MOSAIC: A Scalable reconfigurable 2D array system for NDT

By S. Triger, J-F. Saillant, J. Wallace, F. Afroukh, L. Wang, S. Cochran and D.R.S. Cumming

Abstract

This paper documents the development of a scalable 2D array system, or Mosaic that can be targeted at a wide range of NDT applications by way of a reconfigurable tile that can be tessellated to form arrays of any size and shape. Close coupling permits utilization of excitation voltages as low as +/-3.3V with insertion loss of 48dB on reflection from an aluminum back wall at 73mm achieved using 2D arrays without decoding
