A systematic analysis is presented to calculate the packet-loss probability in Bluetooth™ transmissions impaired by electromagnetic interference (EMI) from the 3rd harmonic of 800 MHz mobile phones. Considerations of the GFSK modulation adopted are duly taken into account. The effects of EM radiation from the 3rd harmonic of 800 MHz mobile phones, in the transmission mode, on the relevant performance impairment are determined. Simulation studies on Bluetooth™ communications consistent with the available details pertinent to EMI from mobile phones are presented, and relevant conclusions on the interference involved are elucidated.
