1.4 DUT Antenna Locations
The overall dimensions of this device are > 9 x 5 cm. A diagram showing the location of the device antennas can
be found in Appendix F. Since the diagonal dimension of this device is > 160 mm and <200 mm, it is considered a
“phablet.”. Table 1-1
Device Edges/Sides for SAR Testing
Note: Particular DUT edges were not required to be evaluated for wireless router SAR or phablet SAR if the
edges were greater than 2.5 cm from the transmitting antenna according to FCC KDB Publication 941225
D06v02r01 Section III and FCC KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03. The distances between the transmit
antennas and the edges of the device are included in the filing. When wireless router mode is enabled, U-NII-1,
U-NII-2A, U-NII-2C operations are disabled.
1.5 Near Field Communications (NFC) Antenna
This DUT has NFC operations. The NFC antenna is integrated into the device for this model. Therefore, all SAR
tests were performed with the device which already incorporates the NFC antenna. A diagram showing the
location of the NFC antenna can be found in Appendix F.
1.6 Simultaneous Transmission Capabilities
According to FCC KDB Publication 447498 D01v06, transmitters are considered to be transmitting simultaneously
when there is overlapping transmission, with the exception of transmissions during network hand-offs with
maximum hand-off duration less than 30 seconds. Possible transmission paths for the DUT are shown in
Figure 1-1 and are color-coded to indicate communication modes which share the same path. Modes which share
the same transmission path cannot transmit simultaneously with one another.

This device contains multiple transmitters that may operate simultaneously, and therefore requires a simultaneous
transmission analysis according to FCC KDB Publication 447498 D01v06 4.3.2 procedures.
Table 1-2
Simultaneous Transmission Scenarios
1. Bluetooth cannot transmit simultaneously with WLAN.
2. All licensed modes share the same antenna path and cannot transmit simultaneously.
3. When the user utilizes multiple services in UMTS 3G mode it uses multi-Radio Access Bearer or multi-
RAB. The power control is based on a physical control channel (Dedicated Physical Control Channel
[DPCCH]) and power control will be adjusted to meet the needs of both services. Therefore, the
UMTS+WLAN scenario also represents the UMTS Voice/DATA + WLAN Hotspot scenario.
4. Per the manufacturer, WIFI Direct is not expected to be used in conjunction with a held-to-ear or body-
worn accessory voice call. Therefore, there are no simultaneous transmission scenarios involving WIFI
direct beyond that listed in the above table.
5. 5 GHz Wireless Router is only supported for the U-NII-3 by S/W, therefore U-NII-1, U-NII2A, and U-NII2C
were not evaluated for wireless router conditions.
6. This device supports 2x2 MIMO Tx for WLAN. 802.11a/g/n/ac supports CDD and STBC and 802.11n/ac
additionally supports SDM.
7. This device supports Bluetooth tethering for EDR packet only.
8. This device supports VOLTE.

1.7 Miscellaneous SAR Test Considerations
(A) WIFI/BT
Since U-NII-1 and U-NII-2A bands have the same maximum output power and the highest reported SAR for
U-NII-2A is less than 1.2 W/kg, SAR is not required for U-NII-1 band according to FCC KDB Publication
248227 D01v02r02.
Since Wireless Router operations are not allowed by the chipset firmware using U-NII-1, U-NII-2A & U-NII-2C
WIFI, only 2.4 GHz and U-NII-3 WIFI Hotspot SAR tests and combinations are considered for SAR with
respect to Wireless Router configurations according to FCC KDB 941225 D06v02r01.
This device supports IEEE 802.11ac with the following features:
a) Up to 80 MHz Bandwidth only
b) No aggregate channel configurations
c) 2 Tx antenna output
d) 256 QAM is supported
e) TDWR and Band gap channels are supported
Per FCC KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03, this device is considered a "phablet" since the diagonal
dimension is greater than 160mm and less than 200mm. Phablet SAR tests are required when wireless router
mode does not apply or if wireless router 1g SAR > 1.2 W/kg. Because wireless router operations are not
supported for U-NII-1, U-NII-2A & U-NII-2C WLAN, phablet SAR tests were performed. Phablet SAR was not
evaluated for 2.4 GHz and U-NII-3 WLAN operations since wireless router 1g SAR was < 1.2 W/kg.
(B) Licensed Transmitter(s)
GSM/GPRS/EDGE DTM is not supported for US bands. Therefore, the GSM Voice modes in this report do
not transmit simultaneously with GPRS/EDGE Data.
This device is only capable of QPSK HSUPA in the uplink. Therefore, no additional SAR tests are required
beyond that described for devices with HSUPA in KDB 941225 D01v03r01.
CDMA 1X Advanced technology was not required for SAR since the maximum allowed output powers for 1x
Advanced was not more than 0.25 dB higher than the maximum powers for 1x and the measured SAR in any
1x mode exposure conditions was not greater than 1.2 W/kg per FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01.
LTE SAR for the higher modulations and lower bandwidths were not tested since the maximum average
output power of all required channels and configurations was not more than 0.5 dB higher than the highest
bandwidth; and the reported LTE SAR for the highest bandwidth was less than 1.45 W/kg for all
configurations according to FCC KDB 941225 D05v02r04.
This device supports LTE Carrier Aggregation (CA) in the downlink. All uplink communications are identical to
Release 8 specifications. Per FCC KDB Publication 941225 D05A v01r02, SAR for downlink only LTE CA
operations was not needed since the maximum average output power in downlink only LTE CA mode was not
>0.25 dB higher than the maximum output power when downlink carrier aggregation was inactive.
This device supports LTE Carrier Aggregation (CA) in the uplink for LTE Band 41 with two component carriers
in the uplink. SAR Measurements and conducted powers were evaluated per FCC Guidance.
This device supports downlink 4x4 MIMO operations for LTE Bands 2, 4, 25 and 66 only. Per FCC Guidance,
SAR for downlink 4x4 MIMO was not needed since the maximum average output power in 4x4 downlink
MIMO mode was not > 0.25 dB higher than the maximum output power with downlink 4x4 MIMO inactive.

