Saelig Distributes Low-Energy Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer from Teledyne LeCroy

Saelig Co. has announced the availability of its BPA low-energy Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer from Teledyne LeCroy—a portable protocol analyzer for wireless transmissions that adhere to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) specifications. Saelig is Teledyne LeCroy's authorized North American distributor.

Suitable for field or lab use, the analyzer is USB-powered, thus eliminating the need for an external power supply. This analyzer supports all mandatory BLE features through Bluetooth version 4.2, the company reports, and ships with Frontline software, thereby allowing Bluetooth developers to view events as they occur live. The system decodes and decrypts the Bluetooth data for full analysis and troubleshooting issues.

Teledyne LeCroy's Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer
Measuring 3.5 inches by 1.75 inches by 0.71 inch, the system decodes all Bluetooth low-energy traffic, including advertising packets, data packets and LL control packets. It scans all three advertising channels concurrently, allowing a single BPA low-energy analyzer to detect connection requests from initiators on any of the three channels. Once the connection is established, the analyzer follows the link across all BLE channels, capturing and displaying information sent back and forth between connected devices or piconets, and decrypting and decoding the data transmitted and received by the devices using various profiles and protocols.

According to the company, setup does not require synchronization to devices. For coping with proprietary wireless protocols, the system ships with DecoderScript software, enabling proprietary data to be fully decoded and displayed in the Frontline software.
