BusXpert Protocol Analyzer

SAS/SATA Protocol Analyzer

BusXpert PRO 6G SAS / SATA Analyzer rev. B
The SerialTek BusXpert PRO features HDminiSAS or SATA connectors for 4 port connections, buffer sizes up to 36 GB, and a small form factor for portability. Multiple units can be cascaded together to record multiple ports, simultaneously, and view them in one integrated display. All BusXpert PRO Series analyzers also come with free product support, and no software maintenance fees for the life of the analyzer.
 
BusXpert Micro II 12G 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 72 GBs (planned support) of capture buffer, hardware accelerated gigabit Ethernet, pre-indexed and compressed trace data and multiple analysis processors.
 
BusXpert Micro 6G SAS / SATA Analyzer
The BusXpert Micro Series SAS and SATA analyzer has a very portable form-factor, making it a preferred choice for those developers needing a compact platform with minimal noise and real estate. Its small size also makes it easy for field engineers to take on the go and to move from bench to bench in the lab. The analyzer itself comes with several status LEDs for a real-time, visual reference of what is occurring on the bus. It also supports external trigger in/out for those needing to trigger a scope or logic analyzer. The BusXpert Micro Series is our most popular SAS/SATA analyzer for complete SAS and SATA protocol analysis.
 
BusXpert MicroLite 6G SAS/SATA Analyzer 
The BusXpert MicroLite SAS and SATA analyzer share the same form factor as the SAS/SATA BusXpert Micro, making it a preferred choice for those developers needing a compact platform with minimal noise and real estate. Its small dimensions also make it easy to take it on the go for field engineers and for moving from bench to bench in the lab. The analyzer itself comes with several status LEDs for a quick visual reference of what is occurring on the bus. It also supports trigger in/out for those needing to trigger a scope or logic analyzer
 
PCI Express Protocol Analyzers(with NVMe Support)

BusXpert PRO 8G PCIe/NVMe Gen 2, 3 Protocol Analyzer 
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. It provides the same ease of use, multiple display views, powerful triggering and attractive price points that have long been hallmarks of SerialTek storage protocol products.
 
BusXpert Micro 8G PCIe/NVMe Gen 2, 3 Protocol Analyzer 
The BusXpert Micro PCI Express® (PCIe®) analyzer is SerialTek’s second analyzer designed and optimized for equipment manufacturers that are developing storage products and solutions using PCI Express technology. With support for data rates of 2.5 GT/s, 5.0 GT/s (Gen 2) and 8.0 GT/s (Gen 3) and bus widths of x1, x2 and x4, the Micro provides accurate capture, analysis and deep insight of PCIe traffic at all layers of the protocol stack. 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.
 
INTERPOSERS for BusXpert PCI Express Analyzers
SerialTek provides two market-leading PCI Express® (PCIe®) protocol analysis solutions, the BusXpert PRO and the BusXpert Micro, for the design and test of products that integrate PCIe technology; this includes host bus storage adapters, computer systems, servers and storage products.
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.
 
ADAPTERS for BusXpert advanced PCI ExpressAnalyzers
There are testing requirements that need the ability to switch between different form-factors such as changing from a slot (host side) to a U.2 (device side). (Note: U.2 was previously known as SFF-8639). It is specifically for this reason that SerialTek provides PCI Express Advanced Adapters.
The adapters are offered in three form-factors: slot, M.2, and U.2 for both host and device sides. These adapters are compliant with the PCI Express 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 specifications and support data rates up to 8 GT/s.
 

BusMod Error Injector & Jammer

SAS/SATA
BusMod Micro 6G SAS / SATA Error Injector & Jammer
The BusMod Micro series is perfect for those who need small form factor and low port count error injection. It is the same chassis as the BusXpert Micro and can be cascaded together with a BusXpert Micro to analyze and jam at the same time.
 

Accessories

BusXpert Logic Adapter with DEVSLP
The BusXpert Logic Adapter serializes and transmits 24 logic signals to a BusXpert analyzer, enabling capture of both logic signals and serial data simultaneously. The BusXpert Software displays the captured logic signals and serial protocol side-by-side, making it easy to view the timing relationship between them. The Logic Adapter transmits the serialized logic to the analyzer initiator port via a standard SATA cable, or to the target port via a SATA crossover cable. The BusXpert Analyzer can trigger on any combination of logic and/or serial data.
 
BusXpert 12Gb SAS Signal Splitter
The 12Gb SAS 3.0 protocol poses unique challenges to today’s developers and implementers. The SerialTek 12Gb SAS Splitter helps meet these challenges by allowing users to view and analyze 12Gb SAS signals with the use of a SerialTek’s BusXpert Pro II protocol analyzer and a high-bandwidth oscilloscope. The SAS Splitter uses an analog splitter to drive copies of the input signals to SAS devices, analyzer and scope outputs. The splitter includes adjustable linear signal conditioners which can be tuned to compensate for effects introduced by extra cable lengths, connectors and board traces.
