The Best Solution To Verify Your NFC Applications


KEOLABS OFFERS OFF-THE-SHELF SOLUTIONS TO VERIFY CONFORMITY OF NFC ENABLED OBJECTS AND SYSTEMS TO RELEVANT STANDARDS INCLUDING NFC FORUM AND ISO/IEC 14443.

The testing environment meets strict conformance requirements to NFC Forum standards for verifying analog, digital and application implementations in passive devices (cards, tags, mobiles, etc) and active systems (readers, mobiles). 

 

The NFC Forum provides international test specifications for functional validation at the analog and protocol levels of phones, tags, devices and other systems implementing the NFC protocol in 13.56 Mhz contactless communications.

These specifications are the foundation for ensuring the reliability and interoperability of NFC systems and devices. The NFC Forum specifications and derived testing solutions allow conformance assessment of:

  • End-user contactless devices (smart cards (PICC), tags, keyfobs, NFC handsets)
  • Packaged devices (inlays, modules)
  • Embedded integrated circuits (hardware chips, secure elements)

KEOLABS provides complete testing solutions developed and qualified in accordance with NFC Forum requirements.

Used by the best Mobile Makers

KEOLABS’ Analog, Digital and SNEP/LLCP test suites for NFC Forum testing allow validation of the analog, digital-level and SNEP/LLCP implementations of devices in polling or listening modes for use in NFC applications.

The testing solutions are complemented by a complete test bench that includes NFC testing accessories, which are developed in strict conformance their testing standards.

SCRIPTIS: an intuitive testing environement

SCRIPTIS™ software is a complete, open and simple testing environment. It runs on the user’s PC and allows easy control of a range of software/hardware solutions designed for testing conformance of smart cards, card readers, related components and systems in accordance with relevant industry standards.

KEOLABS’ test suites are used in SCRIPTIS™ testing environment which facilitates testing with automation features such as visual cues and aids for manual testing, or robot integration for fully automated testing. SCRIPTIS provides full visibility of test results including logs and traces of communications between the test bench and the tested device.
