SATA (serial ATA) is a serial data bus bus mainly used for the data exchange between PC mainboards and hard disk drives or optical disk drives. SATA was developed from the previous ATA Standard, which was first a parallel bus standard. With SATA, the parallel bus design has changed into a bit serial point-to-point connection, the serial (bitwise) data transmission. Currently SATA supports two data rates:
BitifEye supports automated SATA compliance tests and characterization for
- Gen1: 1.5 Gbps
- Gen2: 1.5 and 3.0 Gbps
Typical test system configuration:
- Gen1/Gen2 Devices (Hard Disk Drives and Optical Disk Drives)
- Gen1/Gen2 Hosts (PC Mainboards):
BitifEye and Agilent Technologies support the SATA Interoperability workshop and plugfest and will demonstrate the newest automated receiver test prototype solution.
BitifEye supports automated SATA compliance tests. You can find the software installer files on our download page.
