WiFi module questions
#1
Does the WiFi module have FCC/CE certification? The product page isn't clear on this.

Are there any plans to support a dual-band radio?

i do not see any markings on the module, although it may be exempt because it's not a powered consumer device.

Thanks dkryder.

This brings up a related question.

Has anybody tried to get FCC or CE approval for the Pine64 or Sopine board (and carrier)?

I wonder how much effort (and cost) is involved in producing a compliant end product.

well, both the pine64 2G & the sopine boards have the markings. perhaps the wifi module is considered part of those boards and thus do not need separate markings. as far as effort / cost a business just sends a product to a lab that does testing and pays them and then pays the fcc fees.

Thanks again, dkryder.

I suppose I should have looked more closely at my pine64 2G!

Smile I have been through this before, and the biggest cost isn't generally the testing fees, it's the diagnosis and re-work cost if the tests don't pass.
