cDASY6 V6.4 is now fully approved by all regulators including the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), making demonstration of compliance more automated and much faster. It is also fully compatible with the upcoming IEC 62209-U standard and capable to test any IoT (Internet-of-Things) device. The key new features and improvements are:
In addition, the new release provides many other improvements making the software more flexible and easier to use. Feedback, as always, is greatly welcomed!
Scanning time in cDASY6 has been dramatically reduced thanks to the MotherScan concept. A MotherScan consists of measuring the phantom surface over the whole measurable area. This information is reused during the area and zoom scans to limit the number of required surface detection points. Within cDASY6 V6.4, the measured surface is now registered to the Computer Aided Design (CAD) model of the phantom which makes the MotherScan quicker, more accurate and more robust
cDASY6 Release V6.4 supports several new phantoms that will ease SAR compliance testing of wireless devices, including any IoT devices, intended for usage at non-standard body/head locations (e.g., in-front of face, at extremities):
A more detailed measurement procedure as well as validation results and uncertainty table are available in the Application Note
SAR distribution of a device measured in the Face-Down phantom. The maximum absorption is located in the forehead region.
cDASY6 Release V6.4 features automatic check of the zoom scan grid resolution according to the latest requirements of the IEC 62209 amendment and insures that all assessments are within the standard DASY uncertainty. cDASY6 computes the radius and decay of the measured SAR distribution and verifies that the specified measurement grid meets the standard requirements and recommends the repletion of the measurement with a finer grid if needed.
cDASY6 Release V6.4 is the first software that offers a convenient tool for SAR compliance testing that can monitor the transmitted averaged power over a 6-minute interval. This feature can be enabled after a standard area scan or zoom scan. The software will monitor continuously the measured SAR at a fixed location. The TX factor and 1g/10g peak averaged SAR are computed automatically once the time-averaged SAR scan is completed.
A more detailed measurement procedure as well as validation results and the corresponding uncertainty table are available in the Application Note
Monitoring of the SAR readings at a fixed location for a device with power control algorithm enabled.
Fast Scans can be used to assess the 1g and 10g peak averaged SAR in less than 10s if a similar absorption pattern has been already measured. In cDASY6 Release V6.4, the algorithm used to compare absorption patterns has been greatly improved when measuring modulated or low amplitude signals. A KDB inquiry has been submitted for the acceptance of this novel feature by FCC.
