Chapter 2. Product Overview
About Bluetooth
Bluetooth wireless technology will simplify connections between everyday appliances such
as mobile phones, PCs and PDAs. Bluetooth will not be confined to the office - home
applications will include portable music players, digital cameras, video recorders and
children’s toys. In future, Bluetooth technology will be found in the automotive, avionics
and industrial controls markets. Bluetooth technology will provide individuals with a
personal networking environment that can be found in public places, such as shopping
centers, sports stadiums and airports.
The success of the Bluetooth standard will depend on users of the technology enjoying
products that are reliable with high-quality connections that can be used “out of the box” to
provide immediate connectivity.
The combination of leading-edge RF and protocol technologies, coupled with the
requirement to get implementation costs down to a few dollars, puts particularly high
demands on the test department to develop test procedures that are comprehensive in
terms of both RF and functionality. These tests need to be fast and initiated through a
simple user interface. The integration of a module into an OEM product will not necessarily
produce predictable results, and the performance of every item will be different, this
makes it essential to test to a known set of parameters using an instrument traceable to
National Standards.
Anritsu knows the importance of test for RF products. We know that in an OEM production
environment, the key requirement will be to validate performance in the shortest time.
Production engineers will need to decide on a subset of the Bluetooth RF test specification
that is appropriate to their product’s requirements.
Working with RF, especially RF at over 2 GHz is not easy, but with Anritsu as your test
partner you can be certain of having the most up-to-date and relevant testing capabilities
for your Bluetooth products.
The MT8850A/MT8852A
Anritsu have developed the MT8850A/MT8852A, a Bluetooth Test Set to test Bluetooth
modules and Bluetooth products - quickly and at low cost.
Anritsu has a century of experience in RF technology, and today has a reputation for
developing solutions to test the newest wired and wireless technologies. Our test and
measurement products are used by customers in over 100 countries worldwide, and our
experience in the measurement business is second-to-none.

About Bluetooth
MT8850A / MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set
Product Overview
MT8850A/MT8852A Features
•
•
Three test modes
•
Standard mode in which the MT8850A/MT8852A uses full Test Mode signalling
and all the defined test controls to test the EUT in the fastest and most efficient
way possible.
•
Single payload mode in which Test Mode signalling is performed in a very
restricted manner. The customer can define the packet length, packet payload,
select loopback or TX mode and hopping on or off.
•
Null packet mode enables measurements to be made on EUTs that do not have
test mode support, by performing a limited subset of measurements on packets
without payloads. None of these measurements are performed in accordance
with the Bluetooth test specifications.
Fast
Keep your production lines flowing with the rapid “Quick Test” measurement script.
Production test scripts can run in as little as 10 seconds, measuring power, frequency,
modulation and receiver sensitivity (BER).
•
One touch testing
Once the MT8850A/MT8852A has been configured, each device is tested with a
single keystroke. Press Run to initiate a link, activate Test Mode, perform the
measurements and report the results.
•
Authoritative
Under standard operation, tests are made exactly as defined in the Bluetooth RF Test
Specification. All measurements are traceable to National Standards so that you can
be totally confident in both your production testing and design proving.
•
Reference Bluetooth transceiver
A custom design transceiver offers <1 kHz frequency accuracy at the start of any
packet and full compliance with the requirements for the “Dirty Transmitter” for true
receiver sensitivity measurements. In addition to the standard dirty transmitter table,
you can define customized stress conditions with user settable values of Carrier
Frequency Offset, Modulation Index, Symbol Timing Error and simulated carrier
frequency drift.
•
Remote control
Both GPIB and RS232 interfaces are offered as standard. Creating test programs has
been simplified by the ability to send single commands for initiating a test and
returning all results in a single string.
•
Small size and weight
MT8850A/MT8852A takes up minimal space in your test system thanks to its half rack
size and low weight. Where Bluetooth interfaces are being introduced into existing
products, the disturbance to the test system is minimized.

