Level 2 payment terminal compliance test tool

Get your product approved faster

The payment market is evolving rapidly. The ability to bring solutions to market efficiently is the key to providing customers with state-of-the-art products, ensuring seamless contact and contactless transactions, and safeguarding security for end-users. In order for solutions to be approved quickly and efficiently, kernel developers, mPOS and terminal manufacturers must ensure that they comply with the latest specifications.

The most comprehensive and qualified test tool

With strong experience in the payments industry and an in-depth knowledge of the relevant standardisation bodies, FIME eveloped EVAL to ensure the complete validation of your products.

EVAL allows you to validate the compliance of your terminals against the most extensive range of payment schemes available in the market: American Express, Discover Network, eftpos, EMVCo, Gemalto, JCB, MasterCard,SoftCard, Star Network, UnionPay and Visa specifications.

Components and test suite

EVAL is built around three main components

  • EVAL platform: software engine driving a card simulator.
  • EVAL libraries: different libraries which fully meet authorities’ requirements and address terminal application kernel interoperability.
  • EVAL box: enables communications with contact and contactless terminals.

EVAL automation module
FIME has developed an add-on module to EVAL to automate the test session and save a considerable amount of time. EVAL is therefore controlled by an external application which is linked to the terminal and a host simulator during the test process.
