Authorized Test Labs


The function of these Test Labs is to provide an independent assessment of the interoperability of an IrDA product. In addition, Test Labs may also provide services and consulting to resolve design problems when they occur. It is up to each Test Lab to set their fees for the services provided.

The primary responsibility of Test Labs is:

  • To provide testing services to assure IrDA interoperability and compliance.
  • To perform the Interop tests and if authorized perform full compliance tests necessary to verify reference products.
  • To present the Qualified PRoduct  certificate to products that pass the tests as defined by IrDA.
  • Report successful products to the IrDA office for registration.

In providing the IrDA Interop testing services, Test Lab ensures that:

  • The tests, procedures and processes conducted are the most up to date as defined by IrDA and that they are an advocate for the end-user in conducting the tests.
  • IrDA policies and procedures are complied with.
  • Tools and equipment are available for conducting the tests.
Other services may also be provided related to IrDA such as consulting and troubleshooting. This is the independent decision of the individual Test Lab. Independent Test Lab Locations that can assist in the validation of product qualification are:
