TraceCase is the small and handy test solution for discreetly tracing contactless transactions under real-life conditions. The powerful TraceCase software allows analyzing and debugging in order to create a reliable NFC ecosystem.
Together with TraceCase Toolbox the user receives a command-line based control interface to operate TraceCase remotely. This facilitates the integration into an existing test environment.
Technical consultants & application engineers for field trials and pilot projects, for example, in the area of:
Perfect for tracing in the field
Powerful for analyzing in-house or by a third party
On request, TraceCase is also available as TraceCase fit, a customized and even more inconspicuous version hidden in a smartphone case.
Sniffing into NFC Communication
Whether mobile payments at the POS, or access control
in public transport or in buildings: Wherever NFC technology is used, errors may occur. In order to solve these
communication problems in the field, COMPRION has
developed TraceCase, a mobile NFC sniffer that comes
with a powerful analyzing software.
TraceCase in the Lab
While TraceCase is operated manually by smartphone
in the field, TraceCase Toolbox expands the capabilities
for the development lab. Using a command-line interface
especially facilitates the integration into an existing test
environment. Thus, TraceCase can be operated by remote
control, and the level of automation can be increased.
Analyzing Analog & Digital Signals
Using the powerful TraceCase Viewer software, the recorded data can be analyzed in-house or by a third party.
Not only digital but also analog signals are displayed and
analyzed. TraceCase Toolbox converts the traced data
both into plain, easy understandable text (PDF) and into a
file format ideally suited for further processing (XML).
