MAX6  aplication for android available from GOOGLE PLAY - click below:

  

or just  search  "MAX6"  in Google Play 


online MANUAL  to  MAX6.apk



  
Without hardware connected You can test program with measurement already stored in installation package  :-), just install program, start and RUN button for open stored file 



Only MAX6 with 8 button is compatibly with Android application ...  work in progress for old vna models..... 

MAX6 firmware must be higher than v2-69 .

Possible connection  to MAX6 -->  Bluetooth or USB cable, but you must remember that in the market there are a lot of version of Android, and part of  vendors, making truncated versions of the operating system and not all PHONE or TABLET offers full support for Bluetooth SPP or USB HOST.


Bluetooth - in most Android works - also in older versions 2.xx working properly transfer data via Bluetooth. But I met new phones with Android 4.xxx in which SPP profile data was not supported !!!
( ...more info about all Bluetooth Profiles  - for more interested.)


USB  HOST -in some Android with USB HOST works - But I met new phones with Android 4.xxx in which USB HOST is limited...  Mouse work, USB memory work...  but  FTDI not work ...

Just before buy Phone or Tablet very good to test it  :-)



How to install    Bluetooth module inside  MAX6 

Film z YouTube




For work with Bluetooth connection we must have installed internal Bluetooth module  see on photo on right side >>

For module ask  sp3swj@gmail.com


Other option is to use external Bluetooth module HC-06 connected to ACCESSORY connector 




Bluetooth factory new module  HC06 can be configured directly from MAX6  to transmission parameter for proper work with MAX6 with button below INIT .

Properly configured module is automatically detected.


Module must be model HC-06 with chip on board  MX.......

For external Bluetooth  module MAX6 functionality is limited only to VNA function...  not support filter measurement...








For work with USB - we need  USB OTG cable...  in some tablet is available as standard accessory... for other wee need buy separately
