Does the Edison have FCC modular approval for intentional radiators and/or equivalent approvals for other markets, or will it in the near future? Most IoT-centric SOMs do, e.g. the http://www.digi.com/products/wireless-wired-embedded-solutions/solutions-on-module/connectcore/conne... Digi ConnectCard. Modular approval certainly affects the value proposition when "productizing."
Yes it does, the Edison have modular approval for international radiators FCC part 15C. Also Murata does not have FCC approval, we are using their module (BCM module) and we have approval on the complete product (Edison).
Are the FCC Grants mentioned in this thread still available? I receive a "file not found" error when I attempt to download the .zip file in the Sept. 16, 2014 post.
In addition, I would be grateful is someone could point me to reference information to understand the limits of FCC certification as it relates to human safety. I plan to propose using the Edison in a research trial where it would be carried by volunteers, and my grant application requires a discussion of risk. I would like to cite the applicable FCC certification. A document at the following link appears to say the module is approved for use with a minimum separation distance of 5mm from the body for the low power setting, but nothing in the FCC Grant specifically links it to the Edison. http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/fcc2ab8znd1dtsgrantedisonus.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/edison/sb/fcc2ab8znd1dtsgrantedisonus.pdf
Lastly, I have seen discussions about the Curie that Intel sought FCC approval for use in health care settings (Hospitals). Was Edison approved in the same way?
