Catalyst Expands Line

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Catalyst Enterprises, Inc., a leading manufacturer of advanced design verification and test tools for Serial ATA (SATA), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS), USB 2.0, PCI Express and other high-performance communications technologies, today announced it has expanded its industry-leading line of SAS and SATA protocol analyzers. The company introduced the new STX-131, a highly economical and extremely portable SAS/SATA analyzer. The STX-131 is intended for use by field engineers and service technicians requiring a powerful, easy-to-use analysis tool to troubleshoot and solve problems in the field.

The outstanding market acceptance of the SAS and SATA protocols is increasing demand for protocol test tools, especially for field use,” said Mark Adams, Catalyst product manager for data storage. “This increased demand allows us to provide a wider range of products and at much lower price points. Field engineering teams that need a simple, portable test system now have an analyzer that meets their needs at less than half the price of Catalyst’s STX analyzers developed for design engineers. In the new STX-131, Catalyst is delivering the cost-effectiveness, portability and essential features field engineers look for in SAS and SATA analysis tools.”
