Record the contents of the battery backup memory.

4)

After working, restore the equipment according to the above mentioned contents of memory if
necessary.

5)

2-9

After completion of work, put back the peripheral devices to the original condition.

Precaution for Monitor repairing


1) Subjecting the unit to strong shocks may result in damage to the CRT or malfunction, therefore
care must be taken when transporting or installing the unit.
DANGER High voltages are present inside the display chassis. Only experienced
technicians should touch internal parts.

DANGER

The electric charge has remained in CRT after the power switch is turned
off. Because the high voltage is usually used for CRT. So make the
electric charge escape with a grounding stick which is connected to the
ground of the chassis and through the resistance for high voltage (Approx.
1M) before removing the anode cap.
Some electric charge remain in CRT after escaping with a grounding
stick. Do not touch the metallic part of the anode cap with bare hands,
when detaching the anode cap directly.

2) CRT with the deflecting yoke is already adjusted to the best condition. Do not touch the
deflecting yoke and the magnet of the neck part.
3) Be sure to detach the metallic goods such as a wrist watch from your body before doing the
repair work.

To prevent the secondary damage and the electrical shock, the matters above should be taken
into careful consideration.

SECTION 2 PRECAUTIONS

2-10

Handling of S.M.D. PCBs


It is an Aloka's policy that neither repair nor upgrade (improvement) of PCBs used for S.M.D. is
made in the field as a rule because of the following reasons:

[REMARKS] PCB does not need repairing or modifying in the field as a rule.

When handling a PCB, do not touch the IC unless it is necessary.


IC soiled with workers hands may cause corrosion. Additionally, foreign particles such as fine
solder dust could be the cause of short-circuited IC lead wires whose pitch is smaller than that of
the traditional ones.

Do not give excessively large shocks to the PCB.


When replacing the ROM (Read Only Memory) on the PCB, attempting to force the ROM into
its socket would cause the PCB to be subjected to an undue force, and the following faults may :

1)

Damage to PCB intermediate-layer patterns,

2)

Peeling of chip devices (resistor, capacitor, diode, etc.)

3)

Damage to a junction between electrode and internal element of chip devices,

4)

Peeling of patterns (especially those for mounting the parts) together with chip devices since
those patterns are rather fragile compared with PCBs used before now, and

5)

Damage to parts on the reverse side in the case of PCBs of both-side mounting type.

Also, a PCB mounted improperly or a warped PCB mounted as it is may cause the chip devices to
come off and the fine patterns to be cut.
Additionally, reuse of chip devices (including resistors, capacitors, diodes, etc.) is strictly
inhibited because of the following reason: Since the chip devices are lacking in lead wires, such
as those found in the traditional component parts, heat given to the PCB will be directly conducted
to the inside of chip devices. As a result, a thermal stress will occur due to a difference in thermal
expansion coefficient between each chip device and PCB, giving rise of the possibility of cracks
inside of or on the surface of chip devices or the possibility of thermal breaking (internal burning).

Very thin wiring patterns require extreme care in handling of the PCB
Be sure to observe the precautions mentioned above also to prevent the secondary accidents.

SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

4-4-2. TX/RX Unit


The Tx/Rx unit provides functions to generate transmission pulses, conduct analog
processing of received echoes, and transfer ultrasound image data to the DIU.

The transmission pulses are converted to high-voltage in the driver circuit that drives the
oscillator and are then supplied to the selected probe.
The transmission voltage is detected by the transmission power supply voltage monitoring
circuit on the TX / PRE AMP board and this data is sent to the system control unit. The
system control unit immediately stops transmission if it receives abnormal transmission
power supply data.

The electronic scanning probe has a maximum of 128 Tx/Rx lines, allowing it to
simultaneously drive up to 32 transducers. Up to 32 of the 128 Tx/Rx lines can be selected
by the selector circuit, which comprises 16 HVSs (8-channel High Voltage Analog
Switches).

The received echoes are received by the transducers that transmitted and are amplified in
the pre-amp circuit. The received echoes are analog processed after received dynamic
focusing, then A/D converted and transferred to the DIU.
With an electronic probe, phase compensation is conducted in the matrix switch and delay
line because the phases of the echoes received by the multiple transducers are displaced
from each other.

