Samplify's AutoFocus™ Beamforming Technology Awarded Electronic Design's 'Best of 2010'

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Samplify Systems, Inc., a leading provider of technology, semiconductors and sub-systems for the ultrasound market, is pleased to announce that its AutoFocus™ beamforming technology for medical ultrasound imaging has won Electronic Design Magazine's Best Electronic Design award for 2010 in the medical category.  Details of Samplify's AutoFocus™ beamforming technology currently appear in Electronic Design's annual Best Electronic Design issue, and can be viewed at  or on the publication's web site at


According to Tom Sparkman, president and CEO of Samplify, "We are honored that for the second year in a row such a prestigious trade publication recognizes our efforts to deliver premier medical imaging technology.  As we enter 2011, the medical imaging industry can continue to expect this caliber of technology, products and solutions from Samplify.  We are committed to delivering on this promise."

"With Samplify's AutoFocus beamforming technology, now available as part of a complete development kit, the company's devices and technology are offered to OEMs in a form that's easier to design into products while expediting time-to-market," said Electronic Design Technology Editor, Roger Allan, who selected this product for recognition.

In October, 2010, Samplify announced the availability of its AutoFocus™ beamforming technology as part of its SMK9130 development kit which provides a complete solution for the analog front end of an ultrasound machine, from probe connector to PCI Express connector.  Last month at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Exhibition, the company announced a relationship with Telemed, Ltd. (Vilnius, Lithuania) who will provide a companion software development kit, enabling ultrasound OEMs to see world-class images out-of-the-box.  

About Samplify's AutoFocus™ Beamforming:

Samplify's beamformer technology includes a unique integrated AutoFocus™ engine which automatically refocuses the receiver to capture reflections at different scan depths. AutoFocus™ alleviates the real-time requirement of calculating and downloading the delay and weighting coefficients in the back-end computer, thus simplifying software and system design. Four scan-lines are formed simultaneously using Samplify's QuadBeam™ phased array technology for improved lateral resolution and four times the frame rates of previous generation designs. All transducer geometry definitions and scan-line parameters are driven from programmable tables, further removing the real-time nature of back-end computer updates while providing beamformer implementation flexibility to the OEM customer. Silicon implementation of the new beamformer will consume up to 90 percent less power versus an FPGA.
