The Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B is the market-leading RF measuring instrument for design proving and production test of a wide range of products that integrate Bluetooth® technology. It supports Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) measurement of transmit power, frequency, modulation, and receiver sensitivity required by Bluetooth RF test specifications. In production, a single key press initiates a measurement script that tests a device in less than 10 seconds.
Measurements performed as defined in the Bluetooth RF Test Specification
- Measurements performed in Bluetooth test mode - Loopback or Tx mode supported
- Initialization and control of test devices through UART, USB or USB-Adaptor HCI control interface
- Built-in support for Bluetooth low energy 2-Wire control interface
- BR/EDR/Bluetooth low energy dirty transmitter for receiver sensitivity test cases
Audio testing capability
The MT8852B supports all three codec air interfaces (µ-Law, A-Law and CVSD) on up to three SCO audio channels. It offers comprehensive testing facilities integrated within a Bluetooth wireless technology test set. Rear-panel jack-plug connectors provide analog inputs and outputs for all three audio channels.
2 Mbps Low Energy PHY (2LE) and Bluetooth Long Range (BLR) tests
Adding this option supports the 2 Mbps Low Energy PHY (2LE) tests expected to improve dramatically improve battery life and Bluetooth Long Range (BLR) tests supporting communications beyond a range of 500 m that are both included in the new Bluetooth Core 5 specifications.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping inspection function
The Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) option facilitates analysis of interference from, and co-existence with, interfering signals such as WLAN. This option provides graphical displays of FER and masked channels when interfering signals are introduced, allowing optimization of hardware designs.
