Verasonics UTA 1024-MUX Adapter 

Verasonics’ Universal Transducer Adapter (UTA) allows Vantage systems to operate matrix array transducers through a unique small format connector. The MUX switch topology allows for switching apertures between transmit and receive and for connecting each channel to up to four elements in parallel (one from each bank) which permits particular types of transmissions using larger apertures (e.g. plane wave).
