This paper from Computer Access Technology examines various techniques for synchronizing a Bluetooth Analyser like the CATC Merlin to a Bluetooth Piconet and shows how and when one might use the different approaches. This paper also explains the terminology Bluetooth Master is used for the device, which initiates a Bluetooth connection and/or maintains a Piconet with one or more Bluetooth devices. A Bluetooth Slave or Target device is one that responds to the initiating device and/or is a subordinate unit of the piconet after it has been established.
The CATC Trace is an intuitive and powerful expert protocol analysis software system, used to ease the design, test and debug of various products employing advanced communication protocols. The CATC Trace is offered as an integral part of CATCs extensive line of protocol analysis products, supporting the Bluetooth, Fibre Channel, IEEE 1394, InfiniBand, PCI Express, Serial ATA and USB standards. CATCs analyzers accurately monitor, capture, filter and analyze high-speed communications traffic, allowing the customers to quickly discover and correct persistent and intermittent errors and flaws in their product design.
