Topic: FCC Certified BLE Chip with Integrated Antenna Recommendations? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi - I've been working with the Arduino 101 since I want to make a 'very very small' motion sensor (IMU) with BLE capability. But it looks like I need to go through $$$ FCC/CE certification since it requires an external antenna.

Can anyone recommend a certified BLE chip to use when prototyping with an Arduino and sketches?

The BMD-350 looks like a great chip, but I'm not sure how I can get this running with an Arduino Board / MicroController (I'm still very new with embedded systems and would like to prototype with an Arduino).

Any recommendations/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

I think you are a bit confused about FCC certification. That can only occur with your finished product, including the production software. And beware, if the software is changed after the certification, it must be done again. Not cheap and may take quite a while waiting for a certifying lab to get around to your product.

Bits and pieces of electronics are not FCC certifiable.
