Ultrasonic controls efficiency of turbinesNov 29, 2005
-- The new measurement device NivuSonic of the German company Nivus GmbH deploys ultrasonic runtime measurement techniques to precisely determine the flow-rate as well as the flow profile in pipes up to 12m (39ft.) in diameter. Up to 8 ultrasonic sensors provide the data that is digitally cross-correlated in real-time. The development of the electronics focusses on high data throughput to the SDRAM and an optimized use of the available FPGA resources.
"The SDRAM Controller IP from Array Electronics has a surprisingly small footprint and proved to give us an efficient access to external SDRAM memory. We appreciated the good support during core integration as well as the attractive license fees of this high-performance controller" said Markus Uhle, Design Engineer at Nivus.
