SATA Trigger and Decode
WaveRunner 6 Zi oscilloscope using a true hardware protocol trigger for most efficient debug. Triggering capability includes the only SATA Special Control Symbols, SATA Special Primitives, FIS Frames, Error Frames, or Bus Condition triggers in an oscilloscope. Trigger on a specific FIS with specified register settings and ability to specify details about the specific FIS frame required to be triggered on, including specific payload values in specific locations. In addition, the SATAbus TD option provides decode annotation (described below).
The SATAbus D decode annotation option is available for most Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes. It permits link layer decoding of 1.5, 3 and 6 Gb/s SATA physical layer signals. Decode information is annotated on the physical layer waveform. Various sections of the protocol are color-coded to make it easy to understand the protocol traffic. All protocol traffic is also displayed in a table, and a wide variety of search functionality is also included.
