Test instrumentation must constantly validate itself against changing standards. Such validation is crucial to developers, who want to be confident in their products before submitting them for qualification testing. For developers in the Bluetooth arena, Anritsu Company (www.us.anritsu.com) now offers that peace of mind. Its Bluetooth integrated Test Set solutions are officially validated by the Bluetooth Qualification Review Board (BQRB) for radio-layer measurements.
Specifically, the MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth test sets have "Test System Validation" status. During qualification, chip-set developers, module manufacturers, and consumer product developers should now be able to test their products with confidence. The test sets also can be used for product assessment prior to submission to a Bluetooth Qualification Test Facility (BQTF).
In addition to receiving the validation status from BQRB, Anritsu has a long-standing partnership with Centro de Tecnologia de las Comunicaciones, S.A. (CETECOM Spain), a leading BQTF. As part of this partnership, the two companies developed the ME7865A Pre-Qualification Test System.
The MT8850A/MT8852A test sets support eight of the 15 test cases in the Bluetooth RF-test specification. With one-button capability, the MT8850A/MT8852A can test the RF performance of Bluetooth modules in less than 5 sec.
