Spectrum Analysis

Wireless Protocol Suite


Building upon the success of its predecessor, the Frontline X500, the X500e is a comprehensive one-box solution that seamlessly captures and correlates data from a wide range of wireless communication technologies including Wi-Fi 7. It gives instant visibility into over-the-air traffic, enabling rapid identification and resolution of performance and coexistence issues due to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 802.15.4 all coexisting in the 2.4 GHz ISM band.

Key Features

  • High-performance Protocol Test Solution
  • Two (2) independent Bluetooth radios for superior capture performance
  • One-Box solution for simultaneous time-correlated capture of Bluetooth (BR/EDR) and Low Energy, 802.11be, 802.15.4, and wired technologies
  • Unrivalled Wi-Fi coverage for IEEE 802.11be 2x2 MU-MIMO (Wi-Fi 7), including simultaneous captures on two channels
  • Early access support for Bluetooth Channel Sounding, including live channel violation detection
  • Support for low-rate wireless personal area network (LR-WPAN) like Matter and Thread protocol
  • Logic Analysis via highly user-configurable PODs supports up to 24 channels via 3x 8-channel PODs
  • Capture and decode of HCI USB, HCI SPI, HCI UART (H4/H5/BCSP and WCI-2), and Audio I2S
  • Live or post-capture decryption and analysis
  • Raw RF spectrum view helps identify potential RF conflicts in the 2.4 GHz ISM band
  • Excursion mode allows for one-button PC-free captures
  • Host communication over Ethernet for remote captures
  • Integration into automation setup using extensive APIs
  • Latest decodes for protocols and profiles and much more

The Right Tool for EVERY Job

The Frontline X500e Wireless Protocol Analyzer is the most versatile wireless analysis tool in the industry, boasting support not just for all released and upcoming Bluetooth BR/EDR and Low Energy specifications, but for 802.15.4-based protocols like Matter and Thread, and all of the latest Wi-Fi technologies including Wi-Fi 7, which extends Wi-Fi technology into the 6GHz ISM band.

With RF spectrum analysis, mesh analysis, support for 24 channel logic analysis and Bluetooth antenna-diversity capability, the X500e is truly the right tool for EVERY wireless analysis job. The Frontline X500e comes equipped with Excursion Mode, which allows the user to capture everything in the air at the push of a button, without any PC attached. The system also supports time-correlated operation and capture with other Teledyne LeCroy Protocol Analyzer industry leading tools, using the proprietary CATC Sync connectivity and CrossSync Software.

The integrated Bluetooth Audio Expert System is the first and only analysis tool on the market to combine audio analysis with Bluetooth protocol analysis, allowing developers to quickly pinpoint the root cause of a wide array of Bluetooth protocol-related audio problems in various applications, including latest Bluetooth LE Audio and Bluetooth Auracast for broadcast audio.

Spectrum Analysis

The Frontline X500e Spectrum Analysis feature provides an RF heat map of the entire 2.4GHz ISM Band in Wireless Protocol Suite software. This enables the user to view time-synced captured wireless packets overlaid on top of the captured RF energy within the test environment. Signal strength (RSSI) is displayed when the user hovers over captured RF energy. With this data you can see how multiple technologies coexist in the Coexistence view.

The Spectrum Analysis feature and Coexistence view enables the user to identify RF interference and understand how their wireless devices operate effectively in the crowded 2.4GHz ISM band.

Wireless Protocol Suite

Teledyne LeCroy’s Wireless Protocol Suite combines Frontline’s decades of protocol analysis experience and up-to-the moment spec support with a streamlined interface, bringing all analysis tools into a single dockable framework that can be customized to your own preferred way of working and evaluating information. When paired with Teledyne LeCroy’s uniquely portable and configurable family of wireless protocol analyzers, the Wireless Protocol Suite delivers a world class software experience to anyone working with technologies that utilize the 2.4GHz ISM band.