Product Overview
•
MT8850A / MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set
Editing tests
Define your own test scripts to customize the test measurements to your specific
requirements. Each test can be enabled or disabled and within any test, parameters
such as hopping can be enabled or disabled, the number of measured packets
defined, and the specific frequencies of testing set up.
•
Making a link
The BT address can be acquired by entering it manually at the keyboard, by
performing an inquiry, or by means of an RS232 or USB HCI link. Once the EUT BT
address is known a Bluetooth link is established using Paging.
•
Field upgradeable
The Bluetooth protocol stack is held in FPGA so that future versions of the core
Bluetooth specification can be installed locally. The instruments main program is held
in flash memory and so product enhancements are also field downloadable.
•
Design proving
Because measurements are made in accordance with the RF Test Specification,
MT8850A/MT8852A is the ideal instrument for pre-conformance testing and design
proving. Gain confidence in your product before submitting to a Bluetooth Qualification
Test Facility for approval. To perform tests such as TX output spectrum and spurious
emissions not supported by the MT8852A, use the Anritsu ME7865A Bluetooth Pre
Qualification Test System that addresses all 16 test cases defined in the RF test
specification.
•
Audio testing (MT8852A only)
The MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set can be used to perform audio measurements by
establishing a Synchronous Connection Oriented (SCO) link between the MT8852A
and the EUT.
BlueSuite Analysis Software
A BlueSuite software package gives PC control of the MT8850A/MT8852A for advanced
design proving measurements on Bluetooth radios. Use BlueSuite to view burst power
profiles, modulation eye diagrams, display graphs of the output power of the 79
frequencies and many other advanced diagnostic tools.

Introduction
This chapter provides information for the initial inspection and preparation for use of the
MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set. Shipping and storage information is also
included.
Initial Inspection
Inspect the shipping container for damage. If the container or cushioning material is
damaged, retain until the contents of the shipment have been checked against the packing
list and the instrument has been checked for mechanical and electrical operation.
If the Test Set is damaged mechanically, notify your local sales representative or Anritsu
Customer Service Center. If either the shipping container is damaged or the cushioning
material shows signs of stress, notify the carrier as well as Anritsu. Retain the shipping
materials for the carrier's inspection.
Power Requirements
The MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set is operated from AC line power. The
MT8850A/MT8852A is intended as an Installation (Overvoltage) Category II, Insulation
Category I device.
At power-on, the instrument will perform a brief power-on self test (POST). If a POST error
occurs, information and available options will be displayed on the screen. If the POST is
successful, the instrument will then go to the top-level script or single test screen that was
active when it was powered down.
AC Line Power
The MT8850A/MT8852A can operate on AC input power of 85-264V, 47-63 Hz, 150 VA
maximum. The Test Set automatically configures itself for the voltage applied. An internal
fuse protects the AC line input.
Fuse Protection
The MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set is protected on the AC input by an internally
mounted fuse. Only qualified service personnel should change this fuse. Replace only with
a fuse of the same type and rating, which is 5 mm x 20 mm, 250V, 2.5A T (T= time lag or
slo-blo).
Grounding
The MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set must be properly grounded. Failure to ground
the instrument could be hazardous to operating personnel. The instrument is supplied with
a three-wire power cord.
The instrument is properly grounded when the plug is correctly installed in a grounded
receptacle. A grounding terminal is provided on the instrument rear panel.

Environmental Requirements
The MT8850A/MT8852A is designed to operate within the temperature range of 5 to 40° C
(41 to 104° F) with a maximum humidity of 90% at 40° C (104° F), non-condensing. Full
accuracy is specified at 5 to 35° C (23 to 95° F).
Although not recommended, operation in temperatures to –20°C
(–4° F) is possible. At these temperatures, however, the liquid crystal display may exhibit
excessively slow response.
CAUTION
The instrument is cooled by a fan at the rear, which circulates air
round the instrument through the vent holes in the base. The fan and
the vent holes should not be blocked.
Rack Mounting
The MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set can be ordered with rack mounting hardware
that allows the instrument to be mounted into a standard 19-inch equipment rack. There
are two rack mount option kits available:
The MT8850A-01 Rack Mount option allows the installation of a single
MT8850A/MT8852A in either the left or right side rack position.
The MT8850A-03 Rack Mount option allows side-by-side mounting of two
MT8850A/MT8852A Test Sets.
Single Unit Rack Mounting (Option 01)
This section describes the assembly procedure for fitting a single MT8850A/MT8852A
Bluetooth Test Set into an instrument rack. The MT8850A/MT8852A universal top and

