AUDIO PRECISION Brings Clarity To Bluetooth Audio Test. - Bluetooth option for APx analyzers delivers best-in-class audio test for all Bluetooth audio devices.

AP has announced a Bluetooth option for its APx Series audio analyzers. With its built-in Bluetooth radio, the new hardware module delivers best in class wireless audio test, fully integrated into AP's user-friendly software with over 30 one-click acoustic and electronic tests.

Beaverton, Oregon, USA: Audio Precision, the recognized standard in audio test, today introduced a new Bluetooth I/O hardware module for its APx500 Series audio analyzers, featuring a built-in Bluetooth radio and integrated control software. The APx Bluetooth option allows comprehensive audio test over Bluetooth wireless technology, with the speed and reliability of Audio Precision audio analyzers. Its major advantage is that it lets engineers measure their Bluetooth devices directly from within APx's user-friendly 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 audio analyzer, all Bluetooth controls are integrated into the analyzer software. APx supports A2DP, HFP, HSP, and AVRCP profiles and SBC and CVSD codecs, allowing over 30 one-click acoustic and electronic tests to be carried out in seconds on Bluetooth-connected headsets, hands-free devices, automotive head units, A/V receivers, and smartphones. Using the new module's built-in Bluetooth radio, combined with the other connectivity options of APx (including high performance analog, AES3 digital, S/PDIF, HDMI and I2S), every part of a device's audio chain can be comprehensively and systematically measured with one analyzer.

"We're very proud to bring AP performance to the wireless world," says Tom Williams, VP of Marketing for Audio Precision. "Now engineers can test their Bluetooth devices with the world's most advanced audio analyzer, confident that their results will be trusted everywhere."

    Quantifying the Intelligibility of Speech

    Developed as a method for quantifying the intelligibility of speech with respect to a transmission medium—for example a room, an intercom system, a radio link—STI is an objective measure that provides a single rating between 0 and 1 that predicts the likelihood of syllables, words and sentences being comprehended within the intended medium. The rating is broken down into qualification bands ranging from “bad” (0 to 0.36), to “excellent” (0.75 to 1.0).

  • PDM option for APx

    Pulse Density Modulation (PDM) is a one-bit, high rate data stream that conveys a signal by modulating the density of the pulses. A typical application for PDM is the Micro-Electrical-Mechanical System (MEMS) microphone found on smartphones.

    The APx PDM option provides direct connectivity for audio devices that have a PDM output (such as a MEMS microphone) or input (such as the decimator on a smartphone chip). In addition to all the standard audio measurements, APx provides variable DC voltage, variable sample rate, and a PSR (power supply rejection) measurement to test the device’s full operating parameters. No other analyzer combines direct PDM connectivity with APx’s best in class speed, ease-of-use, and performance.
