Product overview


The STEVAL-IME008V1 is a product evaluation board designed around the STHV749 4-channel 7-level high voltage pulser, a state-of-the-art device designed for ultrasound imaging applications.

The output waveforms can be displayed directly on an oscilloscope by connecting the scope probe to the relative BNCs. 16 preset waveforms are available to test the HV pulser under varying conditions.
