NFC Forum Conformance Certification

Conformance testing services for reliable, secure NFC mobile phones, cards and readers

NFCF_Authorized Test Lab

NFC Forum specifies international testing standards for functional validation at the analog and digital protocol levels of phones, smart cards, devices and other systems implementing the NFC protocol in 13.56 Mhz contactless communications. NFC Forum standards are the foundation for ensuring the reliability and interoperability of NFC systems and devices. The NFC Forum standard and derived testing solutions allow conformance assessment of:

  • End-user contactless devices (smart cards (PICC), tags, keyfobs, NFC handsets)
  • Packaged devices (inlays, modules)
  • Embedded integrated circuits (hardware chips, secure elements)

Conformance Testing Services

KEOLABS' Testing Laboratory is an NFC Forum authorized conformance testing center. The laboratory provides protocol and analog level testing services for functional validation of the RF implementation in a variety of products that use the NFC communication protocol. Tested products range from cards and tags (listener devices) to NFC mobile phones implementing both poller and listener modes.

Testing services for systems and devices in polling and listening modes include:

  • SNEP, LLCP verification
  • Digital-level verification
  • Analog-level verification

The laboratory is an accredited testing facility for the smart card industry and an authorized NFC Forum testing center.
