Audio Precision Bluetooth I/O hardware module
Audio Precision has introduced a new Bluetooth I/O hardware module for APx Series audio analysers.
Featuring a built-in Bluetooth radio and integrated control software, the APx Bluetooth option allows comprehensive audio test over Bluetooth wireless technology. Its major advantage is to allow engineers to measure Bluetooth devices directly from within Apx’s software, eliminating the uncertainty and inconvenience of adapters and making Bluetooth audio test ‘faster, easier and more reliable’.
Once the new module is installed in an APx analyser, all Bluetooth controls are integrated into the analyser software.
APx supports A2DP, HFP, HSP, and AVRCP profiles and SBC and CVSD codecs, allowing over 30 one-click acoustic and electronic testing of Bluetooth-connected headsets, hands-free devices, automotive head units, A/V receivers and smartphones can be carried out in seconds. Using the module’s built-in Bluetooth radio, combined with the other connectivity options of APx (including high performance analogue, AES3 digital, SPDIF, HDMI and I2S), every part of a device’s audio chain can be comprehensively and systematically measured with one analyser.
‘Now engineers can test their Bluetooth devices with the world’s most advanced audio analyser, confident that their results will be trusted everywhere,’ says Tom Williams, VP of Marketing for Audio Precision.
The Bluetooth option for APx will ship at the end of June 2011, priced at US$4500 in the US.
