Standalone jammer / error injector system or BIST generator
Support for SAS and SATA 1.5 / 3.0 / 6.0 Gbps speeds
Up to 2-ports of error injection
License by port / speed / protocol for desired configurations
Licensable SATA BIST generation capability
For today´s SAS and SATA developers and integrators, verifying design robustness and error recovery can be a challenging task, especially when it is difficult to duplicate test cases and customer issues.Troubleshooting is further complicated by ever-climbing storage capacities, network architectures, data rates, and protocol complexity. The BusMod Error Injector gives designers the ability to insert a variety of errors into a live data stream to test real-time error handling, system recovery, and duplication of issues seen in the field. Used in conjunction with the BusXpert SAS/SATA analyzers, users can easily verify correct and incorrect responses to issues caused by the error injector. BusMod’s error injection provides the ability to create random and defined line errors such as CRC or 8b10b encoding errors, modify or replace frames, frame data and primitives. Users can also purchase an upgrade license for SATA BIST generation (BIST image here), or buy the U3053A as a stand-alone BIST generator. The BIST generator will put either a drive or host into BIST mode for compliance testing. Combined with a Keysight BERT and a U3051A configured as a Frame Error Rate counter, users can test their physical layer SATA compliance.
