Testability-Check Test Case Package
for InterLab Test Solution Bluetooth RF
7layers has created a new test case package to speed up test projects on its InterLab Test Solution Bluetooth RF.
The Testability-Check test case package can be used on a desktop work station, e.g. the InterLab Test Solution Controller, in combination with an R&S®CBT or R&S®CMW. The Testability-Check test case package verifies whether a Bluetooth(R) device is “testable” in regard to the required test automation and signaling. The software framework used for this test case package is identical to the one used for our full conformance tester, the InterLab Test Solution Bluetooth RF.
Users of the Bluetooth RF Testability-Check
- Bluetooth device manufacturers
Bluetooth device manufacturer who have the need to better prepare their test project for a BQTF will benefit greatly from the new “Testability Check” test case package, especially if they can combine it with their own R&S®CBT or R&S®CMW.
The Testability-Check test case package allows the user to verify the behavior of a Bluetooth device in terms of test automation, signaling, timing and continuous operation in the same software environment used by a BQTF, but in the comfort of their own office or lab. This helps to identify and resolve common issues ahead of time which often cause significant delays and costs in Bluetooth RF Qualification testing.
- Bluetooth Qualification Test Facilities
Bluetooth Qualification Test Facilities can apply the same approach. In their case the “Testability Check” can be executed in a setup separate to the Bluetooth RF Conformance Tester to identify if a Bluetooth device is ready for official qualification testing. This increases the number of projects which can be completed within a week, frees up time from expensive lab resources and reduces qualification test times.
Bluetooth Qualification Test Facilities (BQTFs) using the InterLab® Test Solution Bluetooth® RF benefit from the Testability-Check test case package by means of a desktop work station with minimal hardware – the Interlab Test Solution controller, during the device preparation stage. After device preparation, the automation and RF signaling settings can be seamlessly transferred o the InterLab conformance test system. By using a second, less expensive and easier to handle workstation for troubleshooting, you can run qualification testing almost continuously on the conformance test system without having to go back and make changes to the device setup. This will make laboratories more cost efficient and increase the amount of qualification projects they can take on.
