The Serial ATA Pod turns the Bus Doctor into a full-featured protocol analyzer, with the depth, ease-of-use, protocol decoding and statistics that are needed by software and systems testers. It also provides the features needed by hardware engineers including multi-level triggering, filtering, state configuration post-capture filtering of Serial ATA packets.

COMPATIBILITY
This Bus Doctor Pod is compatible with:
Bus Doctor Rx  



Serial ATA (SATA) Displays
At the Command level, the Serial ATA analyzer provides a big-picture view for testers who are troubleshooting system-level or application-level issues. You can easily identify the direction of each command, the FIS type or type of out-of-band (OOB) signal, description, and time stamp.

The State display provides decoding of each Double-word transfer for users who need to monitor Serial ATA software, device drivers, or firmware. If you want to see the Data Byte Name and value, scrambled data, 10b data patterns, and running disparity for each event, just mouse-over the data column and a pop-up window will show you the information.

Serial ATA (SATA) Triggering
The Serial ATA Analyzer provides you high-level trigger configurations for most common trigger scenarios. The high-level triggers provide drop-down boxes that enable the user to select specific commands, LBAs, sector counts, features, primitives, FIS types and field values, errors, and out-of-band (OOB) signals from a list without memorizing codes or positions. Users can also create and save custom triggers.

Serial ATA (SATA) Analyzer Trace Filtering
The Serial ATA Analyzer allows you to filter out a portion of the data to conserve buffer space. Users can also create and save custom pre-capture filters. After capturing, the Show/Hide controls for the Command and State Listings provide you with a variety of criteria for selection of portions of the trace to display.
