SoderaTM Series of Bluetooth Protocol Analyzers

Frontline Sodera

The Sodera series of Bluetooth protocol analyzers provides the ultimate in portability and flexibility to engineers. Sodera is available in ether base or advanced configuration, and is able to capture traffic including Bluetooth low energy (LE), Bluetooth classic (BR/EDR), or both at the same time. Just choose your configuration and start capturing data.

Sodera analyzers are extremely portable and easy to use. Developers and QA engineers capture data effortlessly in the lab or in automotive and other remote settings. “Excursion Mode” allows the developer to capture all Bluetooth traffic in the air with the push of one button, completely independent of a PC connection. Data can be captured in the real-world setting, then decrypted and analyzed back at the lab. Supported by Frontline Sodera’s compact size and replaceable battery, testing in automobiles and other power-sparse environments becomes not just possible, but absolutely convenient.

Wireless Protocol Suite Software
You've Got Options

Choose the Sodera that's right for you - capture Bluetooth LE, BR/EDR, or BOTH! You can select a configuration that works with your budget and development needs. Available in "Base" and "Advanced" configurations.

Broaden Your View - See it all!

With the Frontline Sodera Wideband Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer you see all Bluetooth traffic on all channels - everything that is in the air! View inquiry and paging packets along with Bluetooth all low energy and all BR/EDR packets. See them all simultaneously as they happen.

  • Every Bluetooth packet type captured simultaneously, on all channels, as they occur:
    • Pre-connection traffic – Paging and Inquiry, Frequency Hopping Sequence (FHS)
    • Bluetooth BR/EDR packets
    • Bluetooth low energy packets
    • BOTH Bluetooth low energy and BR/EDR packets together in a single coexistence view
Portable and Easy to Use

There has never been a more versatile and easier to use Bluetooth protocol analyzer. Its compact format and built in battery pack makes it easy to use in the lab or in the field. Just turn it on and choose the devices and topologies that you want to follow, then view the data in familiar views within Frontline software like “Frame Display”, “Timeline”, “Packet Error Rate Statistics”, “Coexistence View and Spectrum Analysis”, “ Message Sequence Chart”, and more!

  • Compact format (6.25" wide X 2.125" tall X 6.5" deep)
  • Select your devices to focus on and your piconets and topologies
  • Single click to start capturing data
  • Built in battery pack - handles power interruptions and power cycling - great for automotive testing
  • Decrypt and analyze data DURING or AFTER capture - live and post-capture decryption

Teledyne LeCroy has spent years developing and refining our world renowned family of Frontline protocol analyzers. With Frontline analyzers you can decode and decrypt live communication streams between Bluetooth devices. We have built in all existing Bluetooth profiles and much more. This powerful tool incorporates years of Bluetooth experience with the best decodes on the planet.
