Abstract

Connectors, capable of supporting advanced ultrasound transducers, require significant electronics and mechanical components located within the transducer assembly. Existing connectors have very limited volume within their housing. By moving the locking and latching functions from a location within the connector housing to a location outside, the required volume required for these components is made available.
