In IEC62209-2, a tablet form factor portable computer test configuration is described in Figure 7(b), for which SAR should be separately assessed with the following:</span></p>
<ol>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">each surface.</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">the separation distances positioned against the flat phantom that corresponds to the intended use as specified by the manufacturer.</span></li>
</ol>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">If the intended use is not specified in the user instructions, the device shall be tested directly against the flat phantom in all usable orientations. If we add an instruction in the user manual that warns the user to keep the tablet at least 15mm from his body when using it, can SAR be measured based on this 15mm separation distance to flat phantom?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Your question is very interesting, especially when the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measurement for R&amp;TTE CE Mark Declaration of Conformity (DoC) is compared to the requirements of the FCC. The difference between the CE Mark requirement and the FCC is that the FCC creates rules, regulations, and policies by which devices such as tablets are certified. Provided your company complies with the existing FCC rules, regulations and policies with respect to SAR measurements, you have met the intent of the rules. However, with R&amp;TTE DoC, it is the manufacturer's responsibility to determine the use of the device, and to identify and apply the appropriate SAR standard that is necessary to assure full SAR compliance.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">We recommend performing the SAR testing at 0mm for head and body SAR at 2.0 W/Kg. If the device passes, you have met the SAR IEC62209-2 compliance requirement. If the device fails, the following should be considered:</span></p>
<ol>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Redesign the transmitting antenna so that the measured power density of the radiating antenna is redirected in such a way that it will comply at the measured distance.</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Reduce the power until the tablet passes, then</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Determine compliance at 5mm, 10mm, and 15mm.</span></li>
</ol>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">As the manufacturer, you have to determine what is reasonable. The head and body SAR limit is 2.0 W/kg, and the limb SAR limit is 4 W/kg. Tablets are typically placed on one's lap, or in one's arms when used, with only clothing between the tablet and one's limb, but are generally not flat on the body or on the head when in transmit mode. If SAR testing is performed at 0mm, and it passes 2.0 W/kg head and body SAR, then there is no need for further limb SAR testing.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">If, on the other hand, the tablet does not comply at 2.0 W/Kg head and body, it is then important to know at what distance the tablet will pass head and body SAR. After this distance is determined, say 5mm, you will then proceed to limb SAR testing. With limb SAR, it is important for the tablet to pass the 4 W/kg limb SAR limit at 0mm tablet-to-limb spacing because of the method of use expressed above. If the device passes 4 W/Kg at 0mm tablet-to-limb spacing but must be placed at 5mm to pass 2 W/kg head and body SAR, this may be reasonable to you as the manufacturer.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">You and your SAR laboratory may have to perform a pass/fail distance research analysis in order to determine appropriate compliant passing configurations in order to justify that your device is safe from an exposure to RF.</span></p>

What is the FCC's current position on using this methodology?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">The FCC's current policy is to accept the signal/antenna substitution method in accordance with TIA-603-C only. Though you may find certification reports in the FCC's database that contain the pre-calibrated signal/antenna substitution method, the FCC does not recognize this method. To summarize the pre-calibrated field method, it is performed using a signal generator to radiate a signal swept over a particular frequency range of interest. The signal is then recorded at a single point in space at a distance corresponding to the measurement distance required for compliance testing. A table of data collected from the site "pre-calibration" is then to be used to replace specific substitution procedures as described in TIA-603-C, Sections 2.2.12(j) through (l) and/or 2.2.17(c) and (d). The signal/antenna substitution method is required under the following conditions:</span></p>
<ol>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">FCC 47CFR §2.1055 requires spurious radiated emissions to be measured from a device's control circuits, RF circuitries including IFs and voltage control oscillators, power cables, and cabinets under normal operating conditions.</span></li>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Licensed device(s) require measurement to determine the maximum transmitter output power and conducted spurious noise; when such device(s) are designed with integral antennas, the signal/antenna substitution method is used to measure the aforementioned parameters.</span></li>
</ol>

Notably, the Order eliminates the requirement that TV bands devices that incorporate geo-location and database access must also include sensing technology to detect the signals of TV stations and low-power auxiliary service stations (wireless microphones). It also requires wireless microphone users who seek to register in the TV bands databases to certify that they will use all available channels from 7 through 51 prior to requesting registration. Requests to register in the database will be public, thus allowing interested parties to weigh in on any given request.</span></p>

In particular, the Order reserves two vacant UHF channels for wireless microphones and other low power auxiliary service devices in all areas of the country. It also maintains a reasonable separation distance between TV White Space device and wireless microphone usage permitted to be registered in the database</span></p>

