B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual Introduction This user’s guide documents the SATA 2.5 Plug and Receptacle Test Adapters (SATA2.5‐TPA‐P and SATA2.5‐TPA‐R) and the associated Calibration Cables. The two test adapter types, shown in Figures 1 and 2, test SATA interface cables, hosts and devices against the SATA Specification 2.5. The Calibration Cables, presented on Page 15, are used to zero‐out test adapter attributes (using SOLT, with either the 1X‐THRU or the 2X‐THRU). The TPA‐P and TPA‐R test adapter assemblies allow easy access, via SMA connections, to measure or inject Data signals. NOTE: To avoid damaging the cables, use the handling techniques described in the Care and Handling section before making any connections or configuring a test setup. Always use a static‐safe workstation when performing tests, as explained in the “Electrostatic Discharge Information” section. 4 SMAs for High‐Speed Testing Housing

P a g e | 5 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual The SATA 2.5 Test Adapter Care and Handling Precautions The SATA 2.5 Test Adapter requires careful handling to avoid damage. Improper handling techniques, or using too small a cable bend radius, can damage the coaxial cable connections within the adapter housing or the cables themselves. This can occur at any point along the cable. To achieve optimum performance and to prolong the SATA2.5‐TPA’s life, observe the following handling precautions: 



CAUTION 1: Avoid Torque Forces (Twisting) While individual coaxial cables within the test adapter have some rotational freedom, twisting the SATA2.5‐TPA as a unit, with one end held stationary, may damage or severely degrade performance. Adherence to Caution 5 (below) helps to avoid twisting. CAUTION 2: Avoid Sharp Cable Bends Never bend coaxial cables into a radius of 26 mm (1‐inch) or less. Never bend cables greater than 90°. Single or multiple cable bends must be kept within this limit. Bending the SATA2.5‐TPA cables less than a 26mm (1‐Inch) radius will permanently damage or severely degrade test adapter performance. CAUTION 3: Avoid Cable Tension (Pull Forces) Never apply tension (pull forces) to an individual coaxial cable that is greater than 2.3 kg (5 lbs.). To avoid applying tension, always place accessories and equipment on a surface that allows adjustment to eliminate tension on the SATA2.5‐TPA and cables. Use adjustable elevation stands or apparatus to accurately place and support the SATA2.5‐TPA. CAUTION 4: Connect the SATA2.5‐TPA First To prevent twisting, bending, or applying tension to the coaxial cables when connecting a SATA2.5‐TPA, always attach the SATA2.5‐TPA to the device under test (DUT) or cable under test before attaching any SMA connectors. Carefully align the SATA connectors and then gently push the connectors together until fully seated. If the SATA2.5‐TPA must be turned or twisted to make connection to the DUT, avoid using the SATA2.5‐TPA housing alone to make this occur. Try to distribute the torque forces along the length of the test setup and cabling. If this is not possible, it is recommended to first loosen or disconnect the SMA connections at the SATA2.5‐TPA, make the connection to the DUT and then re‐tighten or attach the test equipment leads. NOTE: Only grip the test adapter housing when inserting or extracting the SATA2.5‐TPA to or from the DUT. Pulling directly on the SATA2.5‐TPA cables or using them to insert the SATA2.5‐TPA may cause damage. 
CAUTION 5: Carefully Make SMA Connections To connect the SATA2.5‐TPA SMA connectors, follow these steps: 1.
Hold the cable stationary by grasping the cable at the black heat‐shrink section near the SMA connector. 2.
Insert the mating SMA barrel and hand‐tighten the free‐spinning SMA nut onto the connector while avoiding pulling, bending, or twisting the SATA2.5‐TPA coaxial cable. P a g e | 6 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual 3.
The SATA2.5‐TPA SMA connectors have flats that accept an open‐end 1/4‐inch or 6.5mm wrench. When attaching instrument cables to the SATA2.5‐TPA, it is recom‐
mended that the SATA2.5‐TPA SMA connectors be mechanically held and the test leads be tightened to the equipment manufacturer’s torque recommendations, normally 5 in‐lbs, using a 5/16‐inch open‐end wrench. If the test set‐up requires repositioning, first loosen or disconnect the SMA connections to avoid twisting, bending, or tension. NOTE: A drop in signal amplitude by half or 6db during the testing of a channel may indicate that a cable has been mechanically pulled free of coaxial cable connections internal to the assembly. This could be determined by checking if the cable has any lateral play relative to the TPA. This would only occur when the TPA has exceeded the pull force as specified within the mechanical specification. If the cable cannot be re‐seated, the test adapter will need to be sent back to the factory for service. 
CAUTION 6: Independently Support Instrument Cables or Accessories Excessive weight from instrument cables and/or accessories connected to the SATA2.5‐TPA can cause damage or affect the test adapter performance. Be sure to provide appropriate means to support and stabilize all test set‐up components. P a g e | 7 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual General Test Adapter, Cable, and Connector Observing simple precautions can ensure accurate and reliable measurements. Handling and Storage Before each use of the SATA2.5‐TPA, ensure that all connectors are clean. Handle all cables carefully and store the SATA2.5‐TPA in the foam‐lined instrument case when not in use, if possible. Do not set connectors contact end down. Install the SMA protective end caps when the SATA2.5‐TPA is not in use. Visual Inspection Be sure to inspect all cables carefully before making a connection. Inspect all cables for metal particles, scratches, deformed threads, dents, or bent, broken, or misaligned center conductors. Do not use damaged cables. Cleaning If necessary, clean the connectors using low‐pressure (less than 60 PSI) compressed air or nitrogen with an effective oil‐vapor filter and condensation trap. Clean the cable threads, if necessary, using a lint‐free swab or cleaning cloth moistened with isopropyl alcohol. Always completely dry a connector before use. Do not use abrasives to clean the connectors. Re‐
inspect connectors, making sure no particles or residue remains. Making Connections Before making any connections, review the “Care and Handling Precautions” section. Follow these guidelines when making connections: 






