Enclosures

The E-Series enclosures provide a variety of ways to scale the testing of a multitude of devices, such as 2.5" NVMe/SAS/SATA SSDs or PCIe edge cards. Integrated right into the OakGate platform, these external enclosures provide per device power control and measurement capabilities. They are specifically designed to accommodate a large number of devices, while helping to optimize lab space and power.

Add-Ons

The newest member of the E-Series family, the 12-Bay U.2 enclosure, provides a simple, flexible way to test several mixed-protocol (NVMe/SAS/SATA), single/dual-ported 2.5" SSDs using a U.2 connector.

    12-Bay U.2 Enclosure

    The E-Series 12-Bay U.2 Enclosures provide a simple, flexible way to test several mixed-protocol SSDs when connected to an OakGate expandable desktop or 3U rackmount appliance. This 3U-rackmount enclosure allows testing of up to twelve SSDs that use a U.2 (SFF-8639) connector. The SVF engine software, supplied with the appliance, can exercise each SSD individually, as well as provide built-in power cycling and power measurement capabilities.
