PCIe SSD Test Chamber

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am new here...

I would like to ask help from the community if anyone has any idea on where I can find a test chamber that will test a PCIe SSD. I understand Flexstar Corp is one of the pioneer for having a test chamber on ODD, HDD, and SSD (either 2.5FF or 3.5FF) but I think they don;t have a PCIe SSD test chmaber.

Thank you.

... I'm a bit at a loss here. What is a "test chamber" and what tests does it preform? See how the SSD holds up during extreme temperatures, etc.?? Heat should be faily easily to simulate yourself for instance.

Please elaborate.

A test chamber is an environmental chamber wherein you can program it to have temperatures from -45C to 90C or depending on your profile while running a test on your PCIe SSD hardware. If you have visited Flexstar Corp website (http://www.flexstar.com), they have a chamber that can test SSD (either 2.5FF or 3.5FF). The test chamber has a temperature, humidity control and a small board computer- this is were you hook the SSD and do a test like read/write/verify test while you change the temperature.

I am looking for a test chamber similar to what Flexstar are selling but Flexstar doesn;t have a system that will test PCIe SSD.

Hope this clarifies things.

Thanks.

Not sure you will find quite such a beast, as PCI-e vs. SATA are distinctly and hugely different test markets... not to mention lengthening the PCI-e bus is far, far more tricky.
