In this paper, we present a new system architecture for an automated Near Field Communication (NFC) interoperability test and debug system. The increasing availability of NFC-enabled devices and the resulting amount of NFC applications require new methods for interoperability testing and debugging in order to reduce costs. We combine already existing state-of- the-art interoperability test systems and the know-how of manual debugging methods to develop a new automated NFC interoperability test and debug system architecture. We analyze the main components of state-of-the-art test systems, define new requirements for the new system architecture and evaluated the feasibility. Our new architecture significantly reduces the time and cost of developing and certifying new NFC-enabled devices.
