WinSSD currently only provides support for the 511-bit pattern defined in ITU document O.153 paragraph 2.1. This test pattern is common to many BERT applications. If you need other algorithms, contact Sealevel technical support for assistance.
BERT stands for Bit Error Rate Test. A BERT test provides information regarding the line quality of a serial communications link. A BERT test is included in the Sealevel WinSSD utility.
WinSSD uses the 511-bit pseudo-random test pattern defined in the ITU document O.153 section 2.1. This pattern is one bit short of being 64-bytes long. The first bit of the second iteration of the pattern begins as the last missing bit of the previous pattern. The pattern “wraps” around shifted by one bit each […]
