DURHAM, USA: SerialTek, a leader in storage protocol analysis, expanded its line of industry-leading test solutions with the introduction of the BusXpert Micro II for 12 Gb/s SAS and 6 Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA).
With key features found in few other SAS/SATA analyzers, the new Micro II is a portable, lightweight unit that supports multiple analysis processors and a new eye diagram display.

Hardware filtering is available to make efficient use of the Micro II configurable buffer, with sizes from 9GBs to 72GBs.
The software provides a number of ways to display the captured traffic, from viewing a command transaction and its associated frames in Transaction view to viewing a frame as it looks in the SAS and SATA specifications in Details view.
