LeCroy Expands SAS, SATA Protocol Testing Tools

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- LeCroy Corporation, a worldwide leader for serial data test solutions, today announced it has expanded its industry-leading line of SAS and SATA protocol verification systems. The company introduced the Sierra M6-2, a highly portable, multi-function protocol verification platform for 6G SAS and SATA protocols. The Sierra M6-2 is designed for use by both lab and field engineers who require a powerful, easy-to-use tool to debug protocol and performance issues.

The Sierra M6-2 is a compact two-port version of the popular Sierra M6-4 four-port platform, and includes all the analysis and test capability of the larger unit in a smaller, more cost effective package. The Sierra M6-2 supports a full range of protocol test features, including comprehensive protocol analysis capabilities, host and device emulation, and error injection. A SATA compliance test suite is also available. As with other Sierra systems, customers can select specific features to match their test requirements and budgets, and protect their investment with the addition of new capabilities as their requirements change.

"The outstanding market acceptance of the SAS and SATA protocols is increasing demand for protocol test tools, said Kevin Kearney, LeCroy PSG Manager of Storage Protocol Products. “With 6G capable devices on the horizon, a new generation of test tools is required. The LeCroy Sierra platforms were designed to meet the full range of protocol and performance testing at the new higher speeds.”
