Validation and analytical solutions provider Teledyne LeCroy announced the release of its SVF/Enduro v5.3 software with support for testing flexible data placement (FDP), which lets solid state drive (SSD) suppliers verify performance and compliance for NVMe storage devices.

SSDs struggle with write amplification and power conservation. FDP mode addresses these issues by creating a whole new command set that moves the responsibility of data placement away from the drive controller to the host application. Implemented incorrectly, FDP can result in critical data loss and performance issues. Without the right test equipment, it is impossible to know that the drive is correctly implementing FDP. Drive developers need a method to test that FDP commands are compliant, and that data is being moved appropriately.

SVF/Enduro v5.3 now offers FPD command set test capability from the OakGate test appliance through three options: exerciser, directed tests, and automation. The SVF/Enduro v5.3 is the latest release in a line of OakGate fifth-generation software that has been hardened over a decade in intense test environments at storage customer sites worldwide. 

In addition to flexible data placement, v5.3 includes the following new features:

  • Integration with Summit PCIe Analyzers 
  • Additional NVMe v2.0 and NVMe MI v1.2 features and enhancements
  • Fully integrated power and sideband features 
  • More UNH/IOL directed tests for test teams 

“The functionality of our industry leading SSD test and validation solutions continues to advance at a rapid pace,” said Roy Chestnut, Teledyne LeCroy’s vice president of products. “With this latest version of our software, we are again improving the overall performance of our core software and incorporating many new features requested by our fast-growing customer base.”
