Radio module certification reduces time-to-market
u-blox's ELLA‑W1 and ODIN-W2 short range radio module series have been certified by the National Communications Commission (NCC), an independent statutory agency regulating the information, communications and broadcasting industry in Taiwan.
This Taiwan NCC certification offers greater flexibility to manufacturers of devices requiring both Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. Thanks to the certification, u-blox’s customers can minimise the certification process of their end products, reducing time-to-market by 3-6 months.
The ELLA-W1 is a host-based multiradio module series and ODIN-W2 is a stand-alone multiradio gateway module. They both provide support for dual-band WiFi and dual-mode Bluetooth and can be used in a broad range of applications such as smart energy, healthcare, manufacturing and telematics.
Ming Chiang, Country Manager, u-blox Taiwan, commented: “Following a comprehensive certification procedure, we are glad to announce that our ELLA-W1 and ODIN-W2 short range radio module series have been approved for use in Taiwan. In a rapidly growing market, time-to-market is the key to customers’ success and we are excited that with the NCC certificate to our short range radio module series, we can help the customers minimise their product certification process and reduce their total development costs.”
