NFC Contactless Testing Platforms

Test platforms with emulation and communication analysis capabilities for validation of NFC contactless implementations in mobile phones and compatible smart cards, tags, readers and systems


KEOLABS provides test platforms and certification solutions for validating Near Field Communications (NFC) contactless 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:

  • Contactless spy and communication analysis between the phone's contactless front end (CLF) and other NFC enabled objects or systems
  • Contactless signal emulation to test the CLF or other NFC enabled objects of systems

Platforms allow validation of the range of contactless (13.56 Mhz) technologies implicated in today's NFC systems and products including NFC (IP1, IP2), ISO14443, FeliCa (ISO18025), ISO15693 protocols. 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 capabilities covering NFC, SWP and ISO7816 in the same 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.
