Teratech ™ Architecture
Terason researchers have created the ideal medical ultrasound platform by applying advanced electronics technologies to the creation of diagnostic ultrasound images.  Leveraging patented charge-domain processing and system integration technologies, Teratech Architecture is the first ultrasound system architecture breakthrough in over twenty years.  Teratech Architecture is based on Terason’s Fusion™ Processor, the world’s only custom-designed integrated ultrasound chip set, and the use of a Windows®-based computer.  Teratech Architecture enables the development of cutting-edge, flexible and infinitely scalable imaging applications while significantly reducing their cost.

Terason Fusion Processor
Unlike the Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) that are widely used in computing and medical applications, Terason's Fusion™ Processor is an advanced custom-designed chip for ultrasound applications that delivers exceptional image quality and unlimited scalability not possible with conventional ASICs.  In fact, it is the only fully-custom ultrasound chipset in the world.  Other compact ultrasound systems using conventional ASIC technology rely on a reduction in beamforming power to reduce weight and size.  The Fusion processor's patented beamforming design enables Terason systems to drive more beamforming channels than competitive systems, resulting in clearly superior image quality.

Windows®-based Personal Computer
Because Terason systems use a Windows-based Personal Computer back end, the system delivers flexibility and efficiency in image processing, reporting, communication and system integration.  Terason's systems can be integrated into the existing communication infrastructure or can operate as standalone workstations within the hospital or at remote locations.
