UT3 platform begins test cases for LLCP, SNEP Phase 2

Posted: 23 Feb 2015 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


NFC Forum has given a green light to COMPRION, allowing it to implement test cases for the second phase of Logical Link Control Protocol (LLCP) and Simple NDEF Exchange Protocol (SNEP), making it as one of the first companies to do so. In addition to the digital protocol, RF analogue and the first phase of LLCP and SNEP, the NFC Forum Test solution provider's conformance test system UT3 platform also supports the latest improvement of the NFC Forum's certification testing.

SNEP enables the data exchange between two NFC devices operating in NFC Forum peer-to-peer mode. The protocol makes use of LLCP, a connection-oriented transport mode providing reliable data exchange. One practical example for the use of the protocols is the data exchange between two smartphones for v-cards, pictures or videos.

The test case validation for these protocols took place in two steps. COMPRION completed the first phase in September 2014, and the second phase of the validation of COMPRION's test tool was approved in February 2015. Ralph Kamp, product manager at COMPRION, said: "COMPRION has been significantly involved in the standardisation process of the test cases. Our active work within the NFC Forum allows us to supply our customers such as chipset and handset vendors as well as test houses, promptly with test solutions covering the latest requirements of the certification program."

Paula Hunter, executive director of the NFC Forum noted, "Advanced test systems are vital to our mission of ensuring global interoperability of NFC devices. We at the NFC Forum applaud COMPRION for its efforts to keep NFC conformance testing comprehensive and up to date."