4-4-3. DIU Unit


The DIU uses a high-speed X-Y system.

The ultrasound image data received from the Tx/Rx unit as a digital signal is sent
for pre-processing. Pre-processing involves input selection of the ultrasound image data
sent from the Tx/Rx unit, frame correlation, and storing in frame memory.

Post-processing involves the interpolation and correlation of the B-mode image in the TV
horizontal scan direction, addition of gray-scale bar, characters and graphics, and output to
the D/A conversion circuit.

In addition, the DIU unit supplies the ultrasound image data

for ABC (Auto B-Gain Control).

After D/A conversion, TV synchronization and blank signals are added and the signal is
output as a composite video signal.

regardless of the probe type, frequency, and individual differences between test subjects.
The ABC function can be turned ON or OFF and the ABC level can be set at the operation
panel.

The B-mode ultrasound image data stored in frame memory is sent to the ABC control unit,
which evaluates the brightness and outputs an ABC gain level analog signal according to
the ABC setting on the operation panel. Also, the gain volume setting is output by the
ABC controller as the ABC gain. The ABC gain is added to STC and output to the
MAIN AMP.

This board generates the control signals for the GEU unit, generates the memory write
control signals for the DIU unit, and opens the bus between the CPU BUS and the GEU
BUS and PANEL BUS.

CPU BUS WINDOW


Controls opening between the CPU BUS and the GEU BUS and PANEL BUS.

PROBE CONNECTOR DETECTOR


Detects whether a probe is connected and outputs this data to the CPU BUS. The 5bit data has 2 bits for linear/convex probes, 2 bits for mechanical scanner probes,
and 1 bit for the independent probe. The corresponding data bit becomes LOW
when a probe is connected.

FRAME RATE CALCULATOR


The frame interval is counted from the 100sec clock signal by a 16-bit counter
and the result is output to the CPU BUS. When the count is complete, the IRQ/
signal is output to apply an interrupt to the CPU. The CPU calculates the frame
rate from the counted data.

4-5-6. DIU
The B/W DIU (Digital Imaging Unit) fetches ultrasound wave digital data coming from
the GEU in synchronized with the DIU clock, writing ultrasound wave data to the display
memory in XY writing method, then reading out the ultrasound wave data in synchronized
with the TV signal. After this, gradation conversion of display data, addition of gray scale
bar and other post processing are executed by this block.
In the writing system, ultrasound wave scanning data are thought of as scanning line
vectors, and from the starting point indicated by the vector (X0, Y0) and the time it takes to
pass the boundary (X), (Y), one scanning line can freely be written to main memory.
Also, through the dynamic focus area signal (DFAREA), multi-level dynamic focused
ultrasound wave data can be written to memory.
The boundary passing signal (INCX, INCY) is detected by the XY Boundary Calculator
from the boundary passing time (X), (Y) in 1 pixel units. If the boundary passing signal is
detected, data are written to the line buffer the following system is used to determine if the
signal is INCX or INCY by the scanning address and register setting.
(a) XY Sampling Writing System (X and Y System)
In this system, writing to the line buffer is done each time either INCX or INCY is
generated. This system is used for all scanning lines.
(b) X Sampling, Y Sampling Writing System (X or Y System)
In this write system, the line buffer write area (X system) is set when INCX is
generated and the line buffer write area (Y system) is set when INCY is generated.
Data are written to the area specified in the X system each time INCX is generated,
while writing is not performed when INCY is generated. INCY information is held until
INCX is generated, then writing of both is done simultaneously. For this reason, the
number of times INCY is generated must be fewer than the times INCX is generated.
Accordingly, the area which can be specified in the X system is limited to 45 or more left
and right. In the same way, the area which can be specified in the Y system is limited to
45 or less left and right.
Also, the area setting is stored in X0 and Y0 (16-bit) in the parameter table.
The boundary pass signal (INCX, INCY) is written to the line buffer simultaneously
with the ultrasound wave data, and is used to increment the main memory write address.

ABC (Auto B-gain Control)


This block generates B_GAIN signal, which controls the gain for B-mode, referring
ultrasound brightness data in the image memory and the Gain Level setting by operation
panel. Then B_GAIN signal is sent to MAIN AMP board, and controls the gain of
receiving signal. In case ABC off, B_GAIN becomes the signal referring B GAIN knob
setting.

