NFC Interoperability Testing

Leading Provider of NFC Interoperability Testing for NFC-Enabled Devices

CISC offers interoperability testing for NFC-enabled devices including mobile phones, wearables, contactless payment terminals (POS terminals), generic readers, and smart cards. The NFC Interoperability Test Lab features multiple fully automated test setups. A wide range of readers, mobiles and smart cards are available to serve as communication counterparts for the interoperability tests. The default test procedures may be fully adapted based on customer requirements. Test results are typically provided in tabular and graphical representation and are accumulated into comprehensive reports. Optionally, debugging details can be provided for application, protocol, data, timing, or signal layers.

Most devices available in the NFC Interoperability Test Lab are available for sale to test customers. They are provided with all required software (32 bit, and many for 64 bit) for hassle-free use in the customer’s lab.

Turnkey NFC interoperability test systems

The NFC interoperability test setup is a turnkey solution for interoperability tests of NFC-enabled devices (mobiles, wearables, smart cards) with focus on contactless payment applications. The aim of the test setup is to verify interoperability between contactless mobile payment devices or smartcards and EMV Level 1 contactless approved proximity coupling devices (payment readers). For this purpose, the test setup automatically conducts contactless payment transactions at different positions and evaluates the results. The readers serve as qualified equipment and are part of the test setup. Various system configurations with different sets of readers are available. Each of the multiple test setups consists of a positioning robot, six payment readers, and a test PC with all required software to control the individual components and to automatically or manually conduct interoperability tests.

We currently support the following terminals:
