  • Micropross Accessories


SW : Micropross ISO/IEC 10373-6 PCD RF Test Suite

Issue Details

Test Item : 
  • 7.1.1 PCD Field Strength
  • 7.1.4 Modulation Index and Waveform
We got the pass in calibration step, but got the fail result in measurement step.
Is it real DUT failure or Tool Problem?


  • Reference : ISO IEC FDIS 10373-6 Test methods Proximity cards(2016).
According to Standard Reference, the calibration step should be passed and measurement depend on DUT performance.
  • 7.1.1 PCD Field Strength
    • Hmax : Freq=19MHz, Vdc=3V
    • Hmin : Freq=13.56MHz, Vdc=6V(e.g. Class1)
  • 7.1.4 Modulation Index and Waveform
    • Freq=16.5MHz, Vdc=6V(e.g. Class1)
    • Other Freq(e.g. 13.56MHz /19MHz) are not mndatory
