[sdiy] FCC And Other Testing

That’s digital sorry unless it’s < 9kHz so as to sample low frequency stuff.  Needs FCC testing unless it’s a prepackaged module that already has FCC approval in which case you just need to display that number on your product.

This was a good discussion, thanks.

I was thinking today; How does a chopper amplifier fit into the 9KHz FCC clock threshold?

I recently ran into trouble receiving a package from Erica Synths in Latvia. They normally declare a low value since these are demo units I receive to make videos and manuals for, but this time they forgot and it was declared as over 1000 USD, which is a kind of "threshold for customs attention" here in Mexico. The result was that due to a new law from August 2020, customs was requiring that I pay all the necessary licensing papers so that my rack with two modules inside could be legally imported, and it came to over 3000 Euros total.  Luckily I was able to find a knowledgeable customs agent who managed to reclassify the package as "parts for synthesizers" rather than a complete synth, and after a few weeks in expensive storage, the import fees and the agent's own fees, ended up costing 700 euros to release. Expensive, but it was still worth it to Erica to pay, rather than abandon and ship me a new box with a low declared value.
Lesson learned!
Any electronics entering Mexico with a declared value over 1k usd is likely to get stopped and possibly the NYCE certification will be required.

Not only radiated emissions count, but also conducted - via power cable
and plugged patchcords. And maybe I'm being paranoid, but I think your
test results document will be then only good for THIS module in THIS
case as a whole. So you could only legally sell the module with exaclty
this case bundle.
