802.11a/g Mini Compact Flash Module with Antenna Connectors
*The SDC-MCF10AG has reached end of production and is no longer available.
The SDC-MCF10AG module provides all key Summit hardware and software capabilities in a miniature form factor with a Compact Flash interface. The module operates in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands supporting IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. Because it uses the same board connector and pin definitions as the MCF10G module, the MCF10AG module provides a smooth upgrade path from 802.11b/g to 802.11a/b/g.
Please review the below data sheets for complete device specifications.

The SDC-MCF10AG is certified for compliance to various CE, ETSI, FCC, and Industry Canada standards as well as Wi-Fi Alliance and Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) specifications. The grants, approvals, and formal test reports associated with these certifications may be leveraged by Laird customers to achieve their required device certifications. The degree to which customers can leverage these items is dependent upon the regulatory agency, industry body, and the type of end device.
If any additional information or guidance is required, please contact Summit's certification group via email or by telephone at 330.434.7929.
The SDC-MCF10AG has been tested for compliance to various CE and ETSI standards and specifications:
This testing was conducted with the following antennas:
These formal test reports may be leveraged by mobile and portable device vendors as part of their self-declaration to obtain the CE mark required by members of the European Union. ETSI/CE rules differ from those of the FCC and IC in that there is no provision for a modular approval. All approvals and certifications must exist at the device level rather than the module (radio) level.
The SDC-MCF10AG is fully compliant with Annex IV procedures in article 10.5 of R&TTE directive 99/5/EC.
Like all Summit devices, the SDC-MCF10AG is fully compliant with European Union Directive 2011/65/EU or Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as per our Declaration of Compliance.
This grant relates to operation in the 2.412 to 2.462 GHz (ISM) and 5.745 to 5.805 GHz (UNII-3) frequency bands.
This grant relates to operation in the 5.180 to 5.240 GHz (UNII-1), 5.280 to 5.320 GHz (UNII-2) and 5.500 to 5.700 GHz (the UNII-2 Extended) frequency bands.
Please note that all transmit power values in the above FCC grants reflect average power rather than peak power and as such are lower than the transmit power values stated on the SDC-MCF10AG data sheet. The above grants are Limited Modular Approvals (LMAs). Specific limitations are indicated on each grant.
Note: Summit test data may be leveraged by the device vendor to minimize the cost and time associated with the certification process.
The SDC-MCF10AG is certified to the Industry Canada (IC) RSS-210 standard. IC 6616A-SDCMCF10AG certification is based on FCC certification testing, using the same antennas and transmit power and covering the same frequency bands. Test reports and data sheets relevant to this certification may be found in the FCC section above.
Summit has received an Embedded Client Certification 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-MCF10AG, 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.
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-MCF10AG 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-MCF10AG, the vendor may assert that their device incorporates a Cisco Compatible radio module.

Device vendors who are members of the CCX program may also choose to secure CCX compliance for their end device. When incorporating the SDC-MCF10AG 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-MCF10AG 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.
