SATA Certification


SATA-IO has added an Interoperability Program as another key segment to the development, management and standardization of SATA. The Program will help ensure interoperability across SATA products, build confidence in SATA technology and promote SATA as the first choice for storage devices with greater speed, simpler upgrades and easier configuration.

The Interoperability Program is a test program created to preserve the integrity of the Serial ATA specification and ensure interoperability across SATA products.

Testronic Labs SATA-IO Certification Program is the equivalent of certification processes outlined in official SATA-IO Compliance Workshops (Plugfest). The product will be tested using procedures as specified in the Interoperability Program Test Procedures. Testronic Labs can perform SATA-IO CERTIFICATION for all product types (Disk Drives; PC Hosts; Port Multiplier; Building Block…).

The SATA Certification program comprises:sata_ssd

  • Product Electrical 1.4 PHY/TSG/OOB/RSG
  • Product Digital 1.4 – GTR/NCQ/ASR/SSP/IPM/DOF
  • System Interop 1.4 
  • Device Mechanical 1.4

When a SATA product succeeds in this “SATA-IO” interoperability program, it can be branded with the SATA Certified logo. SATA Certified products assure a high level of interoperability with other certified devices.

It’s also possible to run the SATA-IO Compliance tests without the submission of the testing results to SATA-IO.ORG or test only a section of the test requirement like the electrical validation only.
