InterLab BLUETOOTH RF Test Solution first conformance RF test platform with validated test coverage for Enhanced Power Control
7 layers is very proud to announce that the InterLab (R) Bluetooth (R) RF Test Solution is the first conformance RF test platform to offer validated test coverage for Enhanced Power Control.
This is a new feature which has been added to the Bluetooth (R) technology in the Bluetooth (R) 3.0 + HS specification version.
The Bluetooth (R) SIG has approved the validation report, for the addition of the Enhanced Power
Control test case (TRM/CA/14/C in test spec RF.TS/3.0.H.1) to the InterLab Bluetooth (R) RF Test Solution, today. The validation report was submitted by 7 layers on 1st October, 2009 for review by the BTI (Bluetooth (R) Test and Interoperability) work group and the Bluetooth (R) SIG, who raised no issues during their review. The release of this test case completes the RF testing coverage for Bluetooth (R) 3.0 + HS, since there are currently no plans to incorporate additional RF test requirements for the high-speed addition of 802.11 technology.
The upgraded validation status of the InterLab Bluetooth (R) RF Test Solution will be made public with the next maintenance release of the Test Case Reference List (TCRL) for Bluetooth (R) 3.0 + HS.
However the status update is effective immediately.
Achieving the official validation approval – as the first Test Solution provider in the industry – underlines 7 layers’ commitment to provide up-to-date RF testing capabilities to its customer base of manufacturers, BRTFs and BQTFs. This way 7 layers ensures that the InterLab Bluetooth (R) RF Test Solution keeps pace with the continuous evolution of the Bluetooth (R) wireless technology. The newly validated test case is made available free of charge to all customers of the InterLab Bluetooth (R) RF Test Solution who have licensed the Enhanced Data Rate test case package.
