SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SerialTek announces today the
availability of the the BusXpert Logic Adapter which allows simultaneous
capture of both serial data and logic signals such as SATA DEVSLP. Used in
conjunction with the SerialTek BusXpert Analyzer, the self-contained Logic
Adapter converts logic signals into a serial data stream which can be
displayed side by side with captured serial data.

The Logic Adapter can support up to 24 independent logic signals with user-set
threshold values. These inputs are serialized by the Logic Adapter and
transmitted over a SATA cable to the input channel of a BusXpert Analyzer. The
entire capture and analysis capabilities offered by SerialTek's BusXpert
software, such as triggers, searches and filters, are available to the
captured logic signals as well as normal serial data. Special circuitry is
built in to the Logic Adapter to support the newly defined SATA DEVSLP signal.
DEVSLP is a slow rising logic signal intended to place storage devices into an
extreme low-power state and is targeted for mobile and portable devices.

"SerialTek is proud to be the first company to offer simultaneous capture and
display of both logic signals and serial data with a serial analyzer," said
Dale Smith, SerialTek President and CTO. "SATA DEVSLP is an important standard
in the low-power storage arena and developers need tools that allow them to
view DEVSLP activity. The Logic Adapter provides such a tool that allows
low-power storage developers to work with external logic signals such as
DEVSLP alongside serial data."

"End users want as much battery life as they can get, and standards like
DEVSLP will help lower SSD power consumption and allow consumers to get the
most out of their mobile and portable computing devices," said Ross Stenfort,
Director of Storage Solutions, Flash Components Division, LSI Corporation.
"Through the LSI SandForce® Trusted® program, LSI and SerialTek have worked
closely to ensure that our mutual customers can easily integrate the
power-saving features of DEVSLP into their new system designs."

Serialtek's line of BusXpert protocol analyzers is the industry's leader for
its powerful triggering, high-speed search, and ultra-fast save and display
capabilities. The SerialTek BusXpert Logic Adapter compliments the the
BusXpert Protocol Analyzer by allowing simultaneous capture of serial data and
logic signals such as SATA DEVSLP.
