need for cumbersome datasharing practices. TekDrive
allows for data to automatically become accessible,
usable and shareable across
teams and partners, making remote work easier-all
with strong security practices built in.
In addition, TekDrive is the first general purpose test and
measurement file system with scope-like data visualizations.
The software provides ultra-smooth visualization and analysis capabilities that support any modern browser, including
options to view, zoom, pan, measure, decode and analyze full
test and measurement data on any device without the need for
any additional software.
TekDrive was built with the engineer in mind, and boasts
a clean, easy-to-use interface for file organization, management, search, upload and download. It's also architected for
ease-of-integration with secure vendor-agnostic REST APIs
for scripting, automation and analysis. Tektronix provides
SDKs and examples in multiple languages, such as Python,
Matlab and LabVIEW. The TekCloud Developer Program
also provides a secure way for third party developers to add
native TekDrive capability to their devices, instruments and
software applications. With a quick integration, any vendor
of hardware or software can unleash the ecosystem of TekCloud storage, streaming, visualization and analysis into their
products.

New, Enhanced, Workflow Modelling
Tools Reduces Time to Market and
Developer Costs
The problem with assembling IP blocks onto a chip is that it can
be hard to work out how they will interact with one another
and the memory. While the IP blocks will have been pre-verified individually by the vendors, the key questions are how
well they work together and, more importantly, how to optimize this. Sondrel has developed new enhanced workflow
modelling tools for this purpose that reduce time to market,
cut developer costs and optimize architectural design.
The benefit of these enhanced models is that the design can be fine-tuned and optimized for timing without
having to run many different simulations in RTL, and the enhanced visibility reduces
the iterations required to
meet the functional coverage requirements when
generating functional verification simulations. Now,
just the final functional
April 2021	

verification simulation has to be run in RTL as a double check.
As a result, verification time is significantly reduced from
weeks to days, providing reduced costs for developers as well
as faster time to market.
Sondrel claims to be the first company to have created these
workflow-based, modelling techniques. The enhancements
form part of their Performance Verification Environment
(PVE) and are exclusively available to customers as part of
their design service.
Simulation allows detailed analysis of performance bottlenecks, for example, two IP blocks could be trying to access the
same memory page at the same time causing 'thrashing,' creating a bottleneck and slowing the chip down significantly. Big
chips have many subsystems moving massive amounts of data
around, often with significant latency, so eliminating any bottleneck during the architectural design process is vital.

Portable Clamp-On Ultrasonic
Flowmeter
VorTek Instruments has
released the SonoPro® Portable clamp-on ultrasonic
flowmeter. This flowmeter offers high-accuracy
transit-time ultrasonic
technology to deliver accurate and reliable flow metering in a portable design. The
design incorporates matched precision transducers and signal processing circuitry to accurately measure the flow of most
liquids over a wide range of velocities. Clamp-on transducers
create no wear, zero pressure loss, and do not require process
interruptions to install them since they are attached to the outside of the pipe. With the addition of external temperature
inputs, SonoPro Portable can provide a reliable (BTU) energy
or mass flow measurement.
SonoConfig™ Instrument Interface Software works in conjunction with SonoPro Portable to provide valuable setup,
diagnostic, and data logging tools. SonoConfig is available for
free download and works on most Android® phones and tablets. It can also be provided preloaded on a tablet from VorTek
Instruments.
Portable ultrasonic flow metering requires knowing the
thickness of the pipe for which the transducers are mounted.
VorTek Instruments' MT160 ultrasonic thickness gauge is a
compact handheld device that can measure the thickness of
various materials with a high degree of accuracy. This makes
the MT160 an exceptionally useful companion to the SonoPro
Portable flowmeter.
