Tableau Forensic PCIe Bridge (T7u)

The Tableau Forensic PCIe Bridge (T7u) is the first-ever portable write-blocker that enables forensic acquisition of PCIe solid-state-drives when used with a Tableau PCIe Adapter.

Note: The T7u does not come with any accessories (cables), power supply, or PCIe adapters when purchased as a stand-alone item, and therefore you will need your own power supply, cables and PCIe adapters to use the device. For this reason, the T7u is also available in several kit forms, with details shown below.

Features 

  • Suitable for both the field and lab
  • Imaging speeds up to 330 MB/second
  • USB 3.0 host computer connection
  • Integrated, backlit LCD presents useful bridge and PCIe device information
  • Six LEDs provide status on power, host connection, PCIe media detection, write-block status, and activity
  • Read/write mode capability via internal DIP switch
  • Free Tableau firmware updates
