RTX2254 - Bluetooth Low Energy RF tester

Supports Bluetooth 4.0-5.1 and provides a cost-effective way of monitoring quality and performance of BLE devices by allowing users to test key RF parameters on both the PCBA and final assembly level. RF measurement performed in Direct Test Mode or Advertising mode.

 

SYSTEM COMPONENTS
The RTX2254 consists of a dedicated RF analyzer and
generator and a versatile software package for test of
Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) RF performance.


FEATURES

  • Supports Bluetooth versions 4.0-5.1
  • Designed for high-speed, cost-effective testing of key RF parameters
  • Full Host Control Interface (HCI) for control of the DUT in Direct Test Mode (DTM)
  • Includes RTX's own versatile driver as well as support for the various Bluetooth chipset manufacturers drivers
  • Interface to all devices through the same USB port
  • HCI interface with auto-sensing level converter
  • Can be used as standalone unit or integrated into users' ATE systems
  • Includes PC GUI for manual operation of RTX2254
  • Datalogging functionality
  • Available with single- or dual-DUT support
  • Supports all generally available BLE chipsets

KEY RF MEASUREMENT PARAMETERS

  • Transmit power
  • Carrier frequency offset
  • Packet Error Rate (PER)
  • Receiver sensitivity


GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE

The RTX2254 can be operated using the RTX
Windows-based GUI where all measurements are
easily configured, executed and shown in the main
window.

REMOTE CONTROL
The RTX2254 can be integrated into an automated test
system (ATE) and controlled via the included RTX2254
driver (DLL).


VERSATILE DRIVER

  • Supports standard HCI commands as well as vendor-specific commands
  • Can co-exist with chip vendors dedicated BLE drivers
  • Enables remote control of RTX2254 and DUT


DUT CONNECTIONS

The RTX2254 is available with 1 or 2 RF IN/OUT ports
and HCI connections on the front panel for connection
to DUT's. The HCI connections comply to the physical
layers defined for utilization of DTM (USB, UART 4 and
2 wire). RTX2254's with dual-DUT support includes an
internal switch for supporting ATE applications with dual
cavities and enhance equipment utilization and reduced
tact time.


OPTIONS
• Over-The-Air (OTA) RF test on the advertising channels
• Performance enhancement for ultra-low test
execution time


APPLICATIONS

  • Manufacturing - ideal for ATE systems for inline and combined tests of BLE products
  • Quality Assurance - manual or automatic test of manufactured BLE devices
  • R&D - provides control of BLE devices in an R&D setup as well as swift verification of RF performance on prototypes

TESTER INTERFACES

RTX2254 USER INTERFACE

The RTX2254 GUI provides easy and flexible configuration of the measurement setup for both the RTX2254 and the DUT for performing RF measurements. Users can e.g. choose the channels, parameters and number of measurements. In addition, the RTX2254 provides the user utilization of the embedded RF analyzer and signal generator as individual instruments, which can be very useful for e.g. R&D. Furthermore, the GUI includes datalogging functionality for logging measurement data into a local .txt file for later analysis.

 

TWO TEST MODES AVAILABLE

(DTM) DIRECT TEST MODE
BT SIG-defined test mode which allows for direct control
of the DUT by utilizing the embedded HCI interface of
the RTX2254. DTM requires electrical access to the HCI
interface in the DUT which is typically accessible on
the PCBA level. RF can be measured either radiated or
conducted.
 ADVERTISING MODE
Over-The-Air (OTA) test utilizing the BT SIG-defined
advertising mode in the DUT for measurement of RF
parameters on the advertising channels. Advertising
mode does not require electrical access to the HCI interface
in the DUT which is very useful for testing fully-assembled
devices where the HCI interface is not exposed.