This device supports 64QAM on the uplink and 256QAM on the downlink for LTE Operations. Conducted
powers for 64QAM uplink configurations were measured per Section 5.1 of FCC KDB Publication 941225
D05v02r05. SAR was not required for 64QAM since the highest maximum output power for 64 QAM is ½
dB higher than the same configuration in QPSK and the reported SAR for the QPSK configuration is 1.45
W/kg, per Section 5.2.4 of FCC KDB Publication 941225 D05v02r05.
This device supports both Power Class 2 (PC2) and Power Class 3 (PC3) for LTE Band 41. Per FCC
Guidance, SAR tests were performed with Power Class 3 (given the specific UL/DL limitations for Power
Class 2). Additionally, SAR testing for the Power Class 2 condition was evaluated for the highest configuration
in Power Class 3 to confirm the results were scalable linearly (See Section 14.2).
This device supports both LTE B12 and LTE B17. Since the supported frequency span for LTE B17 falls
completely within the supported frequency span for LTE B12, both LTE bands have the same target power,
and both LTE bands share the same transmission path, SAR was only assessed for LTE B12.
This device supports both LTE B66 (AWS) and LTE B4 (AWS). Since the supported frequency span for LTE
B4 (AWS) falls completely within the supported frequency span for LTE B66 (AWS), both LTE bands have the
same target power, and both LTE bands share the same transmission path, SAR was only assessed for LTE
B66 (AWS).
This device supports both LTE B25 (PCS) and LTE B2 (PCS). Since the supported frequency span for LTE
B2 (PCS) falls completely within the supported frequency span for LTE B25 (PCS), both LTE bands have the
same target power, and both LTE bands share the same transmission path, SAR was only assessed for LTE
B25 (PCS).
Per FCC KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03, this device is considered a "phablet" since the diagonal
dimension is greater than 160mm and less than 200mm. Therefore, phablet SAR tests are required when
wireless router mode does not apply or if wireless router 1g SAR > 1.2 W/kg.

The FCC and Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada have adopted the guidelines for
evaluating the environmental effects of radio frequency (RF) radiation in ET Docket 93-62 on Aug. 6, 1996 and
Health Canada Safety Code 6 to protect the public and workers from the potential hazards of RF emissions due to
FCC-regulated portable devices. [1]
The safety limits used for the environmental evaluation measurements are based on the criteria published by the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for localized specific absorption rate (SAR) in IEEE/ANSI C95.1-
1992 Standard for Safety Levels with Respect to Human Exposure to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields, 3
kHz to 300 GHz [3] and Health Canada RF Exposure Guidelines Safety Code 6 [22]. The measurement
procedure described in IEEE/ANSI C95.3-2002 Recommended Practice for the Measurement of Potentially
Hazardous Electromagnetic Fields - RF and Microwave [4] is used for guidance in measuring the Specific
Absorption Rate (SAR) due to the RF radiation exposure from the Equipment Under Test (EUT). These criteria for
SAR evaluation are similar to those recommended by the International Committee for Non-Ionizing Radiation
Protection (ICNIRP) in Biological Effects and Exposure Criteria for Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields,”
Report No. Vol 74. SAR is a measure of the rate of energy absorption due to exposure to an RF transmitting
source. SAR values have been related to threshold levels for potential biological hazards.
3.1 SAR Definition
Specific Absorption Rate is defined as the time derivative (rate) of the incremental energy (dU) absorbed by
(dissipated in) an incremental mass (dm) contained in a volume element (dV) of a given density (). It is also
defined as the rate of RF energy absorption per unit mass at a point in an absorbing body (see Equation 3-1).

