HEAD acoustics Supports Bluetooth® LE Audio Testing

LE Audio is an entirely new Bluetooth® implementation. The first Bluetooth® LE Audio technology introduced into the market is Auracast™ broadcast audio, which fully integrates with the HEAD acoustics test frontend labCORE for testing and optimization.

A new era of Bluetooth® Testing
With Bluetooth® LE Audio, a new generation of Bluetooth® technology devices enters the market, addressing new industries and applications such as hearing aids, public address systems, and broadcasting devices like TVs to employ the Auracast™ technology. Testing and optimization are mandatory and require a reference implementation of the new stack and the new LC3 codec combined with the best testing strategies, like an acoustic environment simulation – especially background noise – for optimizing the performance of headsets and other devices in environments where Auracast™ will be used.

Implementation in labCORE: the complete test solution
The HEAD acoustics test frontend labCORE simulates the Auracast™ source and sink devices. With coreBT2LE Auracast, HEAD acoustics provides a complete software-based implementation, including the audio and speech codec. In conjunction with the analysis system ACQUA, the background noise and reverb simulation 3PASSlab, 3PASSflex, and 3PASSreverb, users can rely on a test and simulation environment for all device types, enabling them to validate and optimize Auracast performance comprehensively. 

The test solution's main features are:
•    Auracast™ source and sink reference client
•    LC3 codec reference implementation 
•    Completely integrated into the HEAD acoustics test environment
•    Tests and test sequences integrated into ACQUA allow for fully automated testing
•    Future-proof due to software-based implementation
