Issue Details

I want to view all of the bus traffic coming from my Bluetooth device.  I have an NI VSA that is acquiring the IQ data from the Bluetooth device.  Can the LabVIEW Bluetooth Test Toolkit analyze all the incoming packets from IQ data?

Solution

The LabVIEW Bluetooth Test Toolkit was not designed for packet sniffing, but it can provide the raw bits of a single packet that it's analyzing using the niBT SA BER Get Current Iteration Demodulated Bits Trace VI.  You could break up the IQ data into individual packets and analyze each one at a time.
