Serial ATA (SATA) and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS & SAS 2) Design and Test

Serial ATA (SATA) and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)

Serial ATA (SATA) is the evolution of the parallel ATA physical storage interface from a parallel bus to a serial bus architecture. Each generation of SATA entails challenges: eSATA, mSATA, and USM.

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a data-transfer technology for moving data to and from storage devices. SAS depends on a point-to-point serial protocol that replaces parallel SCSI bus technology that is commonly used in data centers, workstations and servers

Regardless of the SATA/SAS design challenges you are facing, Keysight offers a complete solution. Work with Keysight and achieve your best design.
