product pic

Targeted at production testing of Bluetooth chipsets and modules, as well as consumer products utilizing Bluetooth radios, the MT8850A Bluetooth Test Set can perform measurements in accordance with RF test specification V0.09 and can use the Bluetooth protocol stack for full implementation of test-mode signaling. Compact in size, the Bluetooth Test Set can analyze RF power, frequency, modulation and receiver sensitivity (BER/FER). In addition to conducting standard measurements according to the Bluetooth specification, the MT8850A can be configured to run custom test scripts. It provides full user control of a variety of test parameters, including test frequency, frequency hopping on or off, and the number of measured bits/packets looped back in a test.All measurements can be pre-programmed, so they can be conducted with a single keystroke for easy operation on the benchtop. Both GPIB and RS-232 interfaces are standard. The company has also developed BlueSuite support software for advanced design of Bluetooth radios. With the software, burst power profiles, modulation eye diagrams, and graphs of all 79 frequenciesÕ output power can be viewed on a PC. The MT8850A occupies just half a rack and weighs 3.5 kg. Pricing is under $20,000.
