The aim of this module is to get the electrical signal coming back from a transducer, and to deliver the signal, analogically processed, with all the intermediary signals accessible to the user.
All key signals are accessible, and jumpers, as well as pots, enable on-board fine-tuning of the signals.
This gave for example the following image from a vintage ultrasound probe found on ebay:
This module is part of a project has a specific target of providing a low-cost, open source technological kit to allow scientists, academics, hackers, makers or OSHW fans to hack their way to ultrasound imaging - below 500$ - at home, with no specific equipment required. For complementary sources of information, you can visit the Hackaday Page, our github repo or the online modules manual.
The results are detailed below:
This was made with love.
It's also extremely robust, extremely versatile, and having access to all intermediary signals enables you to do whatever you want with your ultrasound imaging system.
Sure! You can find the Kicad and Altium files here](https://github.com/kelu124/echomods/tree/master/goblin) - with a BOM at around 80$. Make it yourself! Part of the price here includes the fab fees.
Schematics are here.Here's a small graph for the link between ICs:

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
