The Vantage™ Research Ultrasound Systems

The Most Flexible Technology for Research Ultrasound

With more channel options, a wider frequency range, multi-channel arbitrary waveform generation capability, 14-bit A/D conversion, and greater control, flexibility and speed than other research products, the Vantage systems are breakthrough technology.  Providing easy programmability, over 500 example scripts and a familiar MATLAB® interface, Verasonics systems are incredibly powerful tools for research and development in all applications of ultrasound and ultrasonics.

* some probes supported


  • Real-time access to RF data for each channel
  • Standard frequency range: 0.5 – 27 MHz (up to 50 MHz with filter adjustment)
    • (1 – 50 MHz with High Frequency configuration)
    • (50 kHz – 1.5 MHz with Low Frequency configuration)
  • Programmable anti-aliasing filter cutoff: 10, 15, 20 and 30 MHz, and in addition, 35 and 50 MHz with High Frequency configuration
  • 14 bit A/D converters with programmable sample rate up to 62.5 MHz
  • Two independent, user-programmable, symmetrical RF data digital filters (23 tap and 41 tap)

Transmit Options

  • Extended Transmit option: Enables pulses up to a few milliseconds in duration (for radiation force methods and for long coded excitation pulses)
  • Arbitrary Waveform: Per-channel programming of tri-state transition timing on a 4 ns grid


  • All transmit and receive channels are independently controlled
  • Standard frequency range: 0.5 MHz to 20 MHz
    • (2 – 42 MHz with High Frequency configuration)
    • (50 kHz – 1.5 MHz with Low Frequency configuration)
  • Time delay resolution: 4.0 nsec.
  • Programmable pulser amplitude, 2 to 190V p-p
  • Tri-state drive: + high voltage, – high voltage and ground
  • Per-channel, programmable center frequency, pulse width (pulse duty cycle), pulse length, polarity and delay
  • Per-channel transmit apodization using pulse width modulation
  • Maximum burst length (without Extended Transmit option) is a few microseconds at transmit center frequency
  • Power limit, single channel: up to 100 Watts peak, 8 Watts average (into 50 Ohms)

How fast is Vantage?

Data acquisition into local memory up to 100,000 frames/second, limited only by acoustic travel time. RF Data transfer to host computer via 8 PCI express lanes with a sustained data transfer rate up to 6.6 GB/s. 64 MB/channel local buffer memory for RF acquisitions.  Digital averaging, filtering and decimation may be performed on up to 1000 acquisitions to improve SNR and reduce bandwidth.

Vantage Host Controller

The Vantage system includes a powerful host controller workstation that has been optimized to provide the best performance with your Vantage system.  It comes with a custom BIOS, installed Verasonics software including HAL, VSX, firmware and drivers; PCI express host adapter, MATLAB software, and over 500 example scripts.