PRE PROCESS
This block is a circuit that executes various types of processing of ultrasound image
data sent and received at the GEU for writing to MEMORY.
Test Pattern Generation
Generates the various types of test pattern.

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

Echo Erase
In order to make physiological signals easy to see, the bottom portion of ultrasound
M image data is erased. The erased portion of ultrasound image data is written to
image memory as "0" level. This differs from USERASE and ERASE in the point
that it is executed when ultrasound image data are stored in image memory.
Memory Erase
In order not to display unnecessary data when changing modes, etc., either a portion
or all of the image memory is erased. The erased portion of ultrasound image data is
written to image memory as "0" level.
Except in the point that Erase is executed in screen units, which image memory is
configured into, this function is the same as Echo Erase.
Black and White Frame Correlation
Correlation between two frames is executed in order to reduce noise.
CPU Access
When making a histogram, etc. of ultrasound image data, the CPU can access image
memory. Access by the CPU is limited to times when the ultrasound image is
frozen.

MEMORY
This block is capable of storing enough ultrasound image data for two screens after
they have been processed by the pre process block.
Scanning conversion in the DIU is executed during writing to or reading from this
block.
Main memory is used as M image display memory during real operation and as frame
memory for frame correlation. During B image display and when the image is frozen,
CINE memory is used as display memory.
Memory Configuration
2 x 2 pixels is the smallest configuration element and 2 screens of 512 x 512 pixel
x 8 bit ultrasound image data are stored.
Black and White Main Memory
bits 0-5

Black and White Image Data

bit 6

Write/Read Speed
Writing to or reading from RAM is carried out by RMW at 320 nsec/1 pixel.
However, by shifting the access cycle one half period, apparently, RMW is done at
160 nsec/1 pixel. On the other hand, reading from the SAM block is by serial Read
at 160 nsec/1 pixel. By doing 2 pixels simultaneously, apparently, serial read can be
done at 80 nsec/1 pixel.
Erase
Using the Dual-port RAM flash write function, the image memory can be erased.

4 - 41

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

Erasing is executed by flash write at 160 nsec/1 Row, but when 4 chips are working
simultaneously, erasing can be done at high speed, with one 512 x 512 pixel screen
erased in approx. 45 sec. Furthermore, since it is not dependent on ultrasound
image data write operations, it differs from USERASE, ECHO ERASE and Memory
Erase.

POST PROCESS
This block carries out various types of processing of ultrasound image data read from
image memory.
H Interpolation
Spaces between lines of ultrasound B image data are interpolated in the TV H
direction. The area which can be interpolated is from 1-11 pixels, and selection of
the number of pixels to be interpolated is set by the register.
Ordinarily, the linear interpolation method is used. For black and white and
dispersion, linear interpolation is used.
Also, since the display area of ultrasound B image data is dependent on the
display format, it is controlled by TV synchronized signals.
Furthermore, ultrasound M image data do not pass through this processing
system.

H Correlation
In order to show connection of ultrasound image data in the TV H direction
smoothly, the arithmetic sum is taken between pixels in the TV H direction. The
system is equipped with independent correlation circuits for ultrasound B image data
and for M image data, with selection of whether these circuits are switched ON or
OFF being set by the register. Also, since the display area of ultrasound image data
is dependent on the display format, it is controlled by TV synchronization signals.
Gray Scale Bar Generation
A gray scale bar with 64 gradations ranging from the white level to the black level is
generated in the TV V direction. The display width of each gradation is fixed at 16 pixels
x 2 lines. Also, the display position is dependent on the display format, so it is controlled
by TV synchronization signals.
View
Gamma correction is carried out in accordance with the imaging device's
brightness characteristics. The following three types of gamma curve can be
selected.
(1)
Standard (Linear)
(2)
For ABDOM
(3)
For CARDIAC
There are two types (mainly for ultrasound B image data and for ultrasound M
image data) which can be held simultaneously. This function shares the Enhance

