WL1837MOD: WL1837 Spurious Emissions Testing

Part Number: WL1837MOD
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: WL1837, , , WL18XXCOM82SDMMC


we are using the TI WL1837 in a product SKU, and as part of RCM certification (AUS/NZ) we are required to carry out spurious emissions testing on our product as a whole, rather than relying on the reports provided from TI.

Here is what we need to test with our EMC partner:

  • Burst Transmit – Top, Middle and Bottom channels
  • Continuous Transmit – Top, Middle and Bottom channels
  • Continuous Receive – Top, Middle and Bottom channels

We found the TI WiLink Wireless Tools which looks like it can be used for this kind of testing, however we do not have physical access to the connectivity required for direct UART access from an external PC. Is there a test tool or another option on our product itself? To explain further, our product in Linux based and the WL1837 is already connected via UART for standard operation etc, is there a command line tool we can use for Linux to provide the functionality required for the above tests?

Alternatively, maybe we don't need a dedicated tool if there is another way to achieve this?

Thank you,
