Addressing New SAS-4 Transmitter and Receiver Test Challenges Webcast

1   Hour | Webcast | Where & When


Serial Attached SCSI – 4 (SAS-4) is the next generation enterprise storage interface that doubles the data throughput from the current SAS-3 standard. SAS-4 has an effective data throughput of 24 Gb/s, and it operates at 22.5 GBaud using a 128b/150b coding scheme that includes Forward Error Correction (FEC). The SAS-4 specification leverages the OIF-CEI 3.1 specification, and present new transmitter and receiver test requirements that deviates from the previous generation SAS standards. For example, the receiver stress signal calibration is no longer based on waveform analysis of the actual stress signal with simulation of a reference receiver characteristic but instead based on a calibration of a transmitter signal of the test equipment and worst case compliant channel. This webcast will provide details to the changes and challenges to testing the new requirements and the solutions to address them.