Storage and Shipment
The following paragraphs describe preparing the MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set
for storage and shipment.
Preparation For Storage
Preparing the MT8850A/MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set for storage consists of cleaning the
instrument and packing it with moisture-absorbing desiccant crystals.
Environmental Requirements
Store the instrument in a temperature controlled environment that is maintained
between -40 and +70º C (-40 to ±156º F), with a maximum humidity of 90% at 40º C (104º
F), non-condensing.
Preparation for Shipment
To provide maximum protection against damage in transit, the MT8850A/MT8852A
Bluetooth Test Set should be repackaged in the original shipping container. If this
container is no longer available and the MT8850A/MT8852A is being returned to Anritsu
for repair, advise Anritsu Customer Service Center; they will send a new shipping
container free of charge. In the event neither of these two options is possible, follow the
packaging instructions below.
Use a
Suitable
Container
Obtain a corrugated cardboard carton with a 125 Kg (275-pound) test
strength. This carton should have inside dimensions of no less than 150
mm (6 in) larger than the instrument dimensions to allow for cushioning.
Protect the
Instrument
Wrap the instrument to protect the finish.
Cushion the
Instrument
Cushion the instrument on all sides by tightly packing dunnage or
urethane foam between the carton and the instrument. Provide at least
75 mm (3 in) of dunnage on all sides.
Seal the
Container
Seal the carton using either shipping tape or an industrial stapler.
Address the
container
If the instrument is being returned to Anritsu for service, mark the
address of the appropriate Anritsu service center, the Return Materials
Authorization (RMA) number, and your return address on the carton in a
prominent location.

Running a Single Test
MT8850A / MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set
Getting Started
Running a Script in Standard Mode
In Standard mode, the MT8850A/MT8852A uses full Test Mode signalling and all the
defined test controls to test the EUT in the fastest and most efficient way possible.
Standard mode is the default mode setting, although it should be noted that for devices
with only a limited implementation of test mode functionality, operation in standard mode
may result in the EUT dropping the link or failing to respond to commands from the
MT8850A/MT8852A. In this case, select single payload or null packet operation.
Running a Script in Single Payload Mode
Single payload mode uses Test Mode signalling but in a very restricted manner. This is
ideal when the test device does not yet have a full Test Mode implemented, and the
repetitive signalling in standard mode may cause it to fail or drop the link. When the user
selects to run a script in single payload mode, a message to this effect displays on the
uppermost line of every page to remind the user that a mode other than standard is

In this mode, the user can define the packet length, packet payload, and set loopback or

Running a Script in Null Packets Mode
This mode is used to enable indicative measurements to be made on EUTs that have no
test mode support. In this mode the MT8850A/MT8852A does not use Test Mode
signalling at all, and makes only a limited subset of measurements on packets without
payloads. Measurements are not performed in accordance with the Bluetooth test
specification. When the user selects to run a script in null packets mode, a message to
this effect displays on the uppermost line of every page to remind the user that a mode
other than standard is currently selected.
The MT8850A/MT8852A can be made to link to an EUT and maintain the link by sending
POLL packets. In response to a POLL packet, the EUT will return a NULL packet. A NULL
Packet has no payload but can be used for power, initial frequency, drift, and modulation
measurements without having to activate test mode.

MT8850A / MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set
Setting Up Authentication
Authentication is the process of configuring a Bluetooth unit to connect only to one
specified device. A headset, for example, can be configured to connect only to a specific
mobile phone, and in this case, verification processing is used to ensure that the correct
connections have been established. The MT8850A/MT8852A can be configured to use
authentication during the establishment of a connection.
Note:
The MT8850A/MT8852A does not use authentication by default.
The process of authentication involves creating a common key, referred to as the link key,
between the master and slave devices. Security could be compromised if this link key
were sent between devices, so instead, it is generated from a random number and a
Personal Identification Number (PIN) which can be entered into the MT8850A/MT8852A.
If authentication is required but the Bluetooth devices do not have a common link key, the
authentication procedure is completed using the PIN input, and a link key is then created
and stored during the authentication procedure. The link key stored in the Bluetooth
device can then be used during any future connection. Follow the procedure below to
configure the MT8850A/MT8852A to use authentication.

