Issue Details

I am using the EMVCo Analog PCD test suite, and I would like to change the default value of the FSDI setting from the default value of 0x08 to 0x0A. I looked in the test suite configuration and I could not find somewhere to change this setting.

How can I do this?

Solution

The EMVCo PCD Analog test suite does not provide the user with the option to change the FSDI value. 

The EMVCo Contactless Terminal test specification defines the frame trail to be used when performing analog tests on EMVCo PCDs. This specification states that the RATS value sent by the PCD under test will be E0 80. Such an RATS is only possible with FSDI = 8.

A PCD which is not sending E0 80 for RATS is not compliant with the EMVCo analog test specification for payment terminals.
