National Instruments today announces that FIME, a worldwide leader in payments testing and consultancy, has adopted its EMV® Level 1 v3.0 analog offering to perform debug as well as official type approval sessions for contactless terminals, smartcards and mobile devices. This strategic decision enabled FIME to be among the first laboratories in the world to be accredited by EMVCo to perform validation services according to the new specification.
Stéphane Czeck, director of marketing for NFC and Wireless Charging at NI, commented : “NI being among the first to obtain certification for our EMV L1 test tools enabled FIME to start its qualification campaign earlier than the competition, while the specific laboratory tools that are supplied with our EMV L1 analog test suites considerably accelerated its data collection. As testing against the previous version of the specification will be deactivated from 1st January 2020, it is crucial for the members of the ecosystem to immediately start to update their products to meet the new specification. By selecting the NI offering, FIME has already capacity to support those industries using EMVCo certified test benches.”
FIME is already accredited to perform EMV L1 PCD 3.0 test services in its laboratories in France, Taiwan, South Korea and Canada, and EMV L1 PICC 3.0 test services in its laboratory in South Korea using NI’s Contactless Test Station and the MP500 TCL3.
