AT4 wireless laboratories in Taipei in Taiwan, Herndon in the U.S. and Malaga in Spain are now offering a testing service that will certify devices designed according to NFC Forum global standards.

Using the Rider NFC test system for digital protocol testingthe first test solution developed by AT4 wireless and approved for NFC Forum certificationthe laboratories will work to ensure that NFC devices are tested to NFC Forum certification requirements.

NFC is a short-range wireless connectivity technology that provides intuitive, simple and safe communication between electronic devices. Communication occurs when two NFC-compatible devices are brought within a few centimeters of one another. NFC operates at 13.56MHz and transfers data at up to 424Kbit/s. Because the transmission range is so short, NFC-enabled transactions are inherently secure.

"This new service allows us to extend our portfolio of testing and certification services that already includes Bluetooth qualification, Wi-Fi, Continua Health Alliance, GCF, PTCRB and WiMAX Forum certification along with regulatory testing and Worldwide Compliance Services, and strengthen our position as the leading laboratory for manufacturers of wireless devices," said Andres Moreno, sales and marketing director at AT4 wireless.