Is such a lamp/switching power supply considered RF lighting under FCC Part 18?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">The device you describe is a Part 15B device. Lighting devices that use a switching power supply operating over 9000 cycles per second to convert 60 Hz AC to DC, or that contain digital logic (as defined in Section 15.3), are regulated under Part 15. Verification would be the appropriate equipment authorization procedure. With RF, pulsing or non-rectified RF signals are applied within the device directly to non-gas lighting components (LED-incandescent), resulting in a Part 15 unintentional device.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Part 18 RF lighting devices use RF frequency to excite a gas to cause the light by applying RF inside the device, locally to electrodes or locally inductively coupled to resonant gas cavities. Part 18 requires that consumer equipment of this type is subject to either Declaration of Conformity or Certification, and industrial (non-consumer) equipment requires Verification.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">On the other hand, if this were an RF lighting device under the rule FCC Part 18.203(a), the device would have to be authorized as consumer ISM equipment unless otherwise specified under either the Declaration of Conformity or Certification procedure prior to use or marketing.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Note that you as the manufacturer, and/or your test lab may choose which authorization procedure to use (DoC or Certification) for consumer RF lighting devices. Each route requires different labeling, but you the manufacturer may decide the route to compliance.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Note that if the device only requires Verification, the specific labeling requirements for this must be followed; the DoC or Certification requirements will not apply.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Radiated tests may be omitted when the operational frequencies of the RF lighting device are less than 1.705 MHz, based on the table in FCC Section 18.309. This is because RF lighting devices only require radiated measurements greater than 30 MHz, and the table in FCC Section 18.309 does not require measurements of radiated emissions if the frequencies are less than 1.705 MHz.</span></p>

Is voice scrambling going to be allowed for a GMRS device?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">The FCC released a NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE MAKING AND MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER ON RECONSIDERATION on June 1, 2010 and released it for public comment on June 7, 2010. Several changes are proposed, but to address your question, voice scrambling would not be allowed. The existing wording in the FCC's rule, Section 95.181(e) states that all messages must be in plain language "without codes or hidden meaning", this wording leaves some to believe that voice scrambling is allowed, when it is not.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Furthermore, Section 95.183(a)(4) prohibits a station operator from communicating "coded messages or messages with hidden meanings". Voice scrambling by a GMRS device is a method of encoding a message so that the message's meaning (content) is hidden from operators of certain other GMRS devices. Therefore, it is prohibited to use any type of technique such as scrambling, encryption, inversion, or masking that hides, obscures, or confuses the voice message such that it cannot be readily understood by any listener with any GMRS device designed to receive the transmitted emission type. See Section 95.631(a), (e), and (f) for permitted emission types and emission limits.</span></p>

<ol>
<li><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Add new emission designators to our existing frequency bands.</span></li>

<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">For years the FCC has accepted the use of pre-calibrated data for unwanted spurious emissions and maximum radiated power measurements; however it was recently announced through its KDB that this measurement method will no longer be acceptable as of January 1, 2011. The pre-calibrated data substitution method uses a signal generator to sweep the frequency range of interest and measure each point in space that corresponds to the FCC's rule part limit distance. A tabular set of data represents the pre-calibration of the site. The pre-calibrated data is used to replace substitution procedures in Sections 2.2.12 (j) through (l) and/or 2.2.17 (c) and (d) of the TIA-603-C standard.</span></p>

The FCC is willing to consider alternative test methods to EIA/TIA-603-C if the C63 accredited Standards Committee or others develop alternative methods.</span></p>

This transceiver also contains an FM receiver. We would like to depopulate the FM transceiver by applying for a Class II Permissive Change. Is this allowed under the FCC's policy?</span></p>

However, if the depopulation is not significant, i.e. only minor circuitry removal for the receiver portion, peripheral circuits, or some other digital function, a Class II Permissive Change might be possible. To be sure, you must provide details of the depopulation to your TCB or directly to the FCC. Other examples that may be approved under the same FCC ID, and that could be depopulated and approved under a Class II Permissive Change, such as a base station cordless phone with or without a digital display (for answering machine function), may be found in the permissive change policy at<a href="http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/kdb/GetAttachment.html?id=29296.">http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/kdb/GetAttachment.html?id=29296.</a></span></p>

How do we measure radiated emissions from an unintentional radiator and what detector do we use?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSI 63.4 2005 is the standard used to measure radiated emissions. The radiated emission limits for unintentional radiators are specified in FCC Section 15.109. There are both average and peak limits for radiated emissions above 1 GHz, and Section 15.35 specifies the measurement detector function and bandwidth to be used when performing the required measurements.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Above 1 GHz, CISPR 16-1-1 defines two modes of the average detector, namely linear and logarithmic. For radiated emissions measurements at frequencies above 1 GHz, the appropriate average detector is the linear average detector as defined in Clause 6 of CISPR 16-1-1.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">There are a number of different types of average detectors on the market today for performing EMI measurements.</span></p>

