Performance and compliance test solutions for PCIe 4.0 based SSDs
Teledyne LeCroy OakGate, a company providing high-performance validation solutions for flash storage, has launched validation test appliances and modules that design and test engineers require to ensure performance and specification compliance of Solid-State Drive (SSD) devices.
“In the past decade, OakGate Technology has pioneered the industry’s most advanced SSD validation solutions, and now as part of Teledyne LeCroy, we continue to lead as the first validation solution supporting PCIe 4.0.,” said Anil Gupta, General Manager, Test Appliance Products. “We now have a full set of solutions that will enable our customers to accelerate the launch of PCIe 4.0 NVMe based solid-state storage products.”
Compact and scalable
Teledyne LeCroy OakGate’s new PCIe 4.0 storage validation appliances include the OakGate DC100-G4 Compact Desktop Appliance, OakGate DE200-G4 Expanded Desktop Appliance and the OakGate R300-G4 3U Rackmount Appliance.
PCIe 4.0 versions of the company’s 4-Bay Modules and 12-Bay Enclosures are also available. These modules and enclosures support industry-standard U.2, U.3 and EDSFF Long and Short form factors, allowing customers to scale the number of SSDs that they can test with a single or multiple OakGate appliances.
“With the doubling of data transfer rate per lane from 8.0 GT/s (gigatransfers/second) to 16.0 GT/s, the move to PCIe 4.0 cannot be realized without the ability to test and validate both performance and compliance,” said Bob Weisickle, Strategy & Technology Officer, Teledyne LeCroy Test Appliances. “The new highly-scalable PCIe 4.0 OakGate modules and enclosures follow our current products as they are powered by the industry’s most widely used SVF Pro and Enduro software suite.”
The OakGate Enduro with SVF Pro includes a wide range of capabilities for deep protocol inspection and analysis, high-performance traffic generation, full-performance characterisation, complex error injection, advanced test automation and power cycling for PCIe, SAS, SATA and Fibre Channel. In addition, the open API allows easy integration into the customer’s existing test infrastructure.
OakGate PCIe 4.0 products are available now.
