SCSI Toolbox Suite

Engineering storage devices requires many different types of tools. The SCSItoolbox is perfect for quickly and accurately confirming design and engineering decisions.

From command compliance to regression and long term testing, to generating SCSI level traffic, the SCSItoolbox has many uses in the engineering lab.

  1. Command Compliance
    Command compliance testing allows a device to be checked to insure that legal SCSI commands are executed properly, and also to check that illegal SCSI commands are failed in the proper manner with the proper error codes.

    Engineers working on device firmware need to check compliance during initial development stages, and during subsequent maintenance stages regression testing needs to be done to insure that no change has "broken" old compliance.

    The SCSItoolbox has a complete test to check command compliance as well as reserved-bit illegal command testing.

    In addition the User Defined CDB and CDB Sequencer tests allow quick spot testing of individual commands or groups of commands.

  2. DVT testing
    Design Verification Testing is used to insure that all functionality and operations of a device are tested for proper operation.

    DVT testing usually consists of many different test sequences which can take a long time to run.

    The SCSItoolbox Disk and Tape Screening/Manufacturing Test modules allow an unlimited number of tests to be defined in a test sequence. As these tests execute the results are logged to an Access database, allowing in-depth analysis.

  3. Stress testing
    Device Stress testing involves operating the device at the extreme limits of its design range.

    Being able to fully define all phases of a test allows stress tests to be tailor written for any given device.

    The pre-defined tests included in the SCSItoolbox allow a large range of flexibility in setting test parameters. And for complete test control the Developer Toolbox (included at no charge with the SCSItoolbox) allows any type of customized test to be quickly written using either Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual C++.

  4. Long-term testing (ORT - Ongoing Reliablity Testing)
    Long-term testing procedures need to be reliable, and need to treat each device under test as a completely independent and isolated unit.

    In addition, data collection during long-term testing needs to be complete and use a method that lends itself to thorough analysis.

    The Disk and Tape Screening/Manufacturing Tests test each separate device with an independent test thread. In addition, for total isolation between devices under test each device can be attached to it's own separate host bus adapter.

    Complete data is logged to an Access data base, so no text file interpretation is ever needed.
