Quarch Technology Ltd - specialists in test automation - today announced a partnership with SerialCables LLC. The deal will give Quarch access to a substantial new customer base and help to sell its products into new segments of the market. Customers will be able to purchase directly from SerialCables while maintaining a direct warranty and support service from Quarch.
"SerialCables has an excellent reputation in the industry and we are very pleased to be working with them. The 'Torridon' test system complements the range of custom cables and breakouts that SerialCables already offers and will allow customers to purchase everything they need for testing from a single source." Andy Norrie - Technical Director - Quarch
SerialCables will be selling the entire Torridon range, including Quarch's latest 'Cable Pull Modules'. These modules allow automated hot-plug and fault injection for a variety of interfaces including; Mini SAS and Ethernet, with USB 3.0 to follow soon.
Cable Pull Modules implement high speed switching of data signals and sequencing logic to emulate the insertion and removal of a cable from a system under test. In addition to automation of cable insertion the module has fault injection capabilities providing a sophisticated method for testing Illegal Topologies, intermittent and hard faults, and error.
"We have received incredible feedback from our client base and feel strongly that our partnership with Quarch will strengthen our product base and allow Serial Cables to service its customers more fully with more complete test solutions and innovation from Quarch Technology." Justin Mutschler - Director of Sales - SerialCables
The Mini SAS cable pull module can be seen in action at SNW (October 11th - 14th). Industry leading storage subsystem provider, Xyratex, will be running a hands-on lab which includes a Mini SAS module to inject SAS faults into their system. This setup demonstrates the abilities of the cable-pull module and the resiliency of the Xyratex enclosures.
