PORTLAND, Ore., April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- USB Plugfest #27 -- SerialTek announces a revolutionary new product for testing and developing with USB Superspeed, the BusMod USB Error Injector/Jammer. The BusMod USB Error Injector is the industry's first error injection solution designed for testing live traffic in real environments. It builds on the powerful GUI of the SerialTek BusXpert line of SAS, SATA, and USB analyzers and error injectors by adding capabilities for causing unusual valid traffic and errors on a live data stream bi-directionally. This allows developers the ability to test real-time error handling, system recovery, and duplication of errors seen in the field.
SerialTek's BusMod USB Jammer, in addition to the SerialTek BusXpert USB Analyzer, forms a formidable combination for USB Superspeed development by capturing, changing, and displaying traffic on the USB bus. Developers can modify and remove USB Superspeed traffic bi-directionally. Test cases such as specifying invalid field values in link management packets, causing HP credit timeouts, removing ACKs from a sequence, and powering down the bus with outstanding Stream IDs can all be easily scripted and executed. Other types of errors, such as CRC, 8b10b, and disparity can be generated as well.
"Developers are always looking for a way to break the system," says Dale Smith, President and Chief Technical Officer of SerialTek. "We're excited to introduce the USB industry's first error injector as a means to verify design robustness with live traffic between real devices."
The BusMod USB Error Injector is currently in an open beta and can be seen during the USB Plugfest. For more information such as pricing and availability, please contact [email protected]
