All specifications are subject to change without notice

From a user's perspective, the SDC-PC10G is a PCMCIA radio module. From a regulatory and certification perspective, the SDC-PC10G is the SDC-CF10G Compact Flash module inserted into the SDC-PC2CF10 Compact Flash to PCMCIA adapter card.

Regulatory Certifications

All ETSI, FCC and MIC (formerly TELEC) certifications for the SDC-CF10G are applicable to the SDC-PC10G. Please review the SDC-CF10G certification information page for detailed information on existing certifications and how your organization can leverage them.

Wi-Fi Certification

Additionally, Summit has secured Wi-Fi Alliance certification for the SDC-PC10G as a "Dependent Product" of the SDC-CF10G.

Cisco Compatible Extensions

Summit is a member of the Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) program and has a direct license from Cisco for intellectual property relating to the various versions of the CCX specifications. Summit has submitted the SDC-PC10G to an authorized CCX test lab and has been found to be fully compliant with version 4 of the CCX specifications for application specific devices (ASDs). For those host devices which include the SDC-PC10G, the vendor may assert that their device incorporates a Cisco Compatible radio module.

Click HERE for verification of CCX compliance for this product.

Device vendors who are members of the CCX program may also choose to secure CCX compliance for their end device. When incorporating the SDC-PC10G into their product with the above software version, the vendor need not be a direct licensee for Cisco intellectual property. Rather, in this case the device vendor need only submit their SDC-PC10G enabled device for CCX compliance testing to the version 4 test plan for ASDs. By leveraging Summit's "pre-approved" software and by testing to the same plan, the vendor has a greater assurance that their actual testing will result in end device compliance. Summit will provide consultative services to those vendors who choose to pursue CCX compliance for their Summit-equipped devices.

RoHS Compliance

Like all Summit devices, the SDC-PC10G is fully compliant with European Union Directive 2011/65/EU or Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as per our Declaration of Compliance.

Wi-Fi Alliance

Summit has received an for the following standards: 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, WPA (both personal and enterprise), and WPA2/802.11i (both personal and enterprise). For those host devices which include the SDC-PC10G, the vendor may assert that their device incorporates a Wi-Fi Certified Embedded Client. The vendor need not be a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance to make this assertion but may not use the "Wi-Fi Certified" logo in conjunction with their device unless they themselves are a Wi-Fi Alliance member.

If the device vendor is a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, they may have WFA certification transferred to them only if they integrate the already-certified module into their device in a "hands off" manner; in other words, make no changes during integration that would impact the way in which the module operates. Summit will provide consultative services to those vendors who choose to pursue a Wi-Fi Alliance certification for their Summit-equipped devices.

If any additional information or guidance is required, please contact Summit's certification group via email or by telephone at 330.434.7929.
