Issue Details

With EMVco Analog Test Suites, when I Run a Laboratory Tools test and the measurements are out of range, the test will PASS anyway.


The tests from the Laboratory Tools section are different from other test suite Test Cases. The purpose of those test is to help the customer filling an EMVco form for the tool certification.

A Laboratory Tools Test Pass, only mean that the measurements have been done successfully, it’s not a verdict. The real verdict is provided by the EMVco form.