We do not sell or provide the external antenna as an accessory. We need to certify our device under FCC Part 22 and 24; what tests are required?</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">ANSWER:&nbsp;</span></strong><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">First, you have to consult Parts 22 and 24 of the FCC's rules and regulations, EIA/TIA- 603-C and the FCC's most recent "Permit But Ask List" dated 10/15/2010. Licensed devices, such as 3G routers with integral antenna(s), are tested with the integral antenna. However, a removable antenna(s) is tested at the antenna port. The following tests should be performed:</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">1. Antenna conducted power at the antenna connector should be measured if the internal antenna can be removed; if it cannot be removed and then measure EIRP/ERP.</span></p>
<ul style="padding-right: 40px; padding-left: 40px; list-style: none; color: #333333; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px;">
<li style="padding-left: 15px; line-height: 22px; color: black; background-position: 0px 6px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;"><span style="color: #15a5d6; font-style: italic; font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">If the device is in the mobile category, that is, it is not a licensed base station or cellular repeater or a device which receives its own license to operate, then measure ERP/EIRP on both the internal and external antenna port using the highest allowed antenna gain. For FCC Parts 22, 24 and 27 devices, measure the ERP/EIRP maximums for non-base station, non-cellular repeater type devices. Consult FCC rule Sections 22.913, 24.232 and 27.50.</span></li>
<li style="padding-left: 15px; line-height: 22px; color: black; background-position: 0px 6px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;"><span style="color: #15a5d6; font-style: italic; font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">As a manufacturer you are relieved of the obligation to ensure that your device does not exceed the ERP/EIRP limits by saying you do not supply the antenna. The FCC expects that a maximum antenna gain restriction will apply to the device.</span></li>
<li style="padding-left: 15px; line-height: 22px; color: black; background-position: 0px 6px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;"><span style="color: #15a5d6; font-style: italic; font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">For Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE), if the device is not licensed at the time of installation, then you must provide MPE calculations and possibly MPE measurements with the certification application. In order to do this you would have to limit the gain of any external antenna used for the device, and the maximum gain would be listed on the grant. The only way to avoid performing MPE is to demonstrate during the certification process that you will not sell the device to anyone who does not obtain a license to operate it. If the device is sold to someone who does not obtain a license, thus operating under the license of a base station, for example, CPE equipment, then MPE and a maximum stated antenna gain must be provided at the time of device certification.</span></li>

Measure antenna spurious power at the antenna connector, including spurious and harmonics as well as band edges.</span></p>

The resulting efficient use of airwaves will help ensure that America leads the global wireless revolution and enjoys the resulting jobs and economic growth.</span></p>
<p style="padding: 4px 13px 10px; color: #333333; font-size: 15px; line-height: 20px; font-family: Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: black;">Specifically, the NPRM proposes that wireless broadband providers have equal access to television broadcast frequencies that could become available in spectrum auctions. The Notice seeks comment on establishing new allocations for both fixed and mobile wireless services in the TV broadcast bands. The Notice also explores enabling TV stations to voluntarily combine their operations and distinct programming lineups on a single TV channel. The Notice requests comment on the proposed rules that would enable TV broadcasters to opt to share channels by further tapping the technical capabilities that became available following the nation's historic transition to digital television in 2009. Finally, the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeks comment on steps that would improve TV reception on the VHF channels (2-13), such as by increasing transmitting power and establishing minimum performance standards for indoor antennas. These improvements could provide better VHF reception for consumers and encourage broadcasters to use valuable VHF channels in the future.&nbsp;<a style="outline-style: none; color: #01abd5; cursor: pointer;" href="http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=uoiicjbab&amp;et=1104095805628&amp;s=15523&amp;e=001fa1x6AhqkuXuBNLSmCcr0iscdakbnSI2BMPMor-WbtyoNpYaXmirgVOvkD5YzrOFE0gOKkmkajRYW7hR2-bVNqBCYhYEm6LzheHhruUXBHJ1mP8epaDhrOKNsaUaw1aACt8YqvcyZy6S1yLdiAScH40hitLoKOA6jUfINuNQdeR6lHI-uootbQ==">Link</a></span></p>

Citing past achievements such as Wi-Fi and PCS that grew out of experimental licensing, the FCC proposed to overhaul its experimental licensing rules to streamline the process by which new devices and technologies can move from R&amp;D to deployment. The FCC proposed the following three types of program licenses:</span></p>
