Design and Test Solutions for W-CDMA/EDGE/Bluetooth in the Agilent
89400 Series New options enhance the 89400 series vector signal
analyzers to keep up with evolving standards such as EDGE and
W-CDMA. These enhancements build on the 89400 series and its
existing measurements for GSM and BTS transmitter tests of W-CDMA
experimental systems. Advanced digital RF transmission techniques
are also being applied to short range, low power applications. The
Bluetooth standard combines digital modulation, bursting and a
frequency hopping spread-spectrum technique.

||Written in Java and completely cross-platform compatible, the Da
Vinci Communications' Leonardo
Synergy Solution combines the Rohde & Schwarz PTW60 protocol
tester and Da Vinci Communications' Leonardo Editor Pro into one
integrated development environment. Leonardo Synergy Solution /
PTW60 can control the operation of the TTCN compiler/syntax and
semantic checker on the PTW60 protocol tester. The plug-in's
debugging mode enables developers to simply feed error messages from
the TTCN compiler back to the Leonardo editor for further editing.
Highly flexible, it also allows the management and version control
of abstract test suites on the PTW60.

Interoperability Between Bluetooth Devices With Bluetooth
deployments heating up, interoperability should be at the forefront of
an engineer's mind. When running interoperability tests, there are a
few key parameters that design engineers should be examining. Issues
such as service discovery, PPP connection, and data throughput must be
addressed. Here's a guide that will help you sort through some of
these key interoperability tests...

and qualifying a Bluetooth design (PDF) Bluetooth qualification
allows OEMs to have a product listing on the Bluetooth Website and
gives them the ability to use the Bluetooth brand on the product.
Qualification helps different manufacturers ensure that their products
will operate with other Bluetooth products and comply with the
Bluetooth specification. The qualification process is divided into
four parts: radio link, protocol, profile and information