4 - 42

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

RAM, so selection is made by rewriting the Enhance RAM. Furthermore, for


ultrasound M image data, Standard (Linear) is selected automatically.
This function is implemented for black and white images only.
Overlay display
This is for displaying character and graphic. Two input circuits of OVL0 and
OVL1 are prepared for character and graphic signals allowing two kinds of
luminance level displaying. ON/OFF of each displaying and luminance level are set
by the register. The following shows priority among overlay signals to be
displayed.
(1) OVL0
High
(2) OVL1
|
(3) Gray scale bar

(4) Ultrasound image data
Low
In case there is no overlapping between OVL0 and OVL1, shadow appears on the
right side.
GEU I.T.F.
This block generates and controls parameter information for fetching ultrasound
data to the DIU. It also carries out movement control and freeze control.
Parameter ROM
Contains ultrasound scanning line vector information (parameters) for each probe.
This ROM has a capacity of 512 Kbytes, enough for 42 probes.
Reading and Conversion of Parameters
(a) Reading of ROM Data
Ultrasound scanning line vector information (parameters) X0, Y0, WXF,
WYF, X and Y, are sent to the control block each time a scanning line
write start signal (Line Start) arrives.
Data corresponding to DSCADRS (8:0), which are sent from the GEU, are
read according to the type of probe and display magnification.
It also performs conversion of parameters for vertical reversal, horizontal
reversal, display mode and probe code, in accordance with the read out data.
Parameter conversion is accomplished by hardware according to the display
mode and control register in all cases.
(b) Parameter Conversion
Since each unit of parameter data is 16 bits in length, the high byte and low
byte are read independently from ROM, then latched and sent to each block.
Vertical reversal and horizontal reversal display modes and conversion of
parameters (X0, Y0) in accordance with probe codes is done at this time.
Parameter ROM for Software
The system includes parameter ROM for reference by software. It is
accessible by the CPU at any time.
Scanning Area Display

4 - 43

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

This function makes the B image display area narrow and increases the
frame rate. This is accomplished by varying BOF/, EOF/ and DSCADRS (8:0)
in the GEU. Data from BOF/ to EOF/ are written as DIU.
Freeze Function
This function stops the writing of an image to display memory.
Freeze is executed by setting the register. In the case of freezing of a real
display simultaneous with B/M, it is necessary to set the Freeze Register in
advance.
Forced Freeze, where writing to memory is forcibly stopped, and
synchronous freeze mode, which is synchronized with the ultrasound write
image, are also provided.
B image synchronous freeze stops motion after one frame of B image data
has been written. Ordinarily, the sweep image in the B/M sweep motion mode
is frozen as a B image. Also, synchronous freeze which is independent of B
and sweep can be set. Sweep image synchronous freeze stops motion after
writing of one line of sweep image data is written. When in the B Mode, the
image is frozen after writing of the B image is completed.
When in the Sweep Mode, the image is frozen when writing of a sweep
image line is completed.
When in the B/M Sweep Mode, B is frozen after writing of one frame, and
the M sweep image is frozen after freezing of B is completed.

WRITE CONTROL
This block is configured from a block which generates write control signals and
addresses when image data read from the line buffer is written to display memory and
which controls erasing of display memory.
Image data (8-bit) read from the line buffer contain pixel border passing signals (INCX,
INCY) in the X and Y directions. Write addresses are generated by operating the address
counter for each direction by means of this signal. Setting of this address counter's initial
value and controlling the up-down count makes it possible to control the image direction.
Line Buffer Interface Function
This function returns a Write End signal for handshaking in response to
memory write request signals from the line buffer.
Write Control Signal Generator Function
This function generates a write memory cycle (Read Modify Write) which
writes ultrasound data sent from the line buffer to memory. There are two
systems which generate this cycle, making it possible to repeat writing of the
next requested pixels in a 160 nsec. cycle. This is accomplished by
overlapping the 320 nsec. cycle of the two Read Modify Write systems by half.
Off Screen Function
The write address in both the X and Y directions is 12 bits, and a virtual

4 - 44

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

image can be developed in a 4096 x 4096 area, but in reality, the memory area
where ultrasound data can be written is only 512 x 512 in size. Therefore, the
virtual write area is regarded as off screen area and the writing operation is not
performed. However, since the virtual write area also operates the address
counter, the XY Boundary Calculator's INCX and INCY are used as is in the off
screen area. After entering the memory area (on screen area), fetching from
line buffer memory begins and writing to actual memory is done, and INCX and
INCY, which are added to the memory write data, operate the write address
counter.

