PSoC®/PRoC™ BLE Regulatory (FCC/CE/SRRC/IC/MIC/KC) Certification - KBA218786
Where can I get the software for regulatory certification?
The software is not released publicly. Contact your Cypress distributor/ Cypress FAE or create a technical support case to get it. Generally, the MTK or firmware for regulatory certification can be used for regulatory certification.
Question: What are the requirements for FCC/CE/SRRC/IC/MIC/KC certification?
Answer: Generally, the regulatory certification needs to verify the frequency tolerance, transmitting power, occupied bandwidth, and spurious emission limits according to the jurisdiction: FCC (USA), CE (EU), SRRC (China), IC (Canada), MIC (Japan), and KC (Korea).
FCC/CE/SRRC/IC/MIC certification requires verifying the frequency offset and TX power of the Low (2402 MHz), Mid (2440 MHz), and High (2480 MHz) channels.
KC certification requires verifying the frequency offset and TX power of all 40 channels.
Question: Should I design the UART port or button in hardware for regulatory certification?
Answer: The MTK needs the UART port to receive commands from the PC. The regulatory certification firmware uses the button to switch the command.
Question: What should I do to amend the frequency offset?
Answer: The ECO do not need external matching capacitors because the PSoC/PRoC BLE chip already has it inside. See AN95089 for ECO selection and tuning techniques.
