T7u PCIe Forensic Bridge



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


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

NOTE: The Tableau Forensic PCIe Bridge must be used in combination with one of the Tableau PCIe Adapters.
