Near Ultrasound tests

This document contains steps for conducting near ultrasound (formerly known as hifi ultrasound) microphone and speaker tests. See the Audio section for general audio implementation instuctions.

Near Ultrasound Microphone Tests

Prerequisites: Prepare two devices, one as the test device, one as the reference device. The reference can be Nexus 6, Nexus 5, or any device that is known to be able to produce near ultrasound sound.

Step 1: Open Near Ultrasound Microphone Tests on both devices
