Test Considerations for NFC Enabled Devices in Manufacturing

Near Field Communication (NFC) technology has gained meaningful traction in the market and it is poised to build global scale. The technology is especially easy to use and versatile enough to support a wide range of consumer and business applications, which heighten its promise. Though considered a relatively simple technology, the performance of an NFC subsystem can be impacted by subtle variations that may occur during device production. Therefore, manufacturers need to employ verification tests to ensure that NFC-enabled products work as intended. The purpose of this article is to explain why NFC testing is important and how to ensure the accuracy and effectiveness of such production tests so the technology can advance in the market in a manner that encourages its success.
