Tektronix Wins ARM TechCon Best in Show Award for Embedded Instrumentation Software

Tektronix Embedded Instrumentation Group Recognized for FPGA Validation and Debug Software Tools

BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 11/03/11 -- Tektronix, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, today announced that it has won the ARM TechCon Best in Show Award for Software. The Tektronix Embedded Instrumentation Group, formed out of the recent acquisition of Veridae Systems, won the award for its Clarus and Certus tools for ASIC and FPGA validation and debugging.

"Innovation in the ability to test and analyze products is relentless, so when a novel approach presents itself engineers inevitably take notice. Spinning technology successfully out of university research, commercializing it to a situation where even a market leader desires it, is a tremendous achievement," said Colin Holland, Editor and ARM TechCon Awards Judge, UBM Electronics. "We are pleased to salute with the ARM TechCon award, Tektronix EIG, for its debug and validation software tools that are bringing innovation to engineers."

The inaugural ARMTech Best in Show Awards recognized the best-in-class technologies introduced since the last ARM TechCon. There were three awards: one for Chip Design, one for Software and a third for Hardware. The winners were selected by a group of editors that cover the industry.

"Receiving this award and industry recognition underscores the importance of debug and validation in the overall design process of modern ASICs and FPGAs," said Dave Farrell, general manager, Digital Analysis product line and Embedded Instrumentation Group, Tektronix. "Our tools allow designers to see what's inside these complex Systems on Chip enabling visibility of critical signals at full operating speeds resulting in a planned and shorter validation and debug process."

Clarus is a suite of analysis tools teamed with an IP generator that helps identify the critical signals for debug, instrument them with what is effectively a distributed lightweight on-chip logic analyzer, extract the data from the FPGA or silicon prototype, and interpret the results.

Certus is a multi-FPGA ASIC prototyping validation and debug suite. When paired with a user's choice of prototyping hardware, partitioning flow, and FPGA CAD tools, Certus provides the key enabling technology of a complete prototyping solution.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