where:
= conductivity of the tissue-simulating material (S/m)

E = Total RMS electric field strength (V/m)
NOTE: The primary factors that control rate of energy absorption were found to be the wavelength of the incident field in relation to the
dimensions and geometry of the irradiated organism, the orientation of the organism in relation to the polarity of field vectors, the presence of
reflecting surfaces, and whether conductive contact is made by the organism with a ground plane.[6]

4.1 Measurement Procedure
The evaluation was performed using the following procedure compliant to
FCC KDB Publication 865664 D01v01r04 and IEEE 1528-2013:
1. The SAR distribution at the exposed side of the head or body was
measured at a distance no greater than 5.0 mm from the inner surface of
the shell. The area covered the entire dimension of the device-head and
body interface and the horizontal grid resolution was determined per
FCC KDB Publication 865664 D01v01r04 (See Table 4-1) and IEEE
1528-2013.
2. The point SAR measurement was taken at the maximum SAR region
determined from Step 1 to enable the monitoring of SAR
fluctuations/drifts during the 1g/10g cube evaluation. SAR at this fixed
point was measured and used as a reference value.
3. Based on the area scan data, the peak of the region with maximum SAR
was determined by spline interpolation. Around this point, a volume was assessed according to the
measurement resolution and volume size requirements of FCC KDB Publication 865664 D01v01r04 (See
Table 4-1) and IEEE 1528-2013. On the basis of this data set, the spatial peak SAR value was evaluated with
the following procedure (see references or the DASY manual online for more details):
a. SAR values at the inner surface of the phantom are extrapolated from the measured values along the
line away from the surface with spacing no greater than that in Table 4-1. The extrapolation was based on
a least-squares algorithm. A polynomial of the fourth order was calculated through the points in the z-axis
(normal to the phantom shell).
b. After the maximum interpolated values were calculated between the points in the cube, the SAR was
averaged over the spatial volume (1g or 10g) using a 3D-Spline interpolation algorithm. The 3D-spline is
composed of three one-dimensional splines with the “Not a knot” condition (in x, y, and z directions). The
volume was then integrated with the trapezoidal algorithm. One thousand points (10 x 10 x 10) were
obtained through interpolation, in order to calculate the averaged SAR.
c. All neighboring volumes were evaluated until no neighboring volume with a higher average value was
found.
4. The SAR reference value, at the same location as step 2, was re-measured after the zoom scan was complete
to calculate the SAR drift. If the drift deviated by more than 5%, the SAR test and drift measurements were
repeated. Table 4-1

5.1 EAR REFERENCE POINT
Figure 5-2 shows the front, back and side views of the SAM Twin Phantom. The point
“M” is the reference point for the center of the mouth, “LE” is the left ear reference point
(ERP), and “RE” is the right ERP. The ERP is 15mm posterior to the entrance to the
ear canal (EEC) along the B-M line (Back-Mouth), as shown in Figure 5-1. The plane
passing through the two ear canals and M is defined as the Reference Plane. The line
N-F (Neck-Front), also called the Reference Pivoting Line, is not perpendicular to the
reference plane (see Figure 5-1). Line B-M is perpendicular to the N-F line. Both N-F
and B-M lines are marked on the external phantom shell to facilitate handset positioning
[5].
5.2 HANDSET REFERENCE POINTS
Two imaginary lines on the handset were established: the vertical centerline and the
horizontal line. The test device was placed in a normal operating position with the acoustic output located along
the “vertical centerline” on the front of the device aligned to the “ear reference point” (See Figure 5-3). The
acoustic output was than located at the same level as the center of the ear reference point. The test device was
positioned so that the “vertical centerline” was bisecting the front surface of the handset at its top and bottom
edges, positioning the “ear reference point” on the outer surface of the both the left and right head phantoms on
the ear reference point.

