OpenText - Tableau
OpenText Tableau manufactures several families of "forensic bridges" (hardware write blockers). Forensic bridges have two key functions:
  • Adapt the storage device's native interface (e.g., IDE, SATA, SCSI, or USB), to a more convenient computer interface such as FireWire or USB.
  • Prevent modification to the subject storage device.

Tableau also manufactures a full line of power supply and cable accessories to complement the forensic bridges.

TK35u Forensic IDE/SATA Bridge Kit

The Tableau T35u USB 3.0 Forensic IDE/SATA Bridge supports write-blocked, forensic acquisitions of both SATA and IDE storage devices through a fast USB 3.0 host connection. The T35u offers forensic examiners the ease of use, reliability, and imaging speed necessary to image today's larger and faster hard-disk drives - in both lab or field environments.

The T35u is a bare bridge, while the TK35u is the Bridge Kit which includes a power supply, cables and adapters.

With the advent of USB 3.0, the clutter of multiple host connections has been replaced by a single Super Speed USB 3.0 port. With the T35u, you'll have the robust write-blocking technology that is the standard by which all other SATA and IDE write blockers are measured, now powered by the performance potential of USB 3.0. Still just as easy to use as ever; simply connect, power up, and image.

For added security, T35u introduces the new 'Firmware Update' button, which places the T35u in a special mode for updating its firmware through the Tableau Firmware Update (TFU) utility. TFU has been rewritten for updates via USB, making it easier than ever to maintain the correct version of firmware on new Tableau products.
