The ISO/IEC 18000-3 standard deals with the Parameters for Air Interface Communications at 13.56 MHz. It defines three modes. This thesis focuses only on mode 1. Mode 1 is based on ISO/IEC 15693 that is adopted to define the way RFID "Contactless Integrated Vicinity Cards" communicate. It is commonly adopted by RFID manufacturers to be their guideline for high frequency (HF) RFID transponders.As ISO/IEC 15693 has been widely adopted, the conformance test is important as it is the first step to evaluate the interoperability of the HF passive RFID products manufactured by different venders.In this thesis, the development of a conformance test platform for ISO/IEC 18000-3 Mode 1 Passive RFID is described. This conformance test platform is implemented with National Instruments (NI) LabVIEW 8.5 and the LabVIEW FPGA module. It consists of two parts: (1) An FPGA and host based ISO-18000 part 3 mode 1 conformed transceiver system (reader). This system is developed with the NI 5640R FPGA development board to realize the signal acquisition and processing in real-time. It supports all the mandatory and optional commands defined in ISO 18000-3 mode 1. (2) A host based offline data measurement and testing platform. This platform is developed with LabVIEW 8.5 on the host PC to perform further measurement and test for the baseband waveform data acquired by the system in part (1).This conformance test platform implemented is reusable, reconfigurable and can be customer defined within the parameters of the standard.
