Agilent Technologies Inc. announced its Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) test solution on the N4010A wireless
connectivity test set was verified by Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) for use with
TI’s integrated circuits in Bluetooth
Smart and Smart-Ready devices. The Bluetooth low-energy Tx/Rx test capability on N4010A gives
manufacturers and design houses reliable and efficient test solutions for
single-mode and dual-mode devices.
technology enables long operational life with minimal power consumption for
applications such as mobile communications, sports and fitness, health care,
security, and home entertainment.
N4010A supports TI’s system-on-chips and combo-connectivity solutions. TI
delivers flexible BLE solutions for BluetoothSmart (single-mode) sensor applications and Bluetooth Smart-Ready (dual-mode) mobile applications—including
the WiLink family. TI’s WL128x solution, which is part of the WiLink 7.0
family, is the industry’s first to integrate mobile Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, BLE, ANT+, and FM
transmit/receive connectivity technologies on a true single chip.
wireless connectivity test set delivers a versatile multiformat test solution
for WLAN a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 1.1
and 1.2, Bluetooth 2.1+Enhanced
Data Rate, Bluetooth Audio,
BLE, and ZigBee applications. It covers the product lifecycle from development
and integration through to production.
BLE Tx/Rx option 109 is compliant with the latest Bluetooth 4.0 core specification for
RF test requirements. The solution simplifies the process of creating test
cases and increases manufacturing throughput with fast, accurate measurements.