Align cables carefully Make preliminary connection lightly To tighten, turn connector nut only Do not apply bending force to cable Do not over‐tighten preliminary connections Do not twist or screw‐in cables Use a torque wrench, and do not tighten past the “break” point of the torque wrench P a g e | 8 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual Electrostatic Discharge Information Protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD) is essential while connecting, inspecting, or cleaning the SATA2.5‐TPA test adapter and connectors attached to a static‐sensitive circuit (such as those found in test sets). Electrostatic discharge can damage or destroy electronic components. Be sure to perform all work on electronic assemblies at a static‐safe work station, using two types of ESD protection: 

Conductive table‐mat and wrist‐strap combination Conductive floor‐mat and heel‐strap combination When used together, both of these types provide a significant level of ESD protection. Used alone, the table‐mat and wrist‐strap combination provide adequate ESD protection. To ensure user safety, the static‐safe accessories must provide at least 1 MΩ of isolation from ground. Acceptable ESD accessories may be purchased from a local supplier. WARNING: These techniques for a static‐safe work station should not be used when working on circuitry with a voltage potential greater than 500 volts.

SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual Calibration The SATA 2.5 Plug and Receptacle Test Adapters are passive components. Therefore, calibration for the errors generated must occur within the test instrumentation that drives the SATA receiver device or looks at the response of the SATA transmitter device. The SATA2.5‐TPA‐C‐2X cable is used to provide 2X‐THRU functionality. The SATA2.5‐TPA‐C‐1X cable provides 1X‐THRU functionality for calibration. The SHORT, OPEN, and LOAD functionality is provided from a user‐supplied calibration kit. Figure 3. Calibration Cables (SATA2.5-TPA-C-2X, Top) & (SATA2.5-TPA-C-1X, Bottom) P a g e | 15 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual SOLT SHORT, OPEN, LOAD, and 2X‐THRU (SOLT) are calibration standards used to compensate for errors associated with the TPA when used for Jitter measurement, TDR, TDT, and VNA testing. SOLT represents the same electrical length and losses as the TPA through the SATA connector pad, and enables the test engineer to compensate for the following six repeatable, systematic errors that occur when moving the reference plane: 





