Intel® AX210 & BE200 Test Modes for Radio Certification Testing

My company is integrating AX210 & BE200 wireless modules into a host device, along with other types of radio device. As such we need to carry out certification testing with radios operating with specific operating modes, channel bandwidths, channel frequencies, data rates, RU configurations etc.

 

Are there any test tools or test modes to set the operating modes for compliance testing? Do Intel share these tools/ test modes?

 

I've seen similar questions in here that suggest you might, see:

Hello Mark_Bee,


Thank you for posting in Intel community Forum.


We do not have tools nor provide support for how to do wireless regulatory related tests or how to put Intel Wireless Adapters into testing mode.

 

You may try contacting a third party lab called Dekra directly and check if Dekra can help you with the desired testing. I will send you Dekra's information to the email address associated with your communities' user.

 

Please let me know if you have any concerns.



If you have questions, please let us know. Thank you.

Hello Michael,

 

I was able to check the previous post but the answer doesn't help me address the issue I am facing. So can you tell me how Intel sets the different operating configurations required to carry out regulatory testing of it's WiFi modules?

The operating modes listed below are quoted in an Intel test report as being the worst case for a radiated spurious emissions tests. I need to repeat this test to verify that after integration of Intel WiFi modules into a host device the host device meets regulatory requirements.

How does Intel set the operating modes below when performing it's own FCC radiated emissions testing?

 

802.11ax/be40, MCS0, Chain B - Channel 6F

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain A+B - Channel 40

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain A+B - Channel 52

802.11ax/be40, MCS0, Chain A+B - Channel 118

802.11ax/be80, MCS0, Chain A+B - Channel 155

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain B - Channel 1

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain A - Channel 113

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain A+B - Channel 117

802.11ax/be20, MCS0, Chain A - Channel 233

 

Thanks

The test report for the above testing says:

"The laptop computer was used to configure the EUT to continuously transmit at a specified output power using all different modes and modulation schemes, using the Intel proprietary tool DRTU."

 

So, the Intel proprietary tool DRTU is how you control the WiFi modules for test purposes, can I have a copy of the DRTU tool?

Hello Mark_Bee,


Thank you for the quick reply.


For the DRTU tool, you need to contact Dekra.

I already provided the contact details of Dekra in the email that I sent.

Please check my email and kindly contact Dekra for the certification.


If you have questions, please let us know. Thank you.