6.1 Device Holder
The device holder is made out of low-loss POM material having the following dielectric parameters: relative
permittivity ε = 3 and loss tangent δ = 0.02.
6.2 Positioning for Cheek
1. The test device was positioned with the device close to the surface of the phantom such that point A is on
the (virtual) extension of the line passing through points RE and LE on the phantom (see Figure 6-1),
such that the plane defined by the vertical center line and the horizontal line of the phone is approximately
parallel to the sagittal plane of the phantom.
Figure 6-1 Front, Side and Top View of Cheek Position
2. The handset was translated towards the phantom along the line passing through RE & LE until the
handset touches the pinna.
3. While maintaining the handset in this plane, the handset was rotated around the LE-RE line until the
vertical centerline was in the reference plane.
4. The phone was then rotated around the vertical centerline until the phone (horizontal line) was
symmetrical was respect to the line NF.
5. While maintaining the vertical centerline in the reference plane, keeping point A on the line passing
through RE and LE, and maintaining the device contact with the ear, the device was rotated about the NF
line until any point on the handset made contact with a phantom point below the ear (cheek) (See Figure
6-2).
6.3 Positioning for Ear / 15º Tilt
With the test device aligned in the “Cheek Position”:
1. While maintaining the orientation of the phone, the phone was retracted parallel to the reference plane far
enough to enable a rotation of the phone by 15degrees.
2. The phone was then rotated around the horizontal line by 15 degrees.
3. While maintaining the orientation of the phone, the phone was moved parallel to the reference plane until
any part of the handset touched the head. (In this position, point A was located on the line RE-LE). The
tilted position is obtained when the contact is on the pinna. If the contact was at any location other than
the pinna, the angle of the phone would then be reduced. In this situation, the tilted position was obtained
when any part of the phone was in contact of the ear as well as a second part of the phone was in contact
with the head (see Figure 6-2).

6.4 SAR Evaluations near the Mouth/Jaw Regions of the SAM Phantom
Antennas located near the bottom of a phone may require SAR measurements around the mouth and jaw regions
of the SAM head phantom. This typically applies to clam-shell style phones that are generally longer in the
unfolded normal use positions or to certain older style long rectangular phones. Per IEEE 1528-2013, a rotated
SAM phantom is necessary to allow probe access to such regions. Both SAM heads of the TwinSAM-Chin20 are
rotated 20 degrees around the NF line. Each head can be removed from the table for emptying and cleaning.
Under these circumstances, the following procedures apply, adopted from the FCC guidance on SAR handsets
document FCC KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03. The SAR required in these regions of SAM should be
measured using a flat phantom. The phone should be positioned with a separation distance of 4 mm between the
ear reference point (ERP) and the outer surface of the flat phantom shell. While maintaining this distance at the
ERP location, the low (bottom) edge of the phone should be lowered from the phantom to establish the same
separation distance between the peak SAR location identified by the truncated partial SAR distribution measured
with the SAM phantom. The distance from the peak SAR location to the phone is determined by the straight line
passing perpendicularly through the phantom surface. When it is not feasible to maintain 4 mm separation at the
ERP while also establishing the required separation at the peak SAR location, the top edge of the phone will be
allowed to touch the phantom with a separation < 4 mm at the ERP. The phone should not be tilted to the left or
right while placed in this inclined position to the flat phantom.
6.5 Body-Worn Accessory Configurations
Body-worn operating configurations are tested with the belt-clips
and holsters attached to the device and positioned against a flat
phantom in a normal use configuration (see Figure 6-4). Per FCC
KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03, Body-worn accessory
exposure is typically related to voice mode operations when
handsets are carried in body-worn accessories. The body-worn
accessory procedures in FCC KDB Publication 447498 D01v06
should be used to test for body-worn accessory SAR compliance,
without a headset connected to it. This enables the test results for
such configuration to be compatible with that required for hotspot
mode when the body-worn accessory test separation distance is
greater than or equal to that required for hotspot mode, when
applicable. When the reported SAR for a body-worn accessory, measured without a headset connected to the
handset, is > 1.2 W/kg, the highest reported SAR configuration for that wireless mode and frequency band should
be repeated for that body-worn accessory with a headset attached to the handset.
Accessories for Body-worn operation configurations are divided into two categories: those that do not contain
metallic components and those that do contain metallic components. When multiple accessories that do not
contain metallic components are supplied with the device, the device is tested with only the accessory that
dictates the closest spacing to the body. Then multiple accessories that contain metallic components are tested
with the device with each accessory. If multiple accessories share an identical metallic component (i.e. the same