to try to communicate with an EUT even when it receives no response. If the
MT8850A/MT8852A receives no response from the EUT after the set number of seconds,
it will stop transmitting and display the message, "Connection lost, timed out" at the top of
the screen. The default setting is 10 seconds and can be set between 1 and 40 seconds.
Setting Up the IF Bandwidth Filter
The user can select between two MT8850A/MT8852A receiver bandwidth filters.
Selectable filters, as defined by their 3dB bandwidth, are 2MHz and 1.3MHz. Both filters
have a flat frequency response from Fc +/- 550kHz. Both filters meet the requirements of
the Bluetooth RF test specification including errata 227. The narrower, 1.3MHz filter
should be selected when wanting to reject all EUT signals outside of a single Bluetooth
channel.

Test control delay
The Test Control delay value can be between 0 and 100. When the MT8850A/MT8852A
sends a Test Control command (Loopback, TX or Test Pause) the EUT may require a
period of time to respond before it has actioned the Test Control. This time will vary
between differing Bluetooth developers implementations. Test control delay causes the
MT8850A/MT8852A to pause from measuring returned packets until the EUT has had
time to respond. The number entered is the number of transmitted packets from the
MT8850A/MT8852A that are ignored before measurements are started.
Test Pause Test Control
The Test Pause test control is defined in the Bluetooth specification to improve the
efficiency of device testing. If an EUT does not support test pause, use of test pause can
de disabled in the following manner.

The two settings on the screen above that appear below test pause are set by default to
“ON” and should be left at this setting unless required as detailed below.
When the MT8850A/MT8852A connects with an EUT it is required by the specification that
the power be set to maximum. However, as it has been found that this requirement may
pose a problem for certain EUTs in development, it is now possible to set “Set EUT max
pwr on connection” to “OFF”.
In a similar manner to the setting above, it is also possible to set “Read EUT name on
connection” to “OFF”. Under normal circumstances, the user-friendly name is read when
a connection is established. However, for certain EUTs still in development, this may
result in a dropped link, and for this reason it can be set to “OFF”.

Testing in Standard Script Mode
Individual tests can be tailored to suit requirements. The setup procedures and limits are
described on the following pages:
Output Power Test (Standard Mode)
The output power test performs power measurements on the EUT transmitted packets in
one of four ways.
With “Hopping On” mode set to “Defined” the MT8850A/MT8852A measures power only
when the link hops to one of the frequencies defined on the LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH set
up screen. Although the measurements are only made at the defined frequencies, it is still
a hopping link. The number of packets measured at each frequency is set by the user in
the “Number of packets” field. This is the test method described in the Bluetooth RF Test
Specification.
With “Hopping On” mode set to “All” the MT8850A/MT8852A measures the power at every
one of the 79 frequencies in the Bluetooth channel structure. The number of packets
measured at each frequency is set by the user in the “Number of packets” field.
With “Hopping On” mode set to “Any” the MT8850A/MT8852A measures the power at the
next frequency that the link hops to after the previous power measurement has been
completed. The total number of packets measured is set by the user in the “Number of
packets” field. This is typically the shortest of the three options as there is no requirement
to measure a large number of packets at specified frequencies.
The MT8850A/MT8852A can perform the test using either loopback test controls or TX
test controls. The default form for this test is to use loopback. The following test
description is described using the default test control.
The MT8850A/MT8852A transmits a pseudo random data payload (PRBS 9) of the
longest supported type (DH5, DH3 or DH1) or the selected packet type, to the EUT. The
EUT loops back the data at its maximum output power and the MT8850A/MT8852A
measures the received power. This test is performed while hopping, and the test is
repeated until the requested number of packets has been measured on each of the
selected frequencies. The LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH frequencies relate to the default
frequencies specified in the Bluetooth RF test specification. The MT8850A/MT8852A
allows all these frequencies to be changed from their default values.

