Advanced secure chip testing provider, FIME, has expanded its activity in China through distribution partner Flash Technology.
The two years-old partnership, which has seen Flash Technology support local manufacturers with FIME’s automated radio frequency (RF) test bench, will now deliver additional mobile and near field communication (NFC) consulting services and testing products to Chinese mobile handset, secure chip, payment terminal and secure element manufacturers.
“This partnership enables us to be in closer proximity to our customers in China, with a wider product portfolio to validate NFC-capable devices and contact and contactless terminals,” said Arnaud Peninon, director of FIME Asia.
“Chinese manufacturers can take advantage of FIME’s international expertise and NFC Forum qualified test tools, combined with the regional knowledge and presence of Flash Technology to deliver support in local languages.
“As a market that is growing rapidly, certification and interoperability testing is essential to ensure the sustainability, stability and international interoperability of the mobile and NFC ecosystem. Convenient and cost-effective access to internationally recognised test equipment and services is key to ensuring successful qualifications and product developments.
“China is an expansive market in terms of its size and growth potential, so we are delighted to be achieving such success in collaboration with Flash Technology.”
