BusXpert Micro Series

The BusXpert Micro Series SAS and SATA analyzer has a very portable form-factor, making it a preferred choice for those developers needing a compact platform with minimal noise and real estate. It’s small dimensions also make it easy to take it on the go for field engineers and for moving from bench to bench in the lab. The analyzer itself comes with several status LEDs for a quick visual reference of what is occurring on the bus. It also supports trigger in/out for those needing to trigger a scope or logic analyzer. The BusXpert Micro Series is our most capable SAS/SATA analyzer for complete SAS and SATA protocol analysis. It features the industry’s largest buffer, offering options from 2GB up to 18GB. It also has the industry’s most in-depth triggering, with up to three simultaneous sequencers, each sequencer can contain up to 16 states with timers, counters, and the ability to jump anywhere within the sequence. The BusXpert GUI also makes it easier for developers to create triggers, understand what is happening on the bus, and displays the data in a meaningful format.
