The Rohde & Schwarz CMW500 wideband radio communication tester is the only instrument to support all 38 RF signaling tests specified by the Bluetooth SIG together with other cellular technologies such as LTE, LTE-A, WCDMA, GSM, CDMA2000 as well as non-cellular technologies such as WLAN and GNSS. It will be demonstrated at Bluetooth World 2015 in Santa Clara, California (April 14-15).
It means Rohde & Schwarz can offer a compact solution for prequalification tests for Bluetooth Basic Rate, Enhanced Data Rate as well as Bluetooth Low Energy. The solution covers the Bluetooth core specification for versions 1.2, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0+HS, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2. The easy-to-use CMWrun sequencer software tool makes it possible to automate the 38 RF test cases and generate clear and comprehensible test reports.
Developers can use the CMW500 to perform extensive tests on their Bluetooth products and optimize their design before calling on a Bluetooth Qualification Test Facility (BQTF). Part of the qualification tests includes complex spectrum measurements across 79 channels. The extremely fast R&S CMW500 gives developers initial test results in less than a second, in turn simplifying optimization tasks.
In addition, the solution can carry out general integration and coexistence tests, as well as functional tests and quick tests during production. With intelligent signal processing enabling multiple simultaneous measurements, the tester can offer a complex transceiver measurement covering power, modulation and spectrum as well as RF loopback in just a few seconds.
The R&S CMW270 wireless connectivity tester offers a cost-efficient solution for users performing pure non-cellular integration tasks involving Bluetooth and WLAN. The Bluetooth SIG has qualified both the R&S CMW500 and the R&S CMW270 for RF measurements.
