With the support from 7 layers, a specialist in wireless communications testing, LG Electronics has enlarged its in-house test capacities. It took LG only a short time to become an officially recognized Bluetooth Test Facility (BRTF). 7 layers set-up an InterLab Bluetooth RF Test Solution in the laboratories of LG and provided information and training to speed up the accreditation process.
LG uses the InterLab Bluetooth RF Test Solution, which is based on the InterLab System Software with integrated Rohde & Schwarz instruments. "We mainly chose this system because of its high automation level", says Jagon Lee at Q&R Center of LG Electronics. "Full automation, as ensured by this Bluetooth test solution, is a must for us, since testing is becoming both faster and more reliable at the same time. The additional training sessions and the valuable information we got from 7 layers, helped us considerably in order to quickly achieve the accreditation status. Since both quality and speed are important to our success, the services from 7 layers suited us perfectly."
"Working with LG on this project was a great pleasure for us, says Tom Wellner from 7 layers. "The experienced engineers from LG were well prepared and cooperative. It only took a short time to set-up the new system in their already extensive laboratories, which they can now use, both for development and qualification test processes. Should any questions arise, we are very happy to further support them via our Bluetooth service centers in Korea or Irvine."
In order to cover its continuously growing test demands, LG had already set-up an in-house test laboratory based on software-tools and services from 7 layers. The Bluetooth RF Test Solution, they have now implemented, covers all RF tests defined by the Bluetooth Specification version 2.1+EDR, which are necessary for qualifying modern Bluetooth products with enhanced data rate throughput. It is an ideal tool for the efficient qualification of such modern high tech products as LG is developing and manufacturing.
