Raisonance has announced the availability of its next generation signal emulator for smart card testing and certification.
According to Raisonance, the new ProxiLAB3 provides all the features required for testing smart cards, readers and NFC mobile phones in all modes of operation – passive, active and peer-to-peer.
With ProxiLAB3, users can digitally modify parameters of test antennas so they are controlled from a software interface, making it possible to automatically run a complete battery of tests without physically touching or modifying the hardware installation.
Additionally, ProxiLAB3 allows user to add support for the protocols that they require, including ISO 14443, NFC, FeliCa and ISO 15693.
The device also features demodulation capabilities, which reduces the tools required to run a test bench, cutting the overall cost of a complete test bench by several thousand dollars.
According to Smart Card Group Director Benoit Hedou, by reducing test bench cost, small- and medium-sized companies can leverage the same technology as industry leaders and laboratories to pre-certify their products, improving time to market by eliminating delays imposed by failed certification in a laboratory.
