1 The C/I performance receiver test requires an additional signal source with Bluetooth capability such as the N4010A, N5182A MXG, or the E4438C ESG for the interfering signal.

2 The blocking performance receiver test requires a Bluetooth modulated source such as the N4010A, N5182A MXG or E4438C ESG and a microwave signal source such as the N5183A MXG Analog Signal Generator or E8257D PSG to generate the interfering signal (30 MHz to 12.75 GHz).

3 The intermodulation performance receiver test requires two Bluetooth modulated sources such as the N4010A, N5182A MXG, or E4438C ESG and one CW/analog source such as the MXG N5181A, N5183A MXG, E4428C ESG or the E8257D PSG to generate intermodulation.

4 N4010A-101 for Bluetooth required for Bluetooth 1.2 tests. Option 101 and Option 107 required for Bluetooth EDR tests.

5 The EDR C/I performance receiver test requires an additional signal source with Bluetooth EDR capability such as the N4010A EDR Tx/Rx Option 105 or N5182A MXG signal generator with N7606B Signal Studio software.

6 Requires Option AYA

7 Requires use of GPSA mode

8 Power control test could be accomplished by manual output power test step by step if the DUT can be controlled in this manner.
