Phase-shifter Simplifies Ultrasound Applications

The AD8333 is the key component of a phase-shifter system that aligns time-skewed information contained in RF signals. Combined with a variable gain amplifier (VGA) and low noise amplifier (LNA), the AD8333 forms a complete analog receiver for a high performance ultrasound system. Moreover, the AD8333 can also be applied as a major element in analog beamformer circuits in medical ultrasound equipment.
