Product Concept

MANUS is a miniaturized high-performance ultrasound scanner module for application specific and general ultrasound machines. It is characterized by high sensitivity and great raw data quality which can be used for B-mode, M-mode, PW Doppler and Color Flow.

MANUS technology is based on 30 years experience in low noise analog – and high-speed digital design:

  • Modular, compact and flexible
  • Very good high frequency quality
  • Great Signal to Noise ratio
  • Signal processing in FPGA
