With an execution time of approximately 1.5 hours for the EMVCo Type A tests, the new system is the most efficient test solution. Swantje Missfeldt, EMVCo Product Manager at COMPRION, states “We are very proud of the speed considering the high number of positions, repetitions and the necessary calculations as well as measurements.” The highly automated system works very accurately thanks to a six-axis Kawasaki robot that is able to position the mobile phone or bank card at all angles imaginable. Missfeldt adds “The COMPRION solution is the only one with an integrated oscilloscope, saving extra hardware and calibration costs.”
The COMPRION EMVCo solution is the result of the increasing convergence of the telecommunication and banking industries driven by the growing mobile payment deployments. Handset manufacturers that want to enable mobile payment services on their devices need to prove – also as part of the GSMA TS.27 NFC Handset Test Book requirements – that they conform to EMVCo standards. Otherwise, their devices will not be approved for the market. Missfeldt explains “As many of our customers, such as handset- and chip manufacturers as well test laboratories, already use the COMPRION conformance test system UT³ Platform for GCF and NFC Forum mobile phone type approval, we have been asked to also offer the new EMVCo tests on the same system – in the known high quality.“
