Interlab Test Solution Bluetooth RF fully validated for AoA/AoD – Direction Finding

We are pleased to announce that the Interlab Test Solution Bluetooth RF is now fully validated for AoA/AoD Direction Finding and listed in the summer 2021 Test Case Reference List (TCRL) by the Bluetooth SIG.
The Bluetooth low energy test package extension for Direction finding in accordance to the Bluetooth Specification Part: RFPHY, version 5.3 is now available.

A Bluetooth low-energy device supporting Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD) plays a central role for Direction Finding capabilities and will become an important feature for Bluetooth enabled products.
To qualify the new feature, the Bluetooth SIG has introduced a bundle of requirements for qualification.

The corresponding Bluetooth SIG qualification will become mandatory starting from October 2021.
The new TCRL will be published mid of July 2021.

The Interlab Test Solution Bluetooth RF meets all qualification requirements for Bluetooth RF and RF-PHY for Classic, Low Energy (LE) as well as Direction Finding.
Existing customers of the Interlab Test Solution Bluetooth RF can now upgrade their test platform to operate Direction Finding testing.
There is also an option just to purchase the Direction Finding Test Case package.

We continue our development in creating customer values for Bluetooth testing by our active participation to the Bluetooth SIG standardization.
Having a reliable, high quality and flexible test platform, an intensive contribution to Bluetooth SIG and deep cooperation with leading Bluetooth product provides is the key to our success for future developments.
