Micro-machined Ultrasonic Transducers (MUTs). In general terms MUTs are basically MEMs structures that consist of two electrodes. One of the two electrodes are fixed whilst the other electrode is movable. Separating the two electrodes is an insulating layer and a vacuum-sealed gap. This moveable electrode is stimulated differently for PMUTs and CMUTs. PMUTs stimulate the movable electrode with a piezoelectric film, whereas stimulation in CMUTs occurs through electrostatic deflection.
OnScale allows users to create and analyse 3D array structures to investigate key performance metrics such as inter-element cross-talk, transmit-receive sensitivity, bandwidth and anything else captured during experimentation. Through OnScale, engineers can drastically reduce the requirement for physical fabrications and drive down development costs.
