This work describes a scalable digital broadband receive system architecture which no longer limits the number of receive channels that can be connected and provides a consistent signal fidelity independent of the number of channels. In this study, we show that in this architecture increasing the channel count of the system is simply achieved by placing additional coils on the patient support, without modifying anything on installed receive chain of the system as for traditional analog architecture.