MEMORY CYCLE CONTROL


In this block, control of writing to and reading from memory is executed in accordance
with memory control signals generated by WRITE CONTROL and DISPLAY CONTROL.
Also, this block includes the function for reading and writing of display memory data from
the CPU during a freeze operation, and generates memory cycles and addresses for
accessing direct image memory by the CPU. It sets the X direction address (9 bit) and Y
direction address (9 bit) of the data to be accessed, specifies the surface and sets
increment/decrement. After setting is completed, the CPU can read and write to the
access data register.
If the CPU is accessing continuous pixels in the vertical direction, the auto increment
function, which makes resetting of the address (Y direction) unnecessary after each access,
operates. After the initial access address is set, the CPU can read the data for 1 line in the
vertical direction continuously.

DISPLAY CONTROL
This block reads image data written in main memory in synch with the TV signal and
carries out TV display.
Since main memory uses dual port memory, writing to RAM and reading from SAM is
done asynchronously. Therefore, TV display of image data can be done according to the
predetermined display format, reading of the contents of the SAM block can be executed
and can be displayed by Serial Reading.
Display Mode (One Screen Display Function, Complex Display Function)
The following display controls can be performed.
1B
2B
Wide 2B
1M
Left-Right B/M
Wide Left-Right B/M
In the case of one screen display, in accordance with the display address determined
by the display mode, transfer to the SAM block of memory is executed before TV

4 - 45

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

display begins, then in accordance with the display area signal, reading of display data
from the SAM block is carried out.
In the case of complex display, in order to display Left-Right 2 screen main
memory according to the display format, while TV display of screen 1 is being carried
out, data for display of screen 2 are being transferred to the SAM block (Real Time
Read Transfer) to carry out complex display.

Scroll Display Function


This function causes the latest write data of the sweep image to be constantly
displayed at the far right of the TV display screen. The scroll display transfer
address is generated by deleting the value of the TV display width from the sweep
image data's write address, and fetching the data in the resulting address in synch
with the TV field signal (VD).
Request Display Function
In the complex display mode, this function forcibly switches from the complex
display mode to the One Screen display mode. In the case of the Real Mode, since
the write mode is the same as the complex display mode, a back plane write operation
is performed and the display mode only is switched. (A request display is possible
in both a Real operation and a Freeze operation.) When in the 2B Mode, one side is
a Real display, but a freeze screen and request display can be performed on the active
screen. Furthermore, writing of the back active screen is performed even during a
Freeze screen request.
Transfer and Refresh Cycle Generation
Each time the TV display is repeated in the horizontal direction, one transfer cycle
and 16 refresh cycles are generated. This memory cycle is given top priority. So
that it will not overlap with other cycles, an 8 clock duration inhibiting cycle is
provided. When in the Complex Display mode, in addition to this, a Real Time
transfer cycle is generated for right screen display data. This cycle is also provided
with an 8 clock duration inhibiting cycle. The 16 refresh cycles are provided to
divide the cycle in CINE.

TIMING GENERATOR
This block generates synchronization signals for TV, TV display area signals, memory
read control signals, latch signals for fetching data from PARAMETER ROM under
GEU I.T. F and WRITE CONTROL, and PARAMETER ROM address signals.

D/A CONVERSION
This is for operating conversion again for digitally processed 8-bit image data and
outputting TV Composite Video signals.

OPTION DETECTOR
This is to detect the attachment of optional unit (Mechanical probe scanning unit) and
send data to CPU

4 - 46

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

CLOCK GENERATOR
The reference clock generated by the crystal oscillator is divided and 25 MHz, 12 MHz
and 6 MHz synchronization clocks are generated. An A/D conversion clock is also
generated as a countermeasure for jitter during A/D conversion.
Jitter during A/D conversion occurs because the operating frequencies of the GEU and
DIU are not synchronized. The A/D conversion fetch clock synchronized with the GEU
(synchronized with the USBLK_ signal) is created from 50 MHz on the DIU side,
resulting in a reduction of jitter. Accordingly, it is possible to settle the deviation by the
asynchronous portion with the deviation of 1 pulse in 50 MHz. Also, the same kind of
situation occurs when fetching VTR data, so a synchronized clock is generated in HD/.