metallic belt-clip used with different holsters with no other metallic components) only the accessory that dictates
the closest spacing to the body is tested.
Body-worn accessories may not always be supplied or available as options for some devices intended to be
authorized for body-worn use. In this case, a test configuration with a separation distance between the back of
the device and the flat phantom is used. Test position spacing was documented.
Transmitters that are designed to operate in front of a person’s face, as in push-to-talk configurations, are tested
for SAR compliance with the front of the device positioned to face the flat phantom in head fluid. For devices that
are carried next to the body such as a shoulder, waist or chest-worn transmitters, SAR compliance is tested with
the accessories, including headsets and microphones, attached to the device and positioned against a flat
phantom in a normal use configuration.
6.6 Extremity Exposure Configurations
Devices that are designed or intended for use on extremities or mainly operated in extremity only exposure
conditions; i.e., hands, wrists, feet and ankles, may require extremity SAR evaluation. When the device also
operates in close proximity to the user’s body, SAR compliance for the body is also required. The 1-g body and
10-g extremity SAR Exclusion Thresholds found in KDB Publication 447498 D01v06 should be applied to
determine SAR test requirements.
Per KDB Publication 447498 D01v06, Cell phones (handsets) are not normally designed to be used on
extremities or operated in extremity only exposure conditions. The maximum output power levels of handsets
generally do not require extremity SAR testing to show compliance. Therefore, extremity SAR was not evaluated
for this device.
6.7 Wireless Router Configurations
Some battery-operated handsets have the capability to transmit and receive user data through simultaneous
transmission of WIFI simultaneously with a separate licensed transmitter. The FCC has provided guidance in FCC
KDB Publication 941225 D06v02r01 where SAR test considerations for handsets (L x W 9 cm x 5 cm) are
based on a composite test separation distance of 10 mm from the front, back and edges of the device containing
transmitting antennas within 2.5 cm of their edges, determined from general mixed use conditions for this type of
devices. Since the hotspot SAR results may overlap with the body-worn accessory SAR requirements, the more
conservative configurations can be considered, thus excluding some body-worn accessory SAR tests.
When the user enables the personal wireless router functions for the handset, actual operations include
simultaneous transmission of both the WIFI transmitter and another licensed transmitter. Both transmitters often
do not transmit at the same transmitting frequency and thus cannot be evaluated for SAR under actual use
conditions due to the limitations of the SAR assessment probes. Therefore, SAR must be evaluated for each
frequency transmission and mode separately and spatially summed with the WIFI transmitter according to FCC
KDB Publication 447498 D01v06 procedures. The “Portable Hotspot” feature on the handset was NOT activated
during SAR assessments, to ensure the SAR measurements were evaluated for a single transmission frequency
RF signal at a time.

6.8 Phablet Configurations
For smart phones with a display diagonal dimension > 150 mm or an overall diagonal dimension > 160 mm that
provide similar mobile web access and multimedia support found in mini-tablets or UMPC mini-tablets that
support voice calls next to the ear, the phablets procedures outlined in KDB Publication 648474 D04v01r03
should be applied to evaluate SAR compliance. A device marketed as phablets, regardless of form factors and
operating characteristics must be tested as a phablet to determine SAR compliance. In addition to the normally
required head and body-worn accessory SAR test procedures required for handsets, the UMPC mini-tablet
procedures must also be applied to test the SAR of all surfaces and edges with an antenna <=25 mm from that
surface or edge, in direct contact with the phantom, for 10-g SAR. The UMPC mini-tablet 1-g SAR at 5 mm is not
required. When hotspot mode applies, 10-g SAR is required only for the surfaces and edges with hotspot mode
1-g SAR > 1.2 W/kg.
6.9 Additional Test Positions due to Proximity Conditions
This device uses a sensor to reduce voice and data powers in extremity (hand-held) use conditions.
When the sensor detects a user is touching the device on or near to the antenna the device reduces the
maximum allowed output power However, the proximity sensor is not active when the device is moved beyond the
sensor triggering distance and the maximum output power is no longer limited. Therefore, an additional exposure
condition is needed in the vicinity of the triggering distance to ensure SAR is compliant when the device is allowed
to operate at a non-reduced output power level.
The proximity sensor is designed to support sufficient detection range and sensitivity to cover regions of the
sensors in all applicable directions since the proximity sensor entirely covers the antenna. FCC KDB Publication
616217 D04v01r02 Section 6 was used as a guideline for selecting SAR test distances for this device at these
additional test positions. Sensor triggering distance summary data is included in Appendix H.

7.1 Uncontrolled Environment
UNCONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS are defined as locations where there is the exposure of individuals who
have no knowledge or control of their exposure. The general population/uncontrolled exposure limits are
applicable to situations in which the general public may be exposed or in which persons who are exposed as a
consequence of their employment may not be made fully aware of the potential for exposure or cannot exercise
control over their exposure. Members of the general public would come under this category when exposure is not
employment-related; for example, in the case of a wireless transmitter that exposes persons in its vicinity.
7.2 Controlled Environment
CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS are defined as locations where there is exposure that may be incurred by
persons who are aware of the potential for exposure, (i.e. as a result of employment or occupation). In general,
occupational/controlled exposure limits are applicable to situations in which persons are exposed as a
consequence of their employment, who have been made fully aware of the potential for exposure and can
exercise control over their exposure. This exposure category is also applicable when the exposure is of a
transient nature due to incidental passage through a location where the exposure levels may be higher than the
general population/uncontrolled limits, but the exposed person is fully aware of the potential for exposure and can
exercise control over his or her exposure by leaving the area or by some other appropriate means.

