MSc thesis projects - Smart Ultrasound

Here is a list of possible MSc thesis projects related to the theme Smart Ultrasound. This is intended just to give an idea, actual projects are usually defined after discussion with the advisor.

[2023] A Programmable High-Voltage Pulser for Miniature Ultrasound Probes

In this project, we will explore new circuit topologies using high-voltage MOSFETs to implement compact ultrasound pulsers

[2023] A Compact Noise-Shaping SAR ADC for Smart Ultrasound Probes

This project aims to investigate the use of noise-shaping SAR ADCs for in-probe digitization of ultrasound echo signals

[2023] Shape Sensing for Flexible Ultrasound Transducer Arrays

Ultrasound probes employ arrays of transducer elements to coherently send and receive ultrasound waves. This projects aims to investigate solutions to detect the relative position of the elements of a flexible transducer array, as will be needed in future wearable ultrasound devices.

[2023] 3D Integration and Packaging Schemes for Smart Ultrasound Devices

Next-generation ultrasound devices require dense integration of transducers and electronics. In this project, we will explore new ways of increasing the integration density using 3D integration scheme.

[2023] A compact ultrasound low-noise amplifier with built-in time-gain compensation

In this project, you will explore innovative circuit topologies to realize an efficient and compact low-noise amplifier for ultrasound echo signals.

[2023] Power management circuitry for battery-powered ultrasound patches

In this project, you will design an integrated power converter allowing an ultrasound transceiver to operate directly from a battery.

[2023] A transceiver ASIC for a wearable ultrasound patch

In this project, you will characterize and improve an ASIC for a wearable ultrasound patch.

[2023] Data reduction by mixed-signal processing of ultrasound echo signals for wearable ultrasound devices

In this project, you will investigate new mixed-signal techniques to reduce the amount of data generated in wearable ultrasound devices.
