Here are the steps to change the category of your DUT in the NFC Forum Analog test suite with MPManager 3

1. Open the NFC Forum Analog test suite in MPManager 3

2. Open the Ixit configuration tab in the ICS/IXIT Configuration menu

3. In part 5 : Analog Information for Testing Universal and Reader Devices,
write A; B or C depending on the category of the DUT you are using. The categories are described in the NFC Forum specification and depends on the size of the NFC Coil of your DUT.



Depending on the antenna size category selected and indicated in the IXIT tab of the test solution, 
load modulation amplitude limits values will now be taken into account for the pass criteria of the Load modulation amplitude tests.
