The number of wireless devices using technologies such as WLAN, Wifi, Zigbee or Bluetooth has grown rapidly over the past years. The EU has changed the ETSI EN 300 328 standard, affecting the wideband transmitters operating in the 2.4GHz band, mandatory for market access into Europe.
ETSI EN 300 328 V2.1.1 was adopted in Nov 2016. Data transmission equipment operating in the 2.4GHz ISM band and using wide band modulation techniques are affected due to the standard update.
Common applications for transmission are Wi-Fi, Zigbee and Bluetooth.
Updating from the previous V1.8.1/V1.9.1 to this new V2.1.1, the requirements for medical device are deleted, and receiver blocking becomes an essential test item as well as there are some limit updates for certain tests.
Receiver Blocking is a measure of the ability of the equipment to receive a wanted signal on its operating channel without exceeding a given degradation in the presence of an unwanted signal (blocking signal) on frequencies other than those of the operating band.
