Non-destructive ultrasonic testing has developed an important development in new imaging techniques such as zone focusing combined with DDF, and FMC TFM processes. Nevertheless, most of the electronics on the market do not allow access to elementary raw data and therefore the development of new techniques. This communication therefore presents an open and flexible electronic and software platform for the development and implementation of new imaging methods. This allows you to completely parameterize the electronic equipment and to have access to all of the raw data. The instrument has a USB3 and other high speed communication interfaces. Development can be done in any language including Matlab and Labview. We show some examples of imaging performed with this system with various results on actual test pieces.
