Malaga, Spain, December 8th, 2010 — Product manufacturers are able to certify their
NFC implementations now.

AT4 wireless has worked in a close partnership with the NFC Forum for the implementation of the NFC Forum Digital Protocol test cases in its RIDER NFC test solution. The AT4 wireless team has been intensively working during the last months to be officially approved by the NFC Forum designated Validation House at the beginning of the Certification Program.

The NFC Forum has verified that AT4 wireless RIDER NFC one box test solution correctly implements the NFC Forum Digital Protocol and Tag Types Operation test specifications among other important validation requirements, such as conformance testing security requirements, conformance user interface and results reporting capabilities, etc.

In addition to this, AT4 wireless R&D team is working to integrate the future NFC Forum Analogue RF test requirements, expected to be included in next certification waves, in the same test tool that has been approved for this Certification Program. This will prevent users from investing in another hardware platforms to support future RF and Protocol NFC test requirements given that RIDER provides a one box solution to the vendors and test laboratories.

“We are proud to provide NFC vendors and Test Laboratories with the first and only approved test solution for the NFC Forum Certification Program” commented Luís Fernando Martínez, AT4 wireless General Manager.

“We have a strong commitment to NFC Forum, and we have been working together to make our test solution be available and approved, starting today, with the launch of the NFC Forum Certification Program.

NFC is a quite exciting technology that will create new business models and interesting opportunities
in the Mobile Market”.

“At the NFC Forum, we understand that a certification program is only as robust and effective as its test solutions,” said Paula Berger, Executive Director of the NFC Forum.

“AT4 wireless has provided us with not only a world-class test tool in RIDER NFC, but also the in-depth expertise to help ensure that the our certification program is a complete success.”
