PARTNER NEWS: Cilab’s new ci230 high-speed testing suite is “a tool that has been missing for years,” Renke Bienert, senior principal engineer at NXP’s worldwide customer application and support team in Hamburg, has told NFC World.
“I would give this product a ten out of ten,” Bienert said. “It is quick, easy to use and gives you all the debug information you need.
“I am totally happy with my choice and actively recommend it to my customers.”

“While there are very good tools available for certification testing from many vendors, what has been missing is a debug and test tool that makes it easy to identify the root cause of any problems,” Bienert explained.
“Before you can fix something, you need to know the cause of the problem. Cilab’s ci230 lets you quickly and easily find your bug and fix it.”
“Engineers can then test, debug and make adjustments early and often in the development cycle. That way, they can be sure a new product will achieve a pass before they send it off for certification — and avoid wasting time and money submitting a completed product that doesn’t then pass first time.”
Before deciding to buy a Cilab ci230 to support his customers, Bienert conducted an extensive evaluation of all the options on the market using a modified device under test that he set up to deliberately produce an error.
“All the testing products correctly identified that there was an error