Signal leakage effects: Directivity errors Signal leakage effects: Crosstalk errors Reflection effects: Source Impedance Mismatching errors Reflection effects: Load Impedance Mismatching errors Bandwidth effects: Receiver Transmission in Test Equipment errors Bandwidth effects: Receiver Reflection‐tracking in Test Equipment errors These errors need to be corrected on each port. Refer to the Instrument Manual for instructions on the instrument’s specific calibration process. NOTE: The reference plane is the boundary, both physically and electrically, between the calibrated and uncalibrated portions of the circuit. Everything outside the reference plane is considered part of the DUT. Any instrument that does not use calibration defines the DUT as the total of externally connected components. If the SATA2.5‐TPA‐C‐1X or C‐2X Calibration Cables are not used, all of the SATA2.5‐TPA and associated coaxial cables, as well as cables connecting the TPA assembly to the test instrument, would be a part of the DUT. Non‐repeatable errors, such as drift or random errors, can be reduced but not corrected. Drift errors aggregate over time or with environmental changes such as temperature shift. To eliminate drift errors, perform another calibration. A random error cannot be corrected through calibration since the error occurred randomly. Random errors are typically associated with either test instrument noise or test repeatability problems. Reduce test instrument noise by increasing source power, lowering the IF bandwidth, or averaging results over multiple sweeps. Reduce test repeatability problems through the use of a torque wrench or, again, by averaging over multiple sweeps. P a g e | 16 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev. B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual 1X­THRU The 1X‐THRU is a calibration feature used to calibrate time domain instrumentation (for example, pre‐emphasized pulse generators or AWGs, arbitrary waveform generators). 1X‐THRU calibration compensates two error sources – cable losses and group delay: 

Cable Losses – Cable losses associated with the SATA 2.5 plug TPA, and its respective cabling that’s connected to the test source, consist of skin loss and, to a lesser extent, dielectric loss. Pre‐emphasis or de‐emphasis is used at the signal source to correct for these cable losses. Pre‐emphasis is a boost of the signal level just after an edge transition; de‐emphasis is a reduction in the low‐speed amplitude of the signal source. Typically, on a de‐emphasized signal the levels have to be reset to attain the same output levels. Resultant signals from either pre‐emphasis or de‐emphasis are identical relative to the DUT. For the purposes of this discussion, pre‐emphasis will be used. To set the pre‐emphasis, first determine the amount of signal boost by connecting the signal source, via the 1X‐THRU and the respective cable used to connect the DUT to the source to a high‐speed oscilloscope or a jitter measurement device. Trigger the oscilloscope or jitter measurement device using a trigger from the source. The trigger, a single event, indicates the start of the signal being sent to the DUT. Adjust pre‐emphasis to maximize the eye opening. Group Delay – Group delay is the second error source for 1X‐THRU calibration. When the DUT generates an output signal, it can be used to measure delay. To create a baseline delay measurement, connect the output signal cable to the input signal cable and the 1X‐THRU. To determine corrected DUT delay, subtract this baseline measurement from the DUT delay measurements. P a g e | 17 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev.

B SATA 2.5 Test Adapter User Manual Glossary of Terms TERMINOLOGY DEFINITION Aggressor A signal imposed on a system (i.e., cable assembly) to measure response on
other signal carriers. Decibel (dB) Ten times the common logarithm (i.e. log10) of the ratio of relative powers.
Informative The designation of a test that is not required for compliance but is considered
important from a characterization standpoint. It is provided for informational purposes only. Insertion loss The ratio, expressed in dB, of incident power to delivered power. Internal cable A cable that is used to connect a SATA transmitter device to a SATA receiver
device within a mainframe. Near‐end crosstalk Crosstalk that is propagated in a disturbed channel in the opposite direction as the propagation of a signal in the aggressor channel. The terminals of the aggressor channel and the victim channel are usually close to each other. Normative The designation of a test that is required for compliance. Return Loss The ratio, expressed in dB, of incident power to reflected power. SATA Initiator Device A device containing SSP, STP, and /or SMP initiating ports in a SATA domain.
SATA Link The SATA link is a full duplex point to point link as continuous data activity exists on each direction. For purposes of compliance testing of Hosts and Devices, the full duplex link is broken into two simplex links, one for the Host transmitting to the Device and the other for the Device transmitting to the Host. Each link is tested for compliance separately. SATA Target Device A device containing SSP, STP, and /or SMP target ports in a SATA domain.
SATA2.5‐TPA SATA 2.5 Test Point Access. A specialized assembly that interfaces to a SATA
receptacle or plug and enables access of signals for measurement or stimulation. Serial ATA (SATA) The protocol defined by SATA (see ATA8‐AAM)
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) The set of protocols defined in SPL and the interconnect defined by the SAS‐
2.1 standard. Victim A signal carrier on a system that has a response imposed on it by other signals in the system. P a g e | 36 © 2010, 2011 Wilder Technologies, LLC Document No. 910‐0011‐000 Rev.
