The AW-CM276NF implements the NXP 88W8997 (formerly by Marvell) Reference Design, therefore the certificates of the 88W8997 apply to the AW-CM276NF as well. The processes of certifying radio equipment vary from one region to the other. This article concentrates on the certification of the AW-CM276NF to be used in combination with the antennas listed below in the following regions: USA, Canada, European Economic Area (EEA) with Switzerland, India as well as Japan. With regards to end-devices, these certifications are to be understood as pre-certifications. Depending on the country in question, end devices might still need to undergo final testing and certification of the overall product.

Pre-certification is:

Pre-certification measurements are carried out by an accredited laboratory. Pre-certification of the AW-CM276NF with selected Wi-Fi accessories allows customers to use combinations of those devices in a compliant way and provides additional trust that the pre-certified device combinations will not impede final certification of the respective end-devices.

Pre-certification is not:

Pre-certification is not related to the Wi-Fi Alliance and the “WiFi CERTIFIED” logo found on the packaging of many Wi-Fi capable products.
