TechPats has excellent expertise in NFC (Near-Field Communications) technology. Our expertise covers communications protocols and data exchange formats based on existing RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) standards. We have a number of technical experts with over 25 years of experience in R&D, product development and development of standards. We also have testing capabilities that allow us to conduct testing both in a lab environment and in live networks. Other more traditional reverse engineering capabilities such as software RE and circuit extraction are also available when testing solutions are not sufficient.
Whether it is to confirm use of an essential feature of a standard, an optional feature of the standard, an implementation specific feature related to the standard or other non-standardized feature, TechPats has a wide range of capabilities for testing those features. Each solution has it advantages and disadvantage and we select the best solution for the client needs.
Figure 1 shows an example test setup for NFC testing. Two NFC devices are connected to each and a monitoring laptop is capable of monitoring the communications between the NFC devices with the use of an NFC antenna interposed between the two NFC devices.
