Data Transit Unveils 3.0 Gb/s SAS Analyzer with 4 Port Support

2/23/2004 - Data Transit Corporation, the leading supplier of modular bus protocol analyzers, announces its new 3.0 Gb/s 4 Port SAS protocol analyzer. The new Analyzer operates on SAS/Serial ATA (SATA) data traffic and auto detects at line rates of 1.5 Gb/s and 3.0 Gb/s. Data Transit's 3.0 Gb/s 4 Port SAS Analyzer is the first analyzer to address the 4 port needs of SAS storage equipment. It is designed for 1x, 2x and 4x wide SAS/SATA products such as single and dual ported drives, expanders, host bust adapters and other storage equipment.

The Analyzer's powerful trigger capabilities allow for triggering on SAS Frame types, commands, primitives, and out-of-band (OOB) signals and SATA LBA, command, status, feature and FIS types. Triggers may also be setup for a variety of hardware and software errors. The SAS Analyzer also provides powerful pre-capture and post-capture filters for events and sequences. Over 2 GBs of SAS traffic can be captured and analyzed with the uniquely large memory buffer available on the Analyzer, the most generous in the industry.

The 3.0 Gb/s 4 Port SAS analyzer is supported on the newly introduced RX plus analyzer platform. The RXplus supports up to 252 channels making it ideal for supporting wide serial buses on such protocols such as SAS and PCI express. "We are pleased to bring our signature triggering and filtering capabilities to wide port SAS," said Dale Smith, Founder, President and CTO of Data Transit. "The 3.0 Gb/s 4x Wide Port SAS protocol analyzer delivers all of the functionality of our one port product. In addition, it now features simultaneous multiple lane analysis with source port identification for every frame per lane."

Data Transit is accepting orders for the 3.0 Gb/s 4 Port SAS protocol analyzer and will begin shipping on March 29, 2004. Please contact Data Transit or one of its worldwide distribution partners for pricing information.
