SerialTek Adds Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) Support for BusXpert Analyzers

SerialTek, a leader in storage protocol analysis, improves upon the capabilities of its analysis solutions for PCI Express® (PCIe®) technology today with the announced availability of Non‐Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) support. Unlike the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (ATA) storage specifications designed for spinning drives, NVMe is a high performance protocol architected specifically for devices and systems that utilize flash and other solid‐state memory storage.

SerialTek offers two analysis solutions for PCIe 3.0 technology that incorporate NVMe support. The BusXpert Pro supports data rates up to 8 lanes at 8.0 GT/s. The new smaller form factor Micro supports 4 lanes at 8.0 GT/s. At 4.5 lbs, the Micro is the smallest and lightest analyzer of its class. The optional 144 GBs of trace buffer on the Pro is many times larger than that offered on competing solutions. Best‐in‐class instruments, SerialTek’s analyzers for PCIe solutions are well‐suited for today’s demanding applications.
