Purpose and Audience
This application note contains instructions for using Broadcom® BlueTool™ software to prepare two BCM20704equipped devices for Bluetooth throughput testing.
This application note is for engineers responsible for conducting Bluetooth throughput measurements of
BCM20704-equipped devices.
About BlueTool
BlueTool is a proprietary Broadcom software tool for exercising, testing, scripting, debugging, and programming
devices that use Broadcom Bluetooth chips. BlueTool runs on a standard PC running the Microsoft Windows
operating system. BlueTool interfaces with the Broadcom Bluetooth chips at the HCI protocol layer. The HCI
UART is supported.
Acronyms and Abbreviations
In most cases, acronyms and abbreviations are defined on first use.

Host System Requirements
A personal computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system is required to use BlueTool. Broadcom
recommends running Windows XP; however, other versions of Windows are supported.
Note: BlueTool is constantly being revised, resulting in operational and other changes to the graphical
user interface. Consequently, this document only contains basic instructions on using BlueTool. These
instructions should remain the same for all BlueTool releases. If discrepancies exist between this
document and the version of BlueTool you are using, contact your Broadcom technical representative
or visit Broadcom’s CSP (see also “References” on page 5).
Hardware Requirements
The following hardware is required to use BlueTool:
•
Two USB cables.
•
Two Broadcom Bluetooth BCM20704-based devices.
•
Two UART-to-USB adapter boards.
The adapter boards are not required if using the USB transport on the BCM20704 device.
Note: Contact your Broadcom sales representative for the UART-to-USB adapter boards.
Software Requirements
BlueTool provides support for Perl scripting. If this feature is being used to automate throughput testing (see
“BlueTool Support for Perl Scripts” on page 17), a Win32 version of ActivePerl (5.8.4 or higher) must be installed
on the host computer. Earlier versions of ActivePerl are not supported.
Note: ActivePerl is available from ActiveState at www.activestate.com.

BlueTool Support for Perl Scripts
BlueTool Support for Perl Scripts
The BlueTool application Bluetooth support (BTSP) Perl module provides an interface for automating BlueTool
operations using Perl scripts. To use BlueTool scripting capabilities, ActivePerl 5.8.4 (or higher) must be installed
on the host PC prior to installing BlueTool.
Sample scripts are included with BlueTool installation software. These files are saved to the following folder
during BlueTool installation:
\\Broadcom BlueTool\Scripts
During installation, the BTSP User Guide is saved to the Broadcom\BlueTool folder. This user guide describes
the fundamentals of automating BlueTool with Perl. A PDF file reader is required to view this guide.
Note: ActivePerl software is available from ActiveState at www.activestate.com.
Note: References to general information on using Perl are provided in “References” on page 5.
