Data Transit Announces 3G Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Analyzer

New Analyzer Simplifies Analysis and Troubleshooting of SAS/SATA Products and Dramatically Reduces Time-To-Market

SAN JOSE, Calif. (December 11, 2003) -- Data Transit Corporation, the leading supplier of SAS/SATA modular bus protocol analyzers announces the availability of the 3 Gb/s SAS Protocol Analyzer. The new Analyzer operates on SAS data traffic at line rates of 1.5 Gb/s and 3.0 Gb/s and also supports Serial ATA (SATA).

Data Transitís 3 Gb/s SAS Analyzer has unique analysis features for engineering, manufacturing, and quality assurance testing of SAS/SATA products such as drives and host bus adapters. Over 2 GBs of SAS traffic can be captured and analyzed with the uniquely large memory buffer available on the Analyzer, the most generous in the industry. An intuitive user interface permits captured trace data to be viewed in different formats including command, state and data block listings.

The Analyzerís powerful trigger capabilities allow for triggering on SAS Frame types, commands, primitives, and out-of-band (OOB) signals and SATA LBA, command, status, feature and FIS types. Triggers may also be setup for a variety of hardware and software errors. The SAS Analyzer also provides powerful pre-capture and post-capture filters for events and sequences.

"The combination of 3 Gb/s signaling, multiple protocols, OOB signaling and spread spectrum clocking makes SAS a difficult bus to analyze", said Dale Smith, Founder and CTO of Data Transit, "Our engineers have met the challenge with a rock-solid product. Our new 3.0 Gb/s SAS Analyzer provides a complete single-source solution for engineers working with 3.0 Gb/s SAS/SATA products."

Data Transit is accepting orders for the 3.0 Gb/s SAS analyzer and will begin shipping on December 17, 2003. A flexible, cost-effective upgrade path to the new 3.0 Gb/s SAS Analyzer is available for current 1.5 Gb/s SAS and SATA Analyzer customers. Please contact Data Transit or one of its worldwide distribution partners for more information.
