The EBQ is slated to be an industry standard compliance tester and is based on requirements provided by the Bluetooth® Special Interest Group (SIG).
The EBQ is designed to provide comprehensive, automated coverage of protocol and RF qualification tests across the lower layers of the Bluetooth® radio stack. The compact design includes a flexible test port that supports UART, USB, and SDIO interfaces. A custom-designed digital radio provides current-generation Bluetooth® packet transmission and reception capabilities, and multiple onboard processors are included to provide stack management, test case control, and programming interfaces. The EBQ is smartly designed for extensibility, in that as Bluetooth® specifications evolve, the EBQ can be reprogrammed to keep pace, thus delivering a future-proof solution. The control software is designed for development workflows as well as qualification, including detailed logging and sniffer automation.
