About SerialTek


SerialTek develops hardware and software tools that allow engineers and programmers to analyze, generate, and modify the serial protocols used by the data storage industry. In other words, SerialTek provides the tools companies need to keep up with the fast pace of the information age.

SerialTek was founded in 2007 by Dale Smith, Rand Kriech, Paul Mutschler, and a team of engineering veterans who all shared a common goal: make analyzers faster and friendlier. SerialTek's staff includes the original inventors of many of the popular features found in protocol analyzers today, including bi-directional state listings, hardware indexing during capture, buffer segmentation with auto-re-arm, ID archiving, ultra-fast histograms, multiple trigger sequencers, and more. SerialTek's Analyzers and Jammers are recognized as the most powerful in the industry.
