24G SAS Drive Breaker Module

24G SAS Drive Breaker Module

Part Number: QTL2542, QTL2543

Product Details

Extend your testing to the latest SAS4 enterprise drives

Provides full hot-swap automation for 24Gb/s SAS/SATA drives. The module has full control over power, data and present pins, allowing simulation of any possible hot-swap scenario.

Individual control of each signal, pin bounce and high speed glitching combine to greatly increase the number of test cases you can perform.

Sideband drive and monitor allow for advanced test scenarios.

Drive breaker modules can be used individually for simple bench testing, or multiple units can be used to automate an entire storage enclosure.

Each drive module requires one port on a Torridon Controller.
