As a member of SATA-IO, you are also invited to test your products at the Plugfest and Interop Workshop. If you have ready-for-market products that you'd like tested for certification, register your products for the Interop Workshop. If your products are in the design phase, or nearing launch, consider testing your products at the Plugfest, which gives you the chance to connect with multiple vendors in one location to quickly and easily assess the health of your product through interoperability testing. You can register for either of these events here.

Interested in demonstrating your products at the member brunch, or sponsoring our testing events? Show your industry leadership by becoming a sponsor today!
