Erwin Hijzen, MEMS Development manager MEMS & Micro Devices, Philips Innovation Services | Topic: Breakthroughs in CMUT

The market for Medical Ultrasound is rapidly changing. From a purely professional market there is an expansion towards point-of-care and consumer space. This requires an Ultrasound Technology platform that is low-cost, scalable and flexible. This presentation will demonstrate that the CMUT technology we have developed in Philips is well suited for that. We will show the modular approach of the technology, in combination with its frequency scaling capabilities. The versatile nature of this platform also inspires the use of the technology for new applications, either in- or outside the medical domain