Power measurements for licensed transmitters are performed using a base station simulator under digital average
power.
8.1 Measured and Reported SAR
Per FCC KDB Publication 447498 D01v06, when SAR is not measured at the maximum power level allowed for
production units, the results must be scaled to the maximum tune-up tolerance limit according to the power
applied to the individual channels tested to determine compliance. For simultaneous transmission, the measured
aggregate SAR must be scaled according to the sum of the differences between the maximum tune-up tolerance
and actual power used to test each transmitter. When SAR is measured at or scaled to the maximum tune-up
tolerance limit, the results are referred to as reported SAR. The highest reported SAR results are identified on the
grant of equipment authorization according to procedures in KDB 690783 D01v01r03.
8.2 3G SAR Test Reduction Procedure
In FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01, certain transmission modes within a frequency band and wireless
mode evaluated for SAR are defined as primary modes. The equivalent modes considered for SAR test reduction
are denoted as secondary modes. When the maximum output power including tune-up tolerance specified for
production units in a secondary mode is 0.25 dB higher than the primary mode or when the highest reported
SAR of the primary mode, scaled by the ratio of specified maximum output power and tune-up tolerance of
secondary to primary mode, is 1.2 W/kg, SAR measurements are not required for the secondary mode. These
criteria are referred to as the 3G SAR test reduction procedure. When the 3G SAR test reduction procedure is not
satisfied, SAR measurements are additionally required for the secondary mode.
8.3 Procedures Used to Establish RF Signal for SAR
The following procedures are according to FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01 3G SAR Measurement
Procedures.”
The device is placed into a simulated call using a base station simulator in a RF shielded chamber. Establishing
connections in this manner ensure a consistent means for testing SAR and are recommended for evaluating SAR
[4]. Devices under test are evaluated prior to testing, with a fully charged battery and were configured to operate
at maximum output power. In order to verify that the device is tested throughout the SAR test at maximum output
power, the SAR measurement system measures a “point SAR” at an arbitrary reference point at the start and end
of the 1 gram SAR evaluation, to assess for any power drifts during the evaluation. If the power drift deviates by
more than 5%, the SAR test and drift measurements are repeated.
8.4 SAR Measurement Conditions for CDMA2000
The following procedures were performed according to FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01 “3G SAR
Measurement Procedures.
8.4.1 Output Power Verification
See 3GPP2 C.S0011/TIA-98-E as recommended by FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01 3G SAR
Measurement Procedures.Maximum output power is verified on the High, Middle and Low channels
according to procedures in section 4.4.5.2 of 3GPP2 C.S0011/TIA-98-E. SO55 tests were measured with
power control bits in the “All Up” condition.

8.4.2 Head SAR Measurements
SAR for next to the ear head exposure is measured in RC3 with the handset configured to transmit at
fullrate in SO55. The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to RC1 with RC3 as the primary mode;
otherwise, SAR is required for the channel with maximum measured output in RC1 using the head
exposure configuration that results in the highest reported SAR in RC3.
Head SAR is additionally evaluated using EVDO Rev. A to support compliance for VoIP operations. See
Section 8.4.5 for EVDO Rev. A configuration parameters.
8.4.3 Body-worn SAR Measurements
SAR for body-worn exposure configurations is measured in RC3 with the DUT configured to transmit at
full rate on FCH with all other code channels disabled using TDSO / SO32. The 3G SAR test reduction
procedure is applied to the multiple code channel configuration (FCH+SCHn), with FCH only as the
primary mode. Otherwise, SAR is required for multiple code channel configuration (FCH + SCHn), with
FCH at full rate and SCH0 enabled at 9600 bps, using the highest reported SAR configuration for FCH
only. When multiple code channels are enabled, the transmitter output can shift by more than 0.5 dB and
may lead to higher SAR drifts and SCH dropouts.

primary mode. Otherwise, SAR is required for RC1, with SO55 and full rate, using the highest reported
SAR configuration for body-worn accessory exposure in RC3.
8.4.4 Body-worn SAR Measurements for EVDO Devices
For handsets with Ev-Do capabilities, the 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to Ev-Do Rev. 0
with 1x RTT RC3 as the primary mode to determine body-worn accessory test requirements. Otherwise,
body-worn accessory SAR is required for Rev. 0, at 153.6 kbps, using the highest reported SAR
configuration for body-worn accessory exposure in RC3.
The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to Rev. A, with Rev. 0 as the primary mode to determine
body-worn accessory SAR test requirements. When SAR is not required for Rev. 0, the 3G SAR test
reduction is applied with 1x RTT RC3 as the primary mode.
When SAR is required for EVDO Rev. A, SAR is measured with a Reverse Data Channel payload size of
4096 bits and a Termination Target of 16 slots defined for Subtype 2 Physical Layer configurations, using

