UltraBlock PCIe Kit
The UltraBlock PCIe enables portable forensic acquisition of PCIe SSDs. With the UltraBlock PCIe you will be equipped to handle the vast array of new laptops and tablet computers that are making use of these high performance PCIe Solid State Drives.
Option up your kit to include PCIe SSD and Firewire device adapters
The UltraBlock PCIe must be used with a Tableau PCIe SSD adapter for each specific PCIe SSD form factor and connector. The PCIe SSD bundle below includes five (5) adapters to connect and collect evidence from most PCIe based storage devices. The PCIe based FireWire adapter supportsimaging of FireWire based drives or Macs in target disk mode.
All PCIe SSD adapters may be purchased individually, not as a bundle.

The UltraBlock PCIe conveniently bridges from a write-blocked native storage interface (PCIe) to a hot-swappable interface on a host computer (USB 3.0).
LCD AND LEDS
The UltraBlock PCIe includes a backlit character LCD to display useful information about the bridge and connected PCIe media. In addition, six LEDs provide status on power, PCIe media detection, host connection, write-block status, and activity.
The UltraBlock PCIe images PCIe SSD media at blazing speeds. Imaging performance up to 330MB/sec (~19 GB/min) were observed.
The 4-position DIP switch configures user-selectable options. Default setting is switch one “OFF” (write-blocked). Toggle switch one to “ON” for read/write operation. The switch block is accessible by removing knock-out panel on bottom of the UltraBlock.
|PC Interface||USB (2.0/3.0)|
|Drive Interfaces||Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe)|
|Operational Modes||Write Block and Read/Write|
