Design Validation

 

Operating Volume of NFC Devices

 

The operating volume defines the three-dimensional space in which an NFC-enabled device running in poll mode is able to communicate with an NFC listener.

To optimize transfer within, the strength of the magnetic field must be sufficiently high. In addition, the ability of the reader, aka "Poller" in NFC Forum terms to detect a card or so-called "Listener" is key. It must differentiate a weak signal from noise. This is called "sensitivity" or "receptivity".

 
 
 

Design & Validate the Reader´s Operating Volume Faster

Design Validation Center together with the calibrated  CL Development line hardware provides measuring means for validating an NFC operating volume. Thus, designing it according to the requirements of the application is a lot faster with:

  • 2D and 3D visualization of the magnetic field
    (strength and direction)
  • Measurement of reader sensitivity

 By help of:

  • Unique 3D Vector Field Probe
  • Flexible robot interface
  • NFC Oscilloscope for live analog signal analysis
