Our highly skilled staff of 14 Scientists, Engineers and
Technicians have many years of experience in all
disciplines of transducer design and fabrication.
We utilize SolidWorks 3D and AutoCad 2D design
software for all of our design tasks.
Our R & D staff has full in-house acoustic modeling
capabilities.
        Overview of Abilities
Our family of top quality, custom piezocomposites is
the result of many years of acoustic and materials
development.

Our primary focus is the development and
manufacture of high frequency medical transducers.

We are the industry leader in the high frequency
Ophthalmic market in the 10MHz to 50MHz range.
        Overview of Abilities
Our composite array technology is pushing the
envelope of conventional imaging by providing high
element count and fine pitch arrays in the 10MHz to
20MHz range.

Our extensive experience with the fabrication of high
element count arrays has allowed us to develop
processes that enable our skilled production staff to
consistently terminate thousands of element
interconnects.

We are the partner of choice for many emerging
technology companies worldwide.
