    FCC certification BCM20737S - Limited approval = no certification?

    viloc_1229846

      Hello,

       

       

      We developed our product, HW and SW. We used BCM20737S. it was not at all easy. It was a long and difficult path (problem wirh library, ESD, etc....)

       

      So now we have a good product, it works and it is not expensive. Good module.

       

       

      Start with certification.

       

      Start with read all document, etc...

       

      Start with a  authorized company for FCC certification.

       

      Ok BCM20737S is not full certificated for FCC (because it has not metal shield).

       

       

       

      Wait response from american colleagues of authorized company...

       


      Result:
      For our product we need to do follow certification:

       

       

      CFR 47 part 15 Subpart B and

       

       

      CFR 47 Part 15.247, 15.205, 15.209 subpart C

       

       

       

       

       

      My questions:

       

       

      1 . is it true? Do we need all of these steps for obtain FCC certifcation?

       


      Our product is a normal portable product with a coin battery CR2450 and a simple half duplex serial comunication with module (module, two metal pin, diodes, capacitor and some resistance).

       

      2. Delta approval = no certification? because, we spent less to certify products with chipset
