1.c. Government Regulations for Radio Devices
Warning about radio regulations: The Wixel has not been tested or certified for conformance with any radio regulations, and the Wixel is shipped with only a bootloader that does not use the radio. The 2.4 GHz band is relatively unrestricted in many parts of the world, but it is your responsibility to comply with your local regulations if you program your Wixel to use its wireless capabilities.
The Wixel is a multi-purpose development platform, not a finished product, and it is not certified by the FCC or any other government agency. It is your responsibility to follow local regulations and use good engineering practices when developing, installing, and configuring apps for your Wixel. The Wixel has a low-power radio and uses the reference PCB antenna suggested by TI, so we expect typical applications developed for the Wixel to comply with FCC rules, but the Wixel is not intended for integration into other products. If you are contemplating adding Wixel-like features to your product, we recommend that you integrate the CC2511 IC directly using documentation from TI; any software developed for the Wixel should work on any other CC2511-based platform. For more information on the requirements for operating a 2.4 GHz device, see TI Application Note 032: SRD regulations for license-free transceiver operation in the 2.4 GHz band.
