Test tool specialist FIME has announced that its laboratories in Asia, EMEA and Korea have been qualified to perform official NFC Forum analogue certification testing.
These FIME laboratories are now authorised to perform all forms of NFC Forum certification testing, covering analogue, digital, logical link control protocol (LLCP) and simple NDEF (NFC data exchange format) exchange protocol (SNEP).
This news follows an announcement from the NFC Forum in September 2014 that it has added analogue testing to its certification programme. The NFC Forum analogue certification offers the world’s first detailed evaluation of the radio frequency (RF) performance of an NFC device, confirming that the certified device fulfils the RF requirements and is compliant with the NFC Analogue Technical Specification.
“Having been engaged with the NFC Forum for many years, it is great to continue this relationship and be amongst the first third-party laboratories to achieve this qualification,” comments Stephanie El Rhomri, NFC & payment vendors business line manager at FIME. “Consistent RF performance is essential for the future growth of NFC devices and services, as consumers will only adopt the technology if it is smooth, swift and seamless.”