4-5-8. CINE MANAGER & CINE MEMORY


This CINE memory is a large capacity display memory capable of storing 32 screens (in
the case of the 1B mode) of ultrasound display image data before freezing.
This CINE memory is the same as the 16 blocks of DIU display memory and the
arrangement of the CINE memory is the same as that of main memory, with a 2 x 2 chip
configuration. The main memory has a capacity for 16 blocks and is arranged in the
horizontal direction. In this way, the address for writing one screen area of main memory,
data and control signals can be used as is and the same image data as in main memory can be
written to CINE memory. However, since only the write addresses for one screen area, data
and control signals are sent from main memory, this clock controls the screen addresses for 32
screens and controls writing of CINE memory. When this is done, control of the L screen
and R screen in the DIU is controlled by the highest bit (MA8) in the memory address, so it
competes with the 32 screen control of the CINE memory. For this reason, the MA8 in
CINE memory is generated by CINE memory and carries out supply control.
If CINE memory is installed, the display from B image CINE memory is a pseudo PingPong display. A pseudo Ping-Pong display is a display system which reads a terminate
image frame after writing of image data from CINE memory is ended.

SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

4-5-12. PHI (PHYSIO MEMORY)


This system receives the analog signals from the amplifier, saves the signals in the memory,
and outputs them by synchronizing with the TV signals. The unit consists of the plane
mode block and sweep mode block. The plane mode block receives the analog data from
the amplifier, interpolates the analog signal for display, writes the data in the separate
memory (not the ultrasonic data display memory), and displays the signals on the plane
mode image. The sweep mode block receives the analog signals from the amplifier,
interpolates the signals for display, writes the data in the DIU display sweep mod data area,
and displays the signals on the sweep mode image. The ECG signals are displayed on the
plane mode image, and the ECG and PCG signals are displayed on the sweep mode image.

A/D conversion
The signals sent from the unit are ECG signals, ECG signals plus offset, and PCG
signals plus offset. These signals and divided into plane mode display data and
sweep mode display data. Offset is not added to the plane mode display.

The

signals with offset are used in the sweep mode display. The unit receives the data
with offset and raw data. The data is converted (A/D conversion) separately for
display in each mode.

The input channels (4) to the A/D converter are sampled

periodically and the data is sent to the following process blocks.

The sampling

clock frequency is 32KHz. The remaining channel is not used.

Plane mode signal process block


This block processes the ECG signals to overlay and display on the plane mode
image. The A/D converted ECG data is read into the line memory and read out
with TV synchronized signals. The read out signals are sent to the DIU board and
displayed as overlaid signals. This block has an interpolation circuit to display the
waveforms that can be viewed and can display the markers that are synchronized
with the R-wave.

Scroll display
The board only supports the scroll display.

The sweep speed can be adjusted by

setting the register (timer). Normally, a 4-second/screen speed is used.

Write control
The memory can handle data for two (display) screens and eight (store) screens.
Memory is managed by screens so that more data can be stored. The CINE
managers control the write memory.

4 - 76

The memory write cycle is done only while

MN2-0218
SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

the TV display is blanked.

Display mode
By setting the reading memory, data can be displayed randomly. The left and
right channels can also be displayed. The memory can also handle a 2B display
request.

The horizontal display position is fixed but the vertical display position

can be changed by unit of 2 pixels.

Signal store function


The memory can store the data for 8 screens. The store function retains a froze
screen by setting a new write memory. In an actual operation, screens 0-10 are
allocated to each screen. When the manager stores the screen data for real display,
it retains the data with the screen number and the display address, and protects the
stored screen by setting the real display screen as the other screen. When the
manager views the stored screen, the process is reversed.

The manager retains the

screen number (of the real display) and the display address, and sets the stored
screen to display. The CINE memory manager controls the screens in a store
operation.

Erase
This function erases one line (512 pixels) of line memory. The function can erase
data by units of screens. This cycle is also executed during display blanking
(same as a memory write). One screen is erased in 41us.

