 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium},
In this work we report on the performance optimization of a recently developed high frequency CMUT probe. By leveraging the advantages offered by our proprietary “Reverse Fabrication Process (RFP)” CMUT technology, we have developed an efficient and reliable packaging process, useful for the fabrication of small sized ultrasound probe-heads. We have maximized the performance by connecting the CMUT probe-head to multichannel analog front-end electronic circuits housed into the probe. An… CONTINUE READING
