SerialTek

SerialTek is a provider of innovative data storage test tools and solutions since 2007. SerialTek solutions support the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), SATA (Serial ATA), PCI Express (PCIe) and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) protocols.

BusXpert Micro II Series SAS/SATA Analyzer

The new SerialTek BusXpert Micro II revolutionizes the analysis of devices and systems utilizing the high speed SAS and SATA storage protocols. With key features found in few other SAS/SATA analyzers the Micro II is a portable, lightweight unit that supports up to 36 GBs of capture buffer, hardware accelerated gigabit Ethernet, pre-indexed and compressed trace data and multiple analysis processors.


PCI Express Protocol Analyzers (with NVMe support)

The new SerialTek BusXpert PCI Express (PCIe) analyzer is the industry's first analyzer designed and optimized for equipment manufacturers that are developing storage products and solutions using PCI Express technology. Supporting data rates of 2.5 GT/s, 5.0 GT/s and 8.0 GT/s, this advanced offering brings unparalleled and accurate capture, analysis and insight of PCIe traffic at all layers. This SerialTek analyzer supports the PCIe protocol, including all TLP, DLLP, and Ordered Sets, and the NVM Express™ protocol.


BusXpert Micro II PCIe/NVMe Gen 2, 3 Protocol Analyzer

The BusXpert Micro II PCI Express® (PCIe®) analyzer is SerialTek’s third analyzer designed and optimized for equipment manufacturers that are developing storage products and solutions using PCI Express technology. It offers the same ease-of-use, multiple display views, powerful triggering, and attractive price points that are the hallmarks of SerialTek storage protocol products, and adds the benefits of a small form factor and zero calibration. This SerialTek analyzer supports the PCIe protocol, including all TLP, DLLP, and Ordered Sets, and the NVM Express™ (NVMe) protocol.

  • No user calibration required. The SerialTek interposers are linear pass-through designs and the analyzer auto-calibrates.
  • No boot trace required. The SerialTek analyzers use a unique auto-archiving design to automatically capture set up and changes to the Config Space, Registers, and NVMe Queue creation and deletion. This is particularly important to test environments for hot-plug, link resets, and any other situations where the Config Space, Registers, or Queues change.
  • Industry standard (and lower cost) SFF-8644 cables.
  • Large protocol trace capture memory options.

PCI Express Interposers

A wide range of cost-effective and flexible probing options are available for BusXpert Analyzer users. These interposer solutions are designed to provide maximum performance and flexibility when capturing PCI Express communication data between hosts and devices; they include slot, M.2 and U.2 interposers. All SerialTek interposers are compliant with the PCI Express 1.x, 2.x and 3.0 specifications; they are rated for 8 GT/s yet they also inter-operate at lower data rates.
