Anritsu Intros Bluetooth Test Set
Anritsu Company introduced today the MT8852A Bluetooth* Test Set, an instrument that combines full audio test capability per the Bluetooth audio specification with the ability to perform radio layer measurements according to the Bluetooth RF test specification.
The MT8852A is also the only test instrument, according to the Richardson, Texas-based company, that supports all three codec interfaces up to three Synchronous Connection Oriented (SCO) channels, for verifying the performance of Bluetooth chipsets, modules, and consumer products at the development and production stages. It supports the CVSD, m-Law, and A-Law codec interfaces, to analyze Bluetooth devices offering audio paths, including headsets, audio gateways, car consoles, and standard telephony products. Among the tests that can be performed with the MT8852A are correct establishment of the audio channel, frequency response, and audio distortion. The MT8852A also supports HV1, HV2, and HV3 SCO audio packets for full audio test functionality.
The MT8852A provides a built-in 1 kHz tone generator that can rapidly approve the audio path. A remote loopback facility allows the Test Set to loopback audio packets from equipment under test (EUT) for EUT full path testing without adding any additional distortion within the MT8852A itself. The MT8852A’s EUT control port allows the EUT to have its audio status initialized by the Test Set.
The Test Set can analyze RF power, frequency, modulation, and receiver sensitivity (BER/FER) in accordance with RF Test Specification V0.91. In addition to conducting standard measurements according to Bluetooth specification, the MT8850A can be configured to run custom test scripts.
Priced at $19,890, the MT8852A is available for delivery in 3 to 4 weeks. For more information, visit www.us.anritsu.com
