Serial ATA Test Fixtures

Our TF-SATA test fixtures facilitate Serial ATA compliance testing when used with Tektronix DPO/DSA70804 or similar digital oscilloscopes; P7380SMA, P7313SMA or similar probes; and the Tektronix Serial ATA Test Utility software. Note that these test fixtures can also readily be used with other manufacturers' oscilloscopes and probes.
