New Software Packages Expand Anritsu’s Bluetooth Test Portfolio; Create Solution that Lowers Production Test Costs on Smartphones, IoT Devices and Other Bluetooth Products
Richardson, TX – April 6, 2017 – Anritsu Company introduces software packages for its Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A that support the most recent 2 Mbps Low Energy PHY (2LE) and Bluetooth Long Range (BLR) functionality in the Bluetooth 5 Core Specification. With the software installed, the MT8870A provides manufacturing engineers with an efficient solution to verify smartphones, IoT devices and other products designed with Bluetooth technology to lower test costs and improve time-to-market.
The Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A, with the new software installed, can conduct all RF 2LE and BLR tests required by the Bluetooth 5 specification. The MT8870A creates a fast and simple test environment to measure Basic Rate, Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), Bluetooth 2LE, Bluetooth Audio power, frequency, modulation accuracy, and Rx sensitivity parameters necessary to ensure products are compliant.
Anritsu’s leadership position in Bluetooth test is reinforced with the introduction of the software packages and follows the announcement of upgrades to Anritsu’s Bluetooth Test Set MT8852A that also support evaluation of Bluetooth 5 devices. Anritsu has been a key member of Bluetooth SIG since 1999, participating in formalizing new test specifications and developing measuring solutions for each evolving Bluetooth version.
The Universal Test Set MT8870A is a multiplatform solution for testing various communications methods, including cellular, connectivity, GPS, and FM, on production lines. Up to four high-performance test units can be installed in one main frame and each unit can measure test parameters independently in parallel, offering an effective method for improving production-line efficiency. The MT8870A has excellent expandability for future upgrades to support the latest standards beyond the present Bluetooth 5 specification.
