The Serial ATA Pod turns the Bus Doctor into a full-featured SATA protocol analyzer, with the depth, ease-of-use, protocol decoding and statistics that are needed by software and systems testers. It also provides the features needed by hardware engineers including multi-level triggering, filtering, state configuration post-capture filtering of Serial ATA packets
Serial ATA (SATA) Displays
At the Command level, the Serial ATA analyzer provides a big-picture view for testers who are troubleshooting system-level or application-level issues. You can easily identify the direction of each command, the FIS type or type of out-of-band (OOB) signal, description, and time stamp.
The State display provides decoding of each Double-word transfer for users who need to monitor Serial ATA software, device drivers, or firmware. If you want to see the Data Byte Name and value, scrambled data, 10b data patterns, and running disparity for each event, just mouse-over the data column and a pop-up window will show you the information.
