For the ultimate comfort in continuous wearing of an ultrasound monitor, extreme miniaturization is required. To this end, a complete ultrasound transducer will be integrated into a tiny silicon chip. We call this extreme miniaturization ultrasound-on-a-chip. Using this new technology, a complete ultrasound monitor will consist of an IC (integrated circuit), a transducer (ultrasound-on-a-chip) and a battery, packaged in a skin patch to facilitate the best contact to the user. This extreme miniaturization will revolutionize the use of wearable ultrasound applications.
For the development of the ultrasound-on-a-chip technology, Novioscan benefited from a subsidy of the European Union via the “Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling”.
