Teledyne LeCroy has developed a Bluetooth tester for verifying conformance of Bluetooth low-energy link layer and HCI implementations.

Teledyne’s Bluetooth conformance tester is used in conjunction with the Sodera Wideband Bluetooth protocol analyser to test an implementation under test’s (IUT) conformance with the Bluetooth low energy specification. IUTs are tested using conformance test cases published by the Bluetooth SIG.

For simplicity, test plans created using the Bluetooth SIG test plan generator can be directly imported into the Teledyne’s Bluetooth conformance tester. The frontline’s protocol analysis software runs at the same time as the conformance tester and provides comprehensive packet analysis. In addition to errors, warnings and events, by adding the Bluetooth Protocol Expert System software module, specific references to the Bluetooth specification and even solutions are made available while running the Bluetooth conformance tester.
