Lantronix Contributes to Creation of EchoNous AI-Assisted Handheld Ultrasound Device

Lantronix Contributes to Creation of EchoNous AI-Assisted Handheld Ultrasound Device

Case Study: Open-Q Micro SOM, Development Kit and Engineering Services

Lantronix Inc., a global provider of secure turnkey solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) and the Intelligent IT market, announced that its Open-Q Micro SOM (μSOM), Development Kit and Engineering Services were utilized by EchoNous in the development of Kosmos, the first AI-assisted handheld ultrasound device.

“Lantronix’s Open-Q μSOM delivers the best performance for the cost. Nothing compares to its processing power for small, AI-assisted devices such as the Kosmos handheld ultrasound device,” said Niko Pagoulatos, chief technology officer for EchoNous. “The Lantronix Engineering Services team was integral to the successful development of Kosmos. They met all the engineering challenges while reducing costs and significantly cutting the time to market.”

Case Study Overview

With the support of Lantronix’s Engineering Services team and its Open-Q μSOM and Development Kit, EchoNous’s Kosmos was designed to increase diagnostic confidence at the bedside, enabling clinicians to perform heart, lung and abdominal assessments in just minutes. Its evolving AI platform is based on innovative, deep-learning techniques that solve everyday problems in healthcare.

Challenge: Create AI-Powered Portable Ultrasound Device

EchoNous was challenged to create a portable, tablet-based ultrasound device to give clinicians the ability to instantly perform ultrasound tests on patients and receive immediate results. In addition, the device needed to incorporate AI-based, deep-learning techniques to stay at the forefront of healthcare.

Challenges of creating a tablet-based ultrasound device included:

  • Enable high-resolution ultrasound imaging capability
  • Ensure high-fidelity digital auscultation and integrated ECG
  • Meet the demand for high-power performance
  • Empower AI-based, deep-learning techniques

Solution: Open-Q Micro SOM, Development Kit and Engineering Services

Working with the North American-based Lantronix Engineering Services team, EchoNous was able to develop the Kosmos portable medical ultrasound device. Lantronix’s Open-Q μSOM and Development Kit provided the basis for the device’s development while the Lantronix Engineering Services team provided high-level expertise on the Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, on which the Lantronix solution is based.

Results: Creation of the First AI-Assisted, Tablet-Based Ultrasound Device

With the creation of Kosmos, Lantronix supported EchoNous in developing the first AI-assisted, tablet-based ultrasound device. Together, the team created a powerful handheld ultrasound device with synchronized ultrasound, digital auscultation, ECG testing and proprietary software that enables data to be sent from the ultrasound wand to the table.

With the power of a PC, Kosmos meets extremely high processing-power demands, providing up to eight hours of power for true portability. Its AI platform enables deep-learning techniques that enable it to evolve to solve everyday problems in healthcare.