Power Control Test (Standard Mode)
The power control test performs power measurement cycles on the EUT output, if the EUT
supports power control, at each of the defined frequencies (LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH).
This measurement is always performed with hopping off. The MT8850A/MT8852A can
perform the test using either loopback test control or TX test control. The default form for
this test is to use loopback. The following test is described using the default test control.
The MT8850A/MT8852A transmits a DH1 (or the operator selected packet type) packet
with a pseudo random data payload (PRBS 9). This test is performed with hopping off.
The LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH frequency sets relate to the default frequencies specified in
the Bluetooth RF test specification. The MT8850A/MT8852A allows all the frequencies to
be changed.
A power measurement cycle sets the EUT output power to its maximum and then steps
the power down to the minimum power and then up to the maximum again one step at a
time. For each power step a number of data packets are sent to the EUT and looped back
to the MT8850A/MT8852A.
When the test is performed in TX test mode only the TX
frequency settings are used since both RX and TX frequencies
must be the same.

Initial Carrier Test (Standard Mode)
The initial carrier test performs a frequency accuracy test on a DH1 pseudo random data
packet. (PRBS 9) This test can be performed using either the loopback test control or the
TX test control. The default is to use the loopback test control. This test can be made with
either hopping on or off.
With hopping off, the MT8850A/MT8852A measures the initial carrier frequency error at
the three frequencies defined on the LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH set up screen. The
number of packets measured at each frequency is set by the user in the “Number of
packets” field. This is the test method described in the Bluetooth RF Test Specification for
an initial carrier frequency test with hopping off.
With hopping on, the MT8850A/MT8852A can make the measurement in one of two ways.
If Hopping On mode is set to “All”, the MT8850A/MT8852A will measure the initial carrier
frequency at every one of the 79 frequencies in the Bluetooth channel structure. The
number of packets measured at each frequency is set by the user in the “Number of
packets” field. This is the test method described in the Bluetooth RF Test Specification for
an initial carrier frequency test with hopping on.
If Hopping On mode is set to “Any” the MT8850A/MT8852A measures the power at the
next frequency that the link hops to after the previous initial carrier frequency
measurement has been completed. The total number of packets measured is set by the
user in the “Number of packets” field. This is typically the shortest option as there is no
requirement to measure a large number of packets at every frequency.
When the measurement is made using TX mode the MT8850A/MT8852A sets up the EUT
so that when the EUT is polled it transmits a DH1 packet with a pseudo random payload
for each of the frequencies selected (LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH). This test can be
performed with hopping off and on. The LOW, MEDIUM and HIGH frequencies relate to
the default frequencies specified in the Bluetooth RF test specification. The
MT8850A/MT8852A allows all the frequencies to be changed. When the test is performed
in TX test mode EUT transmitter and receiver frequencies must be the same.

Carrier Drift Test (Standard Mode)
The carrier drift test performs a frequency drift measurement over the length of the packet
received. The test can be carried out for each of the supported packet types with either
hopping on or hopping off. This test can be performed using either the loopback test
control or the TX test control. The default is to use the loopback test control.
In loopback mode with hopping off, the MT8850A/MT8852A sends DH1, DH3 and DH5
packets with a 10101010.... payload at each of the frequencies selected (LOW, MEDIUM
and HIGH). The EUT returns the DH1, DH3 or DH5 packet for measurement. The LOW,
MEDIUM and HIGH frequencies relate to the default frequencies specified in the Bluetooth
RF test specification. The number of packets of each length that are measured is set in
the “Number of packets” field. The MT8850A/MT8852A allows all the frequencies to be
changed. This is the test method described in the Bluetooth RF Test Specification for a
carrier frequency drift test with hopping off.
In loopback mode with hopping on, and hopping on mode set to “All” the
MT8850A/MT8852A sends DH1, DH3 and DH5 packets with a 10101010 payload. The
EUT returns the DH1, DH3 or DH5 packet for measurement. The MT8850A/MT8852A will
measure the carrier frequency drift for each packet length at every one of the 79
frequencies in the Bluetooth channel structure. The number of packets of each length that
are measured is set in the “Number of packets” field. This is the test method described in
the Bluetooth RF Test Specification for a carrier frequency drift test with hopping on.
In loopback mode with hopping on, and hopping on mode set to “Any” the
MT8850A/MT8852A sends DH1, DH3 and DH5 packets with a 10101010 payload. The
EUT returns the DH1, DH3 or DH5 packet for measurement. The MT8850A/MT8852A will
measure the carrier frequency drift at the next frequency that the link hops to after the
previous carrier frequency drift measurement has been completed. The number of packets
of each length that are measured is set in the “Number of packets” field.
In TX mode with hopping on or off the measurement process is the same as for loopback
except that the MT8850A/MT8852A does not send full DHX packets but just POLL
packets. The EUT has been configured by the MT8850A/MT8852A to respond to a POLL
with the appropriate DHX packet. The EUT must support TX mode part of the Test Mode
specification for this to work. The test time is much shorter when run using TX mode
compared with loopback, as the MT8850A/MT8852A does not have to send full packet
lengths. When the test is performed in TX test mode, EUT transmitter and receiver
frequencies must be the same. TX mode complies with the Bluetooth RF Test
Specification for a carrier frequency drift test.

