Mobile, Contactless Payments Fundamentals – A Deep Dive designed for chip, card, terminal and mobile handset manufacturers 

In this course we cover  the fundamental technologies for Mobile and contactless payments based on EMV standards.  We also include a discussion of antenna design and how to solve issues like ESD, common with modern day antenna design.  The course also covers various levels of testing for Mobile, contactless and EMV certification.

The course looks at EMV, Contactless NFC and Mobile Payment systems and technologies. It is a hands on, technical workshop that analyze the behavior of an EMV (for both contact and contactless) transactions using a state of the art test environment. We describe uses of the latest test tool methodologies to achieve certification.   The workshop covers standards, protocols as well as implementation strategies. You will learn the EMV transaction’s flows and how it impacts the issuing and acquiring systems. You will also learn the standards for contactless NFC transactions and mobile payment components. An important part of the mobile and contactless payment is the design and use of the contactless controller and the antenna. These are discussed including issues and remedies.

Coursework includes card payments, EMV fundamentals, contactless architecture, mobile design, provisioning and migration strategies for the stakeholders. The course is both theory and hands on with practical demonstrations using the latest technology tools and products.
