IAR Systems test/debug and qualification tool, PreQual, is a generic test
platform which today has an implementation for Bluetooth test/debug and
qualification. IAR PreQual has earlier released test suites for the Bluetooth
application profiles LAN access and headset.
IAR PreQual enables manufacturers to test and qualify Bluetooth products
according to the Qualification Program Reference Document (PRD). IAR PreQual
contains test suites for all protocols and profiles above HCI for qualification
testing as well as for various application profiles.
Until today executable test suites have been available for the following
protocols and profiles: HCI, BlueUnit, Generic Access Profile (GAP), Logical
Link Control and Adaptation Protocol (L2CAP), Service Discovery Protocol (SDP),
Serial Port Profile (SPP), RFCOMM, headset profile and LAN access profile.
Now we can see that our effort to implement test suites for different
profiles is having effect, says Lars Sjöberg, Sales and Marketing Manager,
Bluetooth Products, the Bluetooth backbone is in place and now, when more and
more products are being developed, we are there with our application profile
test suites. Dial-up networking is very essential in Bluetooth, especially for
all manufacturers of telecommunication equipment.
Conformance and interoperability testing is essential for the Bluetooth
technology. In this area IAR Systems has expertise and provides both services
and products to give manufacturers a one-stop-shop for test and