control.
The MT8850A/MT8852A transmits a number of packets containing the four ones four
zeros payload (11110000), which are looped back by the EUT. Then packets with the
alternate ones and zeros (101010101) payload are transmitted and are looped back by the
EUT. These packets are the longest supported packet type as reported by the EUT during
link set up (DH1, DH3 or DH5) or the selected packet type.
This test is performed with hopping off, and the test is repeated until the number of

Carrier Drift Test (Single Payload Mode)
The carrier drift test performs a frequency drift measurement over the length of the packet
received. This test can be performed using either the loopback test control or the TX test
control. The default is to use the loopback test control.
In loopback mode with hopping off, the MT8850A/MT8852A sends a packet with a
10101010 and the EUT returns packet for measurement.
In TX mode with hopping on or off, the measurement process is the same as for loopback
except that the MT8850A/MT8852A does not send full DHX packets but just POLL
packets. The EUT has been configured by the MT8850A/MT8852A to respond to a POLL
with the appropriate DHX packet. The EUT must support TX mode part of the Test Mode
specification for this to work. The test time is much shorter when run using TX mode
compared with loopback, as the MT8850A/MT8852A does not have to send full packet
lengths. When the test is performed in TX test mode, EUT transmitter and receiver
frequencies must be the same. For this test, the TX and RX frequencies are the same. TX
mode complies with the Bluetooth RF Test Specification for a carrier frequency drift test.

Chapter 9. Audio Measurements
(MT8852A only)
The MT8852A Bluetooth Test Set can be used to perform audio measurements by
establishing a Synchronous Connection Oriented (SCO) link between the MT8852A and
the EUT. A SCO link is a full duplex link between a Bluetooth master and slave.
Note:
It should be noted that SCO is an optional feature within the Bluetooth
specification. The MT8852A can be used to establish a SCO link and transmit
HV packets to, or from, the EUT. To perform audio measurements, an audio
signal source and audio analyzer are also required (e.g., Keithley 2015).
There are four basic scenarios in which audio measurements may be made, each of which
is illustrated and explained in this chapter. The four test scenarios are:
•
Testing the EUT’s audio performance using remote loopback on the MT8852A.
•
Testing the audio performance of the EUT transmit path.
•
Testing the audio performance of the EUT receive path.
•
Putting the EUT into remote loopback.
Testing the EUT’s Audio Performance Using Remote
Loopback on the MT8852A
The EUTs audio performance can be tested using the set-up below. The MT8852A is put
into remote loopback and the audio path tested without passing the signal through the
MT8852A CODEC. The audio is looped back in the MT8852A baseband and so there is
no audio distortion introduced by the tester.

Testing the Audio Performance of the EUT Receive Path
The performance of the EUT receiver can be tested in isolation with the set-up shown
below.
As a replacement for the external audio IN, it is also possible to use an internally
generated tone. Use of this tone is ideal for quick tests and as it is generated internally, it
does not pass through the MT8852A CODEC. The tone is fixed at 1kHz. For
measurement at other frequencies use of external audio is required.
•
Position the signal generator and analyzer as shown in the diagram below.
Note:
Refer to the jack plug diagram on the previous page.
•
Follow the procedure for “Testing the EUTs Audio Performance” but set the “SCO
Loopback” setting to “OFF” (step 8 in the procedure).
•
Set the “SCO tone generator” on page 2 of 3 to “ON” or “OFF” as required.

