The Serial ATA International Organizations (SATA-IO) and Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) T10 standard committees have both released specifications to provide support for 6 Gb/s data transfer between hosts, devices, port multipliers and expanders. At higher data rates, power consumption and emissions become more of a concern on system budgets and physical layer compliance. Link designers seek to find optimum voltages, emphasis levels and edge rates to manage these challenging design limits while ensuring functional protocol operation at the receiver. At the application layer, robust protocol development is required for error handling and error recovery.
What do you need to know about designing and testing SATA and SAS products to ensure they work reliably and meet the standard specifications? This webcast will provide details of Agilent’s industry leading SATA and SAS development and compliance test tools.
