COMPRION the world’s only supplier of all EMVCo conformance tests for POS terminals

Due to the recently granted validation of the EMVCo 3.0 PCD digital tests on UT³ Platform, the latter has become the only tool worldwide for all terminal conformance tests at EMVCo Level 1. Thereby it is possible to run all contactless (analog and digital) and contact-based (electrical and protocol) tests that are necessary for type approval on a single hardware. This combination is only available from COMPRION. EMVCo test labs accredited for terminal approval as well as terminal manufacturers preparing an approval benefit from that because they need to buy and operate only one system.

„We are pleased that terminal manufacturers such as Lecip Arcontia AB and EMVCo labs like Elitt, France, could increase their ROI by using the recently validated PCD digital tests. Most EMVCo labs already use UT³ Platform because it is the only system for electrical terminal tests worldwide,” explains Dr. Michael Jahnich, Director Contactless Test Solutions at COMPRION.

POS terminals will become even more future-proof with the new version EMCVo 3.0, which is expected to be activated April 2019. With that, EMVCo further improves interoperability of mobile payments by smartphones and wearables.
