2.4GHz Radio Standard Update Published
December 6th, 2016
EN 300 328 is the European harmonized standard and compliance requirement for wideband transmission systems operating in the 2.4GHz ISM band. This is the compliance standard for products like WiFi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee transmitters that operate in the 2.4GHz band. The latest revision of the standard “V2.1.1” was released as a published ETSI standard and is available for manufacturers to use for their conformity assessment.
Some of the changes in the new revision include the inclusion of “Receiver Blocking” as a test and requirement. There are also changes to the minimum number of hopping frequencies for non-adaptive FHSS systems. The update also provides an alternative test method for measuring Power Spectral Density. A copy of the new standard is available on the ETSI website.
Note that this standard is not yet published in the RE Directive Official Journal but we anticipate it will be soon.
