The ContactLAB test platform provides fully configurable signal emulation for validation of ISO 7816 contact smart cards, Single Wire Protocol (SWP) for USIM and ContactLess Front End (CLF), and SPI or I2C interfaces of embedded Secure Elements (eSE) in NFC mobile phones. Its combination of functionality, precision and control make ContactLAB the ideal tool for component:
ContactLAB tests implementation at electrical, protocol and application level. The platform provides full control of signal electrical and timing characteristics, allowing electrical characterization of the device. In addition, users have complete control of protocol commands, command sequences, and timing characteristics. This allows the creation of test cases for any use scenario in order to test card behavior both within and beyond the specifications of industry standards.
ContactLAB comes as a complete hardware and software test platform that includes:
ContactLAB capabilities are determined by the tool's licence options. This allows users to order the functionality they need - reader, spy and/or emulator, ISO 7816, SPI, I2C and/or SWP.
