Power Sensors for IoT Bluetooth Testing

LadyBug Technologies’ LB479A and LB480A are ideal for testing Bluetooth devices. The sensors have very good dynamic range and are suitable for measuring radiated power as well as direct connectivity to the Bluetooth DUT. Both sensors provide statistical pulse measurement capability. This capability is ideal for manufacturing test systems where a quick numerical measurement of average and pulse power is required without complex measurement setup. The LB480A includes triggering features along with pulse profiling capability. LadyBug sensors can be ordered with a variety of connectors reducing or eliminating adaptor requirements, thereby increasing measurement accuracy.
