The ANSI C63.10, a standard for Testing Unlicensed Wireless Devices by the American Standards Institute (ANSI) and Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) C63® was published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on Sept. 10, 2009. This new standard has in one document, procedures for testing many unlicensed wireless devices for compliance with the Rules and Regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Previously this information and testing procedures were scattered in various FCC rules, the FCC Knowledge database, ANSI C63.4 and various other FCC and IC publications. The FCC accepted the use of this new standard on November 25, 20090 (refer to FCC DA No. 09-2478) as an alternative to ANSI C63.4:2003.
Interference Technology recently invited a panel of experts, who were also a part of the working group on the standard, to weigh in on the implications ad the effects of the standard on testing and day to day lab operations. This group and panel included Mark Briggs, Principal Engineer at Elliott Labs, NTS Silicon Valley division. Click here to review the full article and panel discussion.