Putting the EUT into Remote Loopback
It is also possible to put the EUT into remote loopback. The MT8852A will then send and
receive SCO packets from the EUT. The packets will be looped back digitally in the EUT
baseband and so will not introduce any distortion from the analogue circuits.
As with the set-up for testing the performance of the receiver, it is also possible to use an
internally generated 1 kHz tone. Use of this tone is ideal for quick tests and as it is
generated internally, it does not pass through the MT8852A CODEC. The tone is fixed at
1kHz. For measurements at other frequencies use of external audio is required.
•
Position the signal generator and analyzer as shown in the diagram below.
Note:
Refer to the jack plug diagram on the previous page.
•
Follow the procedure for “Testing the EUTs Audio Performance” and use the HCI
software on the control PC to set the EUT to remoter loopback. SCO loopback for
the MT8852A should be set to “OFF” (step 8 in the procedure).
•
Set the “SCO tone generator” on page 2 of 3 to “ON” or “OFF” as required.

Information
Safety
13000-000109
June 2003
This can be an internal or operator error
The cause of operator error, as the name implies, is an incorrect
operation of the MT8850A/MT8852A, during setup/running of a test
e.g. setup of out-of-range limit value for the pass/fail test criteria,
results in the message “ >Error!< out of range value”
This warns you of:
Abnormal condition such as:
“Warning: over temperature”.
Non-standard set up of an instrument such as:
Null Packets. The icon “!“ indicates this condition
Conditions outside the control of MT8850A/MT8852A such as:
“Warning: EUT via RF (0x%x)” (see page Error! Bookmark not
defined.)
This provides you with helpful information where relevant. For
example,
EUT (equipment under test) address mode: if the manual mode is
selected following the auto, the unit disconnects from the EUT and the
following message is displayed:
“EUT disconnected”
The safety here refers to the MT8850A/MT8852A safety such as:
“ SYSTEM SHUTTING DOWN"
" INTERNAL TEMPERATURE EXCEEDED"

Message Priorities
1) MESSAGE PRIORITIES
All status messages are mutually exclusive for example:
“Making connection”
“Connection made”
Script running”
Depending on the use of instrument, more than one message type can be displayed.
For example, the messages “Null packets mode” and “Script running” may be displayed
alternately:
On loss of connection, “Null packets mode” and “Connection lost” will be displayed:
Some message such as “>Error! < minimum value is ------“ are displayed for a short period
(2 seconds).
The safety message is exception to above set of rules. It has the highest priority, over
riding any current messages. Example of safety message:

Bluetooth address source was not set to RS232.
EUT test mode rejected
On completion of the ACL connection, the MT8850A/MT8852A
sends an activate test mode command to the EUT. The EUT
must have been preconfigured to accept this command. If the
EUT has not been initialised to go into test mode, this error
message is shown. Only Null packet mode testing can be
performed in this condition.
EUT Unsupported
feature
The MT8850A/MT8852A has sent a command to the EUT that
the EUT cannot support.

The instrument’s Bluetooth core is now driven only by the
RS232 connection on the MT8850A/MT8852A back panel
using standard HCI commands.
Host timeout
The EUT has not responsed to a connection request before the
accept connection timer has expired.
Incorrect packet length
The packet received from the EUT is not the full length of a
standard DH1, DH3 or DH5 packet. It is therefore not suitable
for measurements.
Repeated attempts
The EUT reports that too little time has elapsed since an
unsuccessful attempted to connect, authenticate or pair.
Invalid Air code
When attempting to establish a SCO connection with the EUT,
the MT8852A air code must correspond to the air code used by
the EUT. Press Config \ MT8852A \ Audio and set the air code
format to match that of the EUT, before attempting a SCO
connection.
Invalid LMP parameters The EUT rejected the LMP due to the parameters not being
compatible with its present state.
Invalid packet type
Warning message from the measurement processor that the
packet received was not the type it had been requested to
measure.
Invalid Payload
The payload has been corrupted and cannot be used for
measurements. Typically this would be an error in the
10101010 or 11110000 bit structure.

