  • Whole-Band Capture: easy and rock-solid capture of any traffic, including discovery / connection traffic and SSP pairing
  • Reprogrammable Digital Radio: support for new specifications without hardware changes
  • Multi-Piconet Support: see multiple piconets and scatternets, without limitations
  • All Protocols and Profiles: best-of-breed protocol decoding
  • Integrated Audio Analysis: listen to captured audio over-the-air, including HCI audio and I2S, within the software, in sync with all other traffic
  • Spectrum Display: characterize the wireless environment and visualize coexistence issues
  • Message Sequence Chart: create charts automatically from the powerful Ellisys protocol display
  • Free Maintenance: Free lifetime software updates as well as free fully-featured viewer software with unlocked hardware that can be used on any computer.

Traffic analysis is one of the key day-to-day activities for Bluetooth engineers looking to rapidly test and debug their prototypes and products. Unfortunately, Bluetooth over-the-air sniffing has always been difficult to perfect. Legacy sniffing methods suffered from major technological drawbacks, making them unreliable and even unusable in several circumstances, making Bluetooth engineers' tasks much more difficult.

With its revolutionary whole-band Digital Radio, Ellisys lifts protocol capture and analysis to new heights, radically overcoming the drawbacks of those legacy approaches to Bluetooth sniffing. The Ellisys all-in-one whole-band sniffer robustly records any packet, at any time, from any neighboring piconet, with zero-configuration and without being intrusive.

BTX Explorer by Ellisys    

The Ellisys BTX Explorer is a Bluetooth stack analysis tool for traffic monitoring, stacks and drivers debugging, interoperability verification and performance analysis. The BTX Explorer can significantly reduce your R&D development time by finding issues early and debugging more efficiently, and can improve quality and reliability by verifying compliance to the specifications.

The Ellisys BTX offers convenient ways to sniff the Bluetooth traffic:

  • Abstract probing: Abstract probing is a means for sniffing Bluetooth protocol via a software source. Logs of a known format can be imported and converted to an Ellisys trace. A powerful application programming interface (API) is included, and enables writing vendor-specific Bluetooth sources for real-time live import to the analysis software.

  • USB HCI probing: USB HCI probing is a convenient way of sniffing a Bluetooth USB dongle. The USB analyzer connects non-intrusively on any link and supports all speeds defined by the USB 2.0 specification.

  • UART HCI probing: UART HCI probing is helpful for sniffing an embedded system consisting of a Bluetooth radio chip connected to a microprocessor though UART. The UART analyzer has various ways to connect to the wires, either with flying leads or with DB-9 connectors. The two UART-based protocols defined by the Bluetooth 2.1 specification are supported, as well as CSR-specific BlueCore Serial Protocol (BCSP). All UART speeds are supported (from 300 to 6 Mbps).

  • SD HCI probing: SD HCI probing enables sniffing an SDIO Bluetooth card connected to an embedded host. The SD probe connects with an interposer board to the system under test and supports all speeds up to 50 MHz.

  • Over-the-air UWB probing: UWB is a high-speed wireless technology considered by the Bluetooth SIG for the upcoming revision of the specification. UWB will be used as high-speed endpoint enabling new multimedia applications. The UWB probe enables over-the-air sniffing of any next generation Bluetooth UWB endpoint.
