Abstract

The design of a universal waveform generator derived from displaying driving applications using floating power and Miller integrator circuit is introduced first. Then, the feasibility of driving ultrasound transducers is verified by the test of the circuit and compared with other specific design of pulse generator for ultrasound driving purpose.
