Testing Platforms for Contact Implementation in NFC Mobile Phones

Test platforms with emulation and communication analysis capabilities for validation of contact SWP, ISO7816, SPI and I2C interfaces in the NFC implementation in mobile phones

 

KEOLABS provides test platforms and certification solutions for validating contact aspects of Near Field Communications (NFC) implementation, which may be used in a wide range of application areas including access control, fare collection for public transit and payment to name a few. Supported testing functionalities on these platforms include:

  • Contact spy and communication analysis between USIM / eSE and the CLF, or USIM / eSE and the phone's CPU
  • Contact signal emulation to test the phone's CLF, USIM or eSE

Platforms allow validation of the range of technologies implicated in today's NFC systems for communication between the phone's CPU, USIM or other embedded Secure Element (eSE) and the Contactless Front End (CLF) components. Platforms allow concurrent testing of all interfaces including the SWP (HCI/HDLC), ISO7816, SPI and I2C.

Platform configuration and control can be done via a dedicated software interface (RGPA - Real Time Protocol Analyzer), or scripting (Python, JScript, ...) that allows users to define and execute sequences of signals in specific, automated scenarios.

In addition, the combination of contactless and contact test platforms covering NFC, SWP, ISO7816, SPI and I2C in a single offer, provides everything that component manufacturers, handset manufacturers, software developers and other NFC solution implementers require for interoperability testing and certification of NFC objects, systems and solutions.
