Gen5 PCIe U.3 Module

Gen5 PCIe U.3 Module

Part Number: QTL2662 / QTL2661

Product Details

Perform full hot-swap and physical layer fault injection with GEN5  U.3 drives, introducing our updated Gen5 PCIe U.3 Module.

Provides full hot-swap automation for GEN4 drives using the latest U.3 (SFF-TA-1001) specification. This module works with any U.3-compatible device, regardless of the protocol used – and offers support for Tri-mode drives.

The module has full control over power, data (dual port) 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. ‘Driving’ is available on some sideband pins. This allows a range of additional tests to drive signals high/low rather than just disconnecting them. The ‘+Triggering’ version has an additional MCX trigger IN/OUT to sync with external test equipment.

Modules can be used individually for simple bench testing. Multiple units can be used to automate an entire storage enclosure.

Each Gen5 PCIe U.3 Module module requires one port on a Torridon Controller.
