Keysight Technologies' N5412B Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) compliance test software for Infiniium oscilloscopes provides you with a fast and easy way to validate and debug your SAS 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 Gbps silicon, host bus adapter, initiator, high-density disk drive or enclosure backplane. The SAS electrical test software allows you to automatically execute electrical checklist tests at SAS interface points, and displays the results in a flexible report format. In addition to the measurement data, the report provides a margin analysis that shows how closely your device passed or failed each test.
To make measurements with the N5412B SAS compliance test software, you also will need a method of connecting to the SAS compliance interface on the electrical mating surfaces of your SAS connector. Keysight currently provides a full set of compliance test fixtures for the SFF-8482, SAS x2 internal drive/backplane connector interfaces. The N5421A SAS SFF-8482 compliance test fixture kit offers connectivity from the SFF-8482 primary and secondary transmitter and receiver differential ports to SMA for connection to Keysight Infiniium 90000 and 90000X Series ultra-high-performance oscilloscopes. The N5421A kit also includes the TX and RX transient circuit test loads. Each of these test circuits is defined in Section 5.7.2, Zero-length test load, in the Serial Attached SCSI - 2.1 (SAS-2.1) Specification.
