Celerity Digital Broadband Test, a division of l-3 Communications, announced the introduction of the CS20310B Bluetooth® RF Test Set. This new test instrument records, analyzes and generates Bluetooth signals over full 83.5 MHz bandwidth, ensuring RF interoperability. It is also capable of digitally generating up to 12,800 hops at 1,600 hops/sec in the 2.4 GHz band with full control of all RF parameters for receiver RF compliance testing. A broadband downconverter and high performance 300 MS/s ADC captures all of the hops in time, preserving complete time, frequency modulation, and transient information of the Bluetooth signals. High speed digital analysis routines process the stored data, providing detailed RF parameter data essential for fully characterizing Bluetooth RF transmitters. In addition, each hop can be demodulated to provide the baseband data, allowing protocol analysis using third party protocol analyzer software.
The CS20310B utilizes a modular, open platform that allows easy upgrades for additional features such as deeper memory, additional recorder-generator channels, and wider bandwidths. The Windows NT environment integrates easily with popular simulation, analysis, and desktop publishing tools.
