Hi, my question relates to the spurious emissions test for the Radio Equipment Directive.
Quoting the Jetson OEM Compliance Guide, page 5:
“The host system manufacturer is responsible for compliance of the end product. Some of the Jetson module test data may be leveraged to satisfy compliance with the essential requirements of the radio spectrum (Article 3.2 of the Radio Equipment Directive) but partial testing (for example, spurious emissions) will still be required for the host + module.”
I am manufacturing a system using the Jetson TX2 and its onboard Wifi interface, and I am responsible for compliance of the end product. I am planning to leverage the NVIDIA DoC and certificate ID as mentioned on page 3 of the document. However, there remains a requirement to perform a Spurious Emissions Test on the system and I will take the system to a test laboratory to do this, which is also a Notified Body. The Notified Body will certify the product, so I am not able to self-certify on the sole basis of the wifi antenna having an equal or lower gain than the recommended one.
Please could I know what software needs to be run or what settings need to be applied to the Wifi interface to perform a suitable spurious emissions test. The other radio modems we use (4G, ISM, etc) have a “Test Mode” setting which causes the modem to transmit on relevant frequencies so that the test can be performed. I expect to find something similar on the TX2. If there is no such mode, please could you provide a method to create the same results.
I am asking a specific question which has not been answered in the following similar threads:
I also note what some of the posters state in the threads:
When Broadcom were approached for test software, on the advice of someone from Nvidia, they referred the person back to Nvidia as the vendor
Many posters have been directed to the OEM Compliance Guide, which does not explain the method
Any help from Nvidia would be much appreciated. I am also interested in hearing from system builders who have successfully certified by the same route.
Thanks in advance!
