In ultrasound imaging, capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) technology has become a promising alternative to conventional piezoelectric-based technology. This work proposes a generic Verilog-AMS model for CMUT sensors that takes into account the non-linearities, dynamic behavior and harmonic resonances of the CMUT. Design and implementation of a comprehensive analog front-end system in a 0.35 mm high-voltage (120V) CMOS technology which includes high-voltage and fast-switching transmitters as well as low-power variable-gain receivers is presented. An on-chip adaptive biasing unit (ABU) is also included in the design which aims to improve the CMUT receive sensitivity. The ABU consists of a DC-DC converter to generate a range of bias voltage levels and a digital control unit to select the desired voltage. Co-simulation of the ABU with the Verilog-AMS model confirms the increase in the CMUT sensitivity in receive mode. In the context of CMUT super-resolution imaging, we present the design of a transceiver that supports both the fundamental and asymmetric modes of operation. The transmitter provides high-voltage pulses to the CMUT electrodes. The receiver includes transimpedance analog adders to add the fundamental mode in-phase signals as well as differential amplifiers to combine the out-of-phase signals of the asymmetric modes. Furthermore, low-power variable-gain stages are included to amplify the resulting signals and facilitate interfacing to the ultrasound imaging machine for additional processing and display. The design functionality is confirmed by experimental results.
