Automate protocol and
profile interoperability testing.

The Bluetooth® Profile Tuning Suite (PTS) is testing software that automates compliance testing to the specified functional requirements of Bluetooth Host Parts and specifications that reside above the Host Controller Interface (HCI). The vision of the product is to provide complete and validated test coverage, of all specified functional requirements in scope, to the Bluetooth development and testing community.

Profile Tuning Suite (PTS)

Starting with PTS 8.0.0, the manual step of selecting and connecting to one of the available radio modules will be required before executing PTS test cases (See PTS Help, Section “Connecting a Dongle”).

In addition, updates to PTS Automation API clients will be necessary (See corresponding PTS Sample Code and Documentation).  

To enable utilization of Extended Advertising feature, PTS 8.0.0 introduced support for a new Bluetooth Low Energy radio module (Laird Connectivity, part number 451-00004).  

Starting with PTS 8.0.1, the protocol viewer will no longer be included in the PTS installation package. The protocol viewer can be downloaded separately from the PTS installer (See PTS/PV Download Page).
