SANBlaze SBExpress-DT4


SBExpress-DT4 (Desk Top Gen4) NVMe Test System

The SANBlaze SBExpress-DT4 (Desktop, Gen 4) is a complete turnkey PCIe® Gen 4 NVMe SSD validation test system. With industry leading Certified by SANBlaze automated testing, the SBExpress-DT4 brings Enterprise Class NVMe validation to the developer's desktop.


The DT4 is 100% Software Compatible with the SBExpress-RM4 sixteen device system. The DT4 provides features —formerly the exclusive domain of the qualification and incoming inspection teams — right to the engineer's desk. Using the same Single/Dual Port U.2, U.3, M.2, EDSFF and Quarch risers as the 16-bay rack mount system, the desk top DT4 packs the same enterprise class features including ZNS,Opal/Ruby, SRIS, Specification Validation, Power Control, Automated Scripting and Python, XML and REST APIs as its big sister the RM4.

The “out-of-the-box” Certified by SANBlaze test suite, or tests highly customized by your qualification team or a customer's inbound inspection team, can be run on the engineer's desk providing a huge time-to-market advantage in finding issues before they leave your workstation. Quiet enough for remote locations and in an enclosure designed for portability using the optional high impact travel case, the DT4 is perfect for your "work at home" environment or to take directly to your customer.


A complete system, fully self-contained, the DT4 can be set up,configured, and testing NVMe devices in under five minutes.
