Anritsu Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B Supports Bluetooth 5 for IoT Device Bluetooth RF Tests


Bluetooth 5 adds higher data rate and longer range modes of operation to the existing BLE specification.


Anritsu Corporation will launch a new RF measurement option for its Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B supporting the latest Bluetooth 5 specification.

Bluetooth 5 adds higher data rate and longer range modes of operation to the existing Bluetooth Low Energy specification. 2 Mbps operation (2LE) doubles the data rate. Long range operation (BLR) employs a new coded transmission specification employing forward error correction to improve reliability. From February 2017 MT8852B will support RF testing of both of these new features.
