Bluetooth Test Instrument
Anritsu Company introduces the MT8852B Bluetooth test set, a test instrument with both Bluetooth Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) testing capability. The ability to conduct EDR and AFH tests makes the test set a good verification tool for chipset developers, module manufacturers and developers of a range of consumer products that have Bluetooth interfaces. The MT8852B performs the new radio layer measurements defined in the Bluetooth Revision 2.0 EDR standard, along with basic rate measurements, from a single "RUN" button key-press. To verify reliable connections with other Bluetooth products, the MT8852B performs transmitter Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) and receiver sensitivity tests at the higher data rates associated with EDR. The MT8852B has a typical test time of less than ten seconds for new EDR products.
