COMPRION solution enables conformance verification of cards and smartphones on digital level.
As the first company, COMPRION has received the letter of qualification for its COMPRION EMVCo PICC Digital Test Solution for EMVCo specification 2.6b. The solution tests if mobile phones or banking cards used for contactless transactions comply with the specification. Hence, test laboratories and manufacturers of cards and smartphones use the solution for preparation of type approval before product launch. Swantje Missfeldt, Product Manager for EMVCo Solutions at COMPRION, explains: “The EMVCo PICC Digital Test Solution contributes to making payment devices globally interoperable and enabling a high customer acceptance thanks to a smooth and reliable functioning of the technology.”
The payment device (smartphone or card) is tested by simulating the POS terminal and the payment process using the COMPRION system UT³ Platform and a PCD antenna. The test software examines if the payment device behaves as intended. In this testing setup, exact timings play an important role to transmit transaction details reliably. Thus, for example, response times and waiting times are measured with a very high precision.
