Xgig 6G SAS/SATA Analyser

Xgig 6G SAS/SATA Analyser

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA) are evolutionary replacement technologies for the Parallel SCSI and ATA/IDE physical storage interfaces. SAS and SATA storage protocols offer easy configuration and pathways to faster throughput with supported line rates of 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 Gb/s. The Xgig® SAS/SATA analyser is a critically-important tool for engineers developing and troubleshooting products and systems that involve the SAS/SATA protocols. It has advanced features such as cross triggering (internal and external) and expert analysis, which make it an ideal platform for solving challenges with high-speed serial buses.

Industry's Most Advanced Capabilities

• • • • Provides complete visibility into network behaviors with 100% capture at full line rate
• • • • Captures multiple traces with the industry's largest trace memory buffers, up to 16 GB per blade
• • • • Analyzes live traffic of nearly 200 different storage protocols, all from a single platform
• • • • Eases troubleshooting with the industry's most powerful trace and advanced monitoring capabilities
• • • • Hardware-based capture provides unparalleled timestamp resolution up to 5 ns
• • • • Minimizes analyzer's effect on signal integrity with flexible connection methods to simplify test setup and guarantee accuracy

In addition to Xgig's standard capabilities, the 6.0 Gb/s SAS/SATA Analyser:

• • • • Provides protocol-aware analysis at 1.5, 3.0, and 6 Gb/s for both SAS and SATA
• • • • Supports all new SAS-2 primitives and zoning commands
• • • • Accurately analyzes SAS-2 multiplexed traces
• • • • Speeds identification of impairments relating to Out-of-Band (OOB) signaling
• • • • Non-intrusively monitors at full line rate for both SAS and SATA
• • • • Increases signal integrity and reduces user error through simplified cabling
• • • • Yields significant cost savings and simplified set up through flexible multi-user, multi-link capabilities