Null packets mode
Top-line Messages
The MT8850A/MT8852A is configured to make simple
measurements on Null packets transmitted by the EUT. To
return to standard Bluetooth operating modes press Scpt/Test ,
move the pointer to the script number and press the setup
softkey. Set “Script mode” to Standard.
Role change not allowed During the connection process the EUT has attempted to
become the piconet master. This is not allowed by the

master. Reconfigure the EUT such that it does not attempt to
become a master on connection.
Signal Over Range
The EUT power is greater than the input range of the
MT8850A/MT8852A. The maximum input power for
measurement is +23dBm.
Signal Under Range
The EUT power is below the input range of the
MT8850A/MT8852A. The minimum input power to maintain a
link is -55dBm, and for power measurements is –30dBm.
Single Payload mode
MT8850A/MT8852A has been configured to test an EUT by
sending one test control at a time. This limits the speed with
which a range of measurements can be made, but can improve

Appendix E. Connector Care and Handling
Follow the precautions listed below when handling or connecting cables. Complying with
these precautions will guarantee longer component life and less equipment down time due
to connector or device failure. Also, such compliance will ensure that
Beware of destructive pin depth mating connectors
Destructive pin depth of mating connectors is the major cause of failure in the field. When
an RF component is mated with a connector having a destructive pin depth, damage will
usually occur to the RF component connector. A destructive pin depth is one that is too
long in respect to the reference plane of the connector (see figure below).
N connector pin depth definition
The center pin of a precision RF component connector has a precision tolerance. The
mating connectors of various RF components may not be precision types.
Consequently, the center pins of these devices may not have the proper pin depth.
The pin depth of DUT connectors should be measured to assure compatibility before
attempting to mate them with Power Sensor connectors. An Anritsu Pin Depth Gauge
or equivalent can be used for this purpose.
Pin depth gauge
If the measured connector is out of tolerance in the "+" region, the center pin is too
long (see Allowable DUT connector pin depth table below). Mating under this
condition will likely damage the precision RF component connector. If the test device
connector measures out of tolerance in the "-" region, the center pin is too short. This
should not cause damage, but it will result in a poor connection and a consequent
degradation in performance.

Avoid over torquing connectors
Over torquing connectors is destructive; it may damage the connector center pin. Fingertight is usually sufficient for Type N connectors. Always use a connector torque wrench (8
inch-pounds) when tightening WSMA, K or V type connectors. Never use pliers to tighten
connectors.
Avoid mechanical shock
Precision connectors are designed to withstand years of normal bench handling. However,
do not drop or otherwise treat them roughly. Mechanical shock will significantly reduce
their service life.
Do not disturb Teflon tuning washers on connector center pins
The center conductor on many RF component connectors contains a small Teflon washer
that is located near the point of mating. This washer compensates for minor impedance
discontinuities at the interface. Do not disturb this washer. The location of the washer is
critical to the performance of the RF component.
Cleaning connectors
The precise geometry that makes possible the RF component's high performance can
easily be disturbed by dirt and other contamination adhering to the connector interfaces.
When not in use, keep the connectors covered.
To clean the connector interfaces, use a clean cotton swab that has been dampened with
denatured alcohol.
NOTE: Most cotton swabs are too large to fit in the smaller
connector types. In these cases, it is necessary to peel off most
of the cotton and then twist the remaining cotton tight. Be sure
that the remaining cotton does not get stuck in the connector.
Cotton swabs of the appropriate size can be purchased through
a medical laboratory-type supply center.
The following are some important tips on cleaning connectors:
•
Use only denatured alcohol as a cleaning solvent
•
Do not use excessive amounts of alcohol as prolonged drying of the connector may be
required
•
Never put lateral pressure on the center pin of the connector
•
If installed, do not disturb the Teflon washer on the center conductor pin

•
Verify that no cotton or other foreign material remains in the connector after cleaning it
•
If available, use compressed air to remove foreign particles and to dry the connector
•
