Teledyne LeCroy enables Validation Testing of Solid-State Storage Power and Sideband Capabilities

OakGate R350-G5-PowerPlus SSD Validation Solution tests ALL required PCI Express® 5.0 Power and Sideband capabilities without costly 3rd-party power interposers

Loomis, CA, August 1, 2023 – Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in protocol test and measurement solutions, is pleased to announce availability of the OakGate R350-G5-PowerPlus™ 3U Rackmount Appliance for PCI Express® 5.0, with solid state drive (SSD) power and sideband test capabilities.

Data centers and Hyperscaler’s are measured on their power sustainability and power usage goals and require SSD vendors to test SSD performance during normal system shutdown, abnormal system shutdown, power surges, low and/or idle power states, and voltage fluctuations.  SSD vendors would ideally like these test results to highlight competitive product differentiators, often citing lower active power consumption, better power efficiencies and/or reduced cooling efficiencies. SSD design and validation test engineers can now use the OakGate R350-G5-PowerPlus Rackmount Appliance to analyze voltage and current over time and under stress to determine SSD power utilization, efficiency, and consumption, and possibly find opportunities to improve SSD power consumption. Moreover, the R350-G5-PowerPlus operates without the use of 3rd-party power interposers, reducing cost and simplifying test setup.

Teledyne LeCroy’s OakGate R350-G5-PowerPlus supports one 8-Bay Module capable of holding U.2, M.2, U.3, CEM, EDSFF E1.S or EDSFF E3.S/L SSD form factors which can be easily changed by the customer. The OakGate R350-G5-PowerPlus comes standard with the industry’s most widely used test software, SVF/Enduro, supporting:

·        deep protocol inspection and analysis,

·        high-performance traffic generation,

·        full-performance characterization,

·        complex error injection,

·        and advanced test automation.

The open application programming interface (API) allows easy integration into existing test infrastructure.  Additionally, the customized, proprietary driver works directly with the SSD hardware, providing the highest level of performance with low latency and consistent, repeatable test performance.


OakGate R350 PowerPlus PCIe 5.0 Validation Appliances can be ordered now.
