COMPRION has developed a new testing API, a programming interface
that allows developers to write their own test cases in the contactless
environment (NFC Forum, EMVCo, ISO/IEC 18092, ISO/IEC 14443).
As the API offers the opportunity to implement user-defined scenarios
in a lab environment, it is of high value for everyone involved in the
development of contactless devices and applications. Product Manager
Ralph Kamp explains, “Device and chipset manufacturers, for example,
are interested in testing beyond what’s demanded by the different
contactless standards. They want to test their devices at the limits and
indicate and solve possible field problems before launch.”
Furthermore, the Contactless Testing API is also a useful tool for
manufacturers of contactless tags and readers, application developers,
and test labs.
The Contactless Testing API offers a wide range of analog parameters
that are adjustable such as the waveform, load modulation amplitude,
frequency, and bitrate. Kamp explicates, “With the Waveform Editor,
the user is able to compile analog parameters in a very easy and
convenient way. This is important for testing the device behavior
according to threshold values.” Above that, COMPRION’s well-known
Analog Scope and monitoring functionality can be used for analyzing
the communication. Analog Scope is an integrated oscilloscope
allowing the analysis of the signal flow on the electrical level. It comes
with “Quick Measurements” – pre-configured, frequently used
measurements. The monitoring software records and analyzes the
contactless communication. It helps technology experts to analyze the
communication and identify errors. It even offers the opportunity of
writing automated monitoring analyzers.
The Contactless Testing API is based on the widespread programming
language C#. Thus, there is no need to learn an additional tool-specific
language. The API is available for the COMPRION testers CLT One and
UT³ Platform. Depending on which part of the contactless
communication shall be tested (PICC/PCD, poller/listener); COMPRION
also provides the corresponding antennas.
