High-tech robot performs automatic NFC positioning tests

AT4 wireless has announced a new functionality for its NFC test tools that allows fully automated positioning of devices for testing purposes.

This feature uses a highly accurate robot, designed by AT4 wireless, which tests the operating volume of the device and automatically checks its RF behavior at different positions.

AT4 wireless has brought together its technical knowledge as a testing laboratory and its background in the development of test tools for advanced wireless technologies to come up with a complete NFC package that now includes the implementation of automatic positioning. Automatic positioning has clear benefits for users. In addition to saving time when performing multiple measurements, test engineers will obtain maximum accuracy due to the exact positioning of the device. Another key advantage is traceability, in that tests can be exactly reproduced in identical circumstances.

“Adding the robot to our NFC portfolio is a very important milestone. Our next objective is to be among the first companies to validate test cases for the NFC Forum RF test suite and contribute to the deployment of the technology. AT4 wireless strives to provide test systems that offer maximum accuracy, robustness, time and cost efficiency to customers.”, said Angel Romero NFC Product Manager.