appropriate.
8.4.5 Body SAR Measurements for EVDO Hotspot
Hotspot Body SAR is measured using Subtype 0/1 Physical Layer configurations for Rev. 0. The 3G SAR
test reduction procedure is applied to Rev. A, Subtype 2 Physical layer configuration, with Rev. 0 as the
primary mode; otherwise, SAR is measured for Rev. A using the highest reported SAR configuration for
body-worn accessory exposure in Rev. 0. The AT is tested with a Reverse Data Channel rate of 153.6
kbps in Subtype 0/1 Physical Layer configurations; and a Reverse Data Channel payload size of 4096
bits and Termination Target of 16 slots in Subtype 2 Physical Layer configurations.

procedure is applied to 1x RTT RC3 and RC1 with Ev-Do Rev. 0 and Rev. A as the respective primary
modes. Otherwise, the ‘Body-Worn Accessory SAR’ procedures in the ‘3GPP2 CDMA 2000 1x Handsets’
section are applied.
8.4.6 CDMA2000 1x Advanced
This device additionally supports 1x Advanced. Conducted powers are measured using SO75 with RC8
on the uplink and RC11 on the downlink per FCC KDB Publication 941225 D01v03r01. Smart blanking is
disabled for all measurements. The EUT is configured with forward power control Mode 000 and reverse
power control at 400 bps. Conducted powers are measured on an Agilent 8960 Series 10 Wireless
Communications Test Set, Model E5515C using the CDMA2000 1x Advanced application, Option
E1962B-410.
The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to the 1x-Advanced transmission mode with 1x RTT RC3
as the primary mode. When SAR measurement is required, the 1x-Advanced power measurement
configurations are used. The1x Advanced SAR procedures are applied separately to head, body-worn
accessory and other exposure conditions.
8.5 SAR Measurement Conditions for UMTS
8.5.1 Output Power Verification
Maximum output power is verified on the High, Middle and Low channels according to the general
descriptions in section 5.2 of 3GPP TS 34.121, using the appropriate RMC with TPC (transmit power
control) set to all “1s” or applying the required inner loop power control procedures to maintain maximum
output power while HSUPA is active. Results for all applicable physical channel configurations (DPCCH,
DPDCHn and spreading codes, HS-DPCCH etc) are tabulated in this test report. All configurations that
are not supported by the DUT or cannot be measured due to technical or equipment limitations are
identified.
8.5.2 Head SAR Measurements
SAR for next to the ear head exposure is measured using a 12.2 kbps RMC with TPC bits configured to
all “1’s”. The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to AMR configurations with 12.2 kbps RMC as
the primary mode. Otherwise, SAR is measured for 12.2 kbps AMR in 3.4 kbps SRB (signaling radio
bearer) using the highest reported SAR configuration in 12.2 kbps RMC for head exposure.
8.5.3 Body SAR Measurements
SAR for body exposure configurations is measured using the 12.2 kbps RMC with the TPC bits all “1s”.

8.5.4 SAR Measurements with Rel 5 HSDPA
The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to HSDPA body configurations with 12.2 kbps RMC as
the primary mode. Otherwise, Body SAR for HSDPA is measured using an FRC with H-Set 1 in Sub-test
1 and a 12.2 kbps RMC configured in Test Loop Mode 1, for the highest reported SAR configuration in
12.2 kbps RMC without HSDPA. Handsets with both HSDPA and HSUPA are tested according to
Release 6 HSPA test procedures.
8.5.5 SAR Measurements with Rel 6 HSUPA
The 3G SAR test reduction procedure is applied to HSPA (HSUPA/HSDPA with RMC) body
configurations with 12.2 kbps RMC as the primary mode. Otherwise, Body SAR for HSPA is measured
with E-DCH Sub-test 5, using H-Set 1 and QPSK for FRC and a 12.2 kbps RMC configured in Test Loop