Sweep mode signal process block


This blocks writes the ECG signals, PCG signals and marker on the sweep mode
image memory. To synchronize the phase with the sweep image, the block writes
the interpolated data (synchronized with the sweep image data memory write) in the
main memory at the same time. To write the data in the main memory at the same
time, this data can be handled the same as image data at the time of a CINE scroll.

Signal interpolation
The board has an interpolate circuit to display the easy-to-look waveforms on TV.
The data is sampled by the sweep image write rate, but the PCG waveforms have
high-reflected frequencies and the waveform regeneration capability is decreased.
As for the PCG signals, the highest and lowest values during the sampling period
are erased to improve the waveform regeneration. Interpolation is done to the data
read from the memory.

SECTION 4 Principle of System Operation

ECG Sync. mark display


The board displays a marker that is synchronized with the R / DLY signal sent from
the GEU.

The vertical direction display width can be adjusted. The same

number of pixels are displayed in the upper and lower segments of the ECG
waveform height with the R / DLY phase.

shooting as described herein, every engineer concerned should duly take the following precautions:
1)

Never remove any part from the electric system, including PCB, probe, cable, etc., before
powering off the equipment.

2)

Do not proceed to a disassembly of equipment without observing the established disassembly


procedure. Be careful enough for wrongly disassembling the equipment would damage or
break it down.

3)

To make certain of a voltage and/or a signal waveform, it is necessary to thoroughly know


the specification and handling procedure relating to a measuring instrument employed.

4)

To ground a measuring instrument probe or the like, it is naturally necessary to know where a
signal to determine is grounded. Before using the instrument, moreover, make certain for
which the grounding terminal is intended, analog, digital, alternating current, direct current,
high voltage or low voltage.
CAUTION Failure to ground properly might result in an incapability of
observing an accurate voltage or waveform or in a probability of
burning out the measuring instrument or ultrasound diagnostic
equipment or both.

5)

Do not fit a measuring instrument probe or the like to a measuring point before turning off
the ultrasound diagnostic equipment.
CAUTIONTo determine an especially high voltage, it might rupture a circuit in
the ultrasound diagnostic equipment. Besides, it might endanger a
engineer or engineers concerned.

SECTION 6 TROUBLESHOOTING

6)

To replace or repair a PCB, make certain of its compatibility, etc, in accordance with the
"History of SSD-1000".
If a wrong ROM should be mounted on a PCB, employ the ROM originally employed in the
user's equipment or select an appropriate one in accordance with the History.
CAUTION If an incompatible PCB should be inserted into the equipment, there are
possibilities that the equipment may be burnt out. If such
incompatible PCB should remain inserted in the equipment after
completion of a repair, moreover, it should be fully noted that another
problem may take place newly.

7)

Without definitively knowing that failure has taken place, do not unnecessarily change any controls
and/or switches on a PCB from their original settings.
To determine whether or not a problem is the failure, see Section 8 "Performance Check."
If a readjustment is required, see Section 7"Adjustment Procedure."
CAUTION An unnecessary change of controls' or switches' settings might bring
about a new problem, probably making the equipment unrepairable.

8)

While you are shooting trouble in accordance with the present procedure, it may be necessary
to consult with Technical Support. In such a case, provide at least the following information:

i)

Equipment model number,

ii) Equipment serial number,


iii) History of equipment (repairs and/or modifications so far made), and software
version, and
iv) Specific problem situations (Send a photo or photos.)

6-4-5 Resetting the Backup Memory (RAM)


A backup feature is available to normally store the user's settings. In normal use, it will not be
necessary to erase all the information so stored. It is necessary, however, to reset the backup
memory with reference to the item 6-4-6 given below in any of the following events:

CAUTION Resetting the backup memory will erase presettings, hospital name and so
on.
To set them all over again after resetting the memory, it is necessary to
record the set information by the use of a printer, such as "Echo Copier"
or the like, or to copy the set information in the "PRESET DATA
SHEET" described in 6-4-11.
Do not use customers printer, meanwhile, before obtaining consent to do
so.
1)

When the software has been altered for an upgrade or for any other reason,

2)

When an unnecessary (abnormal) character or characters or code or codes is displayed


in the data which have been set by the user.

