Bluetooth Smart module comes with FCC-certification

Manufacturers embedding the compact and energy-saving wireless module in their products no longer need to have them specifically certified with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). AMBER wireless previously secured conformity for the European Union according to the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU (RED).


AMB2621 is a 2.4 GHz BLE radio module with dimensions of 11 x 8 x 1.8 mm, compliant with the Bluetooth Smart 4.2 Standard and is offered with or without an integrated antenna. Besides standard control with UART commands, smartphones or other devices can also be connected to the module using the “peripheral only” operating mode. This mode is recommended whenever the module itself does not initiate any connections (i.e. is only contacted from the outside) and the host requires a transparent interface as a cable replacement. This allows existing products to be expanded with a BLE interface without having to be adapted in advance. The AMB2621 thus avoids the need for expensive and interference-prone displays in the device – any mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, can be used as a display.


The certifications for the AMB2621 module demonstrate that not only are all directives fulfilled for the European market, but now also for the US and Canadian markets. OEMs can bring their devices to market quicker and without their own FCC certification process; a reference on the device label is sufficient, stating that FCC-ID R7TAMB2621 is integrated.
