Key features and benefits of the TX810 T/R switch
-- Eight integrated channels save more than 50 to 75 percent board space over discrete solutions, depending on T/R architectures -- Integration allows for faster designs and higher reliability due to fewer devices and easier handling of components -- Programmable bias currents allow designers to adjust and reduce power consumption: -- 3-bit interface used to program a 7-mA range of bias currents -- Power-down mode to reduce power consumption -- Optimized insertion loss maintains integrity of input/output signal at 400 ohm load with 0.9 dB at 7-mA bias current and 1.3 dB at 1-mA bias current -- The TX810 completes TI's signal chain offering for ultrasound systems together with the AFE58xx family of analog front ends, the TX734 high-voltage pulser and a broad portfolio of embedded processors for medical imaging, power management products, clocks and interfaces.
Availability and pricing
The TX810 comes in a 36-pin 6 mm x 6 mm QFN package. Samples are available now, with full production scheduled for December 2009. The device is priced at $6.00 in 1,000-unit quantities.