3)

When the system fails to start up even if the equipment is powered on.
Under such a circumstance, resetting the backup memory is a mere provisional action
consistently. To make a substantial repair, refer to 6-4-9 and 10. In such a situation,
moreover, it is impossible to store the set information, such as presettings, etc.

WARNING Never use the RAM resetting method effective on our conventional
equipment. In other words, never short circuit the RAM power supply
pin with the grounding pin to reset the backup RAM. If so, the backup
battery will break down.

Correction for fail to start or locking up


If the system does not stand to operate or locks up suddenly, following procedures to repair
are specially adopted.

(1) First, check the output voltage from the power supply unit.
Whole of system is controlled by MPUs (Micro Processing Unit), If these MPUs
should not be supplied with +5V power from the power supply unit or should have
an abnormal voltage, it will bring about a problem affecting the entirety of the
system.
Even if the power supply unit has a normal output, cabling may be disconnected on
the way or a problem may have taken place in distributing the power in PCB to be
powered.
The EP399000/EP43050* CPU board is equiped with a CPU.

(2) Trouble of BUS signal


If Bus signal seems abnormal, it is difficult to find malfunction point. In the case
of locking up of the system, please try to repair it referring the following table (tbl.
6-2 ).
And we advise you to contact to technical support as soon as possible.
The names of signals used in the table are described below.
CPU_ADRS : Address bus for MPU which controls the system of DSC
CPU_DATA : Data bus for MPU which controls the system of DSC
GEU_ADRS : Address bus for controlling the Tx/Rx system

Probe
Confirmation by Use of Another Probe or Unit.
Make a checkout of performance, using a probe of the same model number as that in which the
failure has taken place, if possible. To check from performance, moreover, connect the
apparently failed probe with a system of identical type available as a substitute, if any.
Coin Check (refer to the SECTION 8 PERFORMANCECHECK)
Set the system in B mode and slowly move a fine metal bar, such as a resistor lead or the like,
from end to end while fitting it to the probe lightly on the surface. Then, observe the ultrasound
image on the screen. There are possibilities that the probe may have ailed if the problem should
fall in any of the following cases while moving the metal bar:
[Faulty state]

If any of the following matters is found while the metal bar is moved, the
probe is suspected to be faulty:

1) Echo gap at one location:


If the probe is normal, the failure has taken place on the PROBE SELECTOR or TX / RX
CCT.
2) Echo gaps at two or more locations at equal intervals:
If the probe is normal, the failure relates to the signal lines covering the crystal on the
probe.
3) Two or more echoes appear at equal intervals.
A failure of the signal line provided on equal terms with a transducer of the probe.
4) Echo gaps over a certain consecutive span:
If the probe is normal, the failure has taken place in the HVS control circuit or from the
PROBE SELECTOR to the probe.
Probe code
In case of abnormality in ultrasound image display format or in automatic display of frequency,
check for probe code of that probe if it is correctly structured or not.
The chart Fig. 610 shows the arrangement of pins in the probe connector.

SECTION 7 ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE

7-1

Introduction
The adjustment points shown in this adjustment procedure are points where the actual ultrasound
image is directly adjusted.

7-2

Attention
In order to avoid some new trouble created by this adjustment procedure manual, the person
performing this adjustment should be restricted to someone who has undergone the Aloka approved
training course and who has a high level of technical expertise and knowledge.
Also, by all means investigate beforehand whether the trouble you are attempting to solve by
adjustment is caused by faulty adjustment or by the failure of one of the circuits. Since
indiscriminate readjustments can be a hindrance to restoring the equipments original performance,
please exercise great caution in performing adjustments.

When actually engaging in adjustments, be careful especially in the following points.


1)

Begin the operation only after switching on the power and letting it warm up sufficiently.(30
minutes or more have passed after throwing the power switch ON.)

2)

When adjusting variable resistors, do not exert greater force on the PCB than necessary.

3)

Some of the variable resistors used in S.M.T. (Surface Mount Technology) may be smaller in size
than those used in the past. When adjusting these devices, be sure to use a driver that is
appropriate for each specific variable resistor.

4)

Do not touch any variable resistor or any variable coil, etc. which is not specifically indicated in
these procedures. There is danger of altering the circuit to the point where restoration of function
will become impossible.