are applied to head exposure testing.
8.5.6 SAR Measurement Conditions for DC-HSDPA
SAR is required for Rel. 8 DC-HSDPA when SAR is required for Rel. 5 HSDPA; otherwise, the 3G SAR
test reduction procedure is applied to DC-HSDPA with 12.2 kbps RMC as the primary mode. Power is
measured for DC-HSDPA according to the H-Set 12, FRC configuration in Table C.8.1.12 of 3GPP TS
34.121-1 to determine SAR test reduction. A primary and a secondary serving HS-DSCH Cell are
required to perform the power measurement and for the results to be acceptable.
8.6 SAR Measurement Conditions for LTE
LTE modes are tested according to FCC KDB 941225 D05v02r04 publication. Establishing connections with base
station simulators ensure a consistent means for testing SAR and are recommended for evaluating SAR [4]. The
R&S CMW500 or Anritsu MT8820C simulators are used for LTE output power measurements and SAR testing.
Closed loop power control was used so the UE transmits with maximum output power during SAR testing. SAR
tests were performed with the same number of RB and RB offsets transmitting on all TTI frames (maximum TTI).
8.6.1 Spectrum Plots for RB Configurations
A properly configured base station simulator was used for SAR tests and power measurements.
Therefore, spectrum plots for RB configurations were not required to be included in this report.
8.6.2 MPR
MPR is permanently implemented for this device by the manufacturer. The specific manufacturer target
MPR is indicated alongside the SAR results. MPR is enabled for this device, according to 3GPP
TS36.101 Section 6.2.3 6.2.5 under Table 6.2.3-1.

a. Per Section 5.2.1, SAR is required for QPSK 1 RB Allocation for the largest bandwidth
i. The required channel and offset combination with the highest maximum output power is
required for SAR.
ii. When the reported SAR is ≤ 0.6 W/kg for LTE Band 41 and 0.8 W/kg for other LTE
Bands, testing of the remaining RB offset configurations and required test channels is not
required. Otherwise, SAR is required for the remaining required test channels using the
RB offset configuration with highest output power for that channel.
iii. When the reported SAR for a required test channel is > 1.45 W/kg, SAR is required for all
RB offset configurations for that channel.
b. Per Section 5.2.2, SAR is required for 50% RB allocation using the largest bandwidth following
the same procedures outlined in Section 5.2.1.
c. Per Section 5.2.3, QPSK SAR is not required for the 100% allocation when the highest maximum
output power for the 100% allocation is less than the highest maximum output power of the 1 RB
and 50% RB allocations and the reported SAR for the 1 RB and 50% RB allocations is < 0.8
W/kg.
d. Per Section 5.2.4 and 5.3, SAR tests for higher order modulations and lower bandwidths
configurations are not required when the conducted power of the required test configurations
determined by Sections 5.2.1 through 5.2.3 is less than or equal to ½ dB higher than the
equivalent configuration using QPSK modulation and when the QPSK SAR for those
configurations is <1.45 W/kg.
8.6.5 TDD
LTE TDD testing is performed using the SAR test guidance provided in FCC KDB 941225 D05v02r04.
TDD is tested at the highest duty factor using UL-DL configuration 0 with special subframe configuration 6
and applying the FDD LTE procedures in KDB 941225 D05v02r04. SAR testing is performed using the
extended cyclic prefix listed in 3GPP TS 36.211 Section 4.
8.6.6 Downlink Only Carrier Aggregation
Conducted power measurements with LTE Carrier Aggregation (CA) (downlink only) active are made in
accordance to KDB Publication 941225 D05Av01r02. The RRC connection is only handled by one cell,
the primary component carrier (PCC) for downlink and uplink communications. After making a data
connection to the PCC, the UE device adds secondary component carrier(s) (SCC) on the downlink only.
All uplink communications and acknowledgements remain identical to specifications when downlink
carrier aggregation is inactive on the PCC. For every supported combination of downlink only carrier
aggregation, additional conducted output powers are measured with the downlink carrier aggregation
active for the configuration with highest measured maximum conducted power with downlink carrier
aggregation inactive measured among the channel bandwidth, modulation, and RB combinations in each
frequency band. Per FCC KDB Publication 941225 D05Av01r02, no SAR measurements are required for
carrier aggregation configurations when the average output power with downlink only carrier aggregation
active is not more than 0.25 dB higher than the average output power with downlink only carrier
aggregation inactive.
8.7 SAR Testing with 802.11 Transmitters
The normal network operating configurations of 802.11 transmitters are not suitable for SAR measurements.
Unpredictable fluctuations in network traffic and antenna diversity conditions can introduce undesirable variations
in SAR results. The SAR for these devices should be measured using chipset based test mode software to
ensure the results are consistent and reliable. See KDB Publication 248227 D01v02r02 for more details.
8.7.1 General Device Setup
Chipset based test mode software is hardware dependent and generally varies among manufacturers.
The device operating parameters established in test mode for SAR measurements must be identical to

those programmed in production units, including output power levels, amplifier gain settings and other
RF performance tuning parameters.
A periodic duty factor is required for current generation SAR systems to measure SAR. When 802.11
frame gaps are accounted for in the transmission, a maximum transmission duty factor of 92 - 96% is
typically achievable in most test mode configurations. A minimum transmission duty factor of 85% is
required to avoid certain hardware and device implementation issues related to wide range SAR scaling.
The reported SAR is scaled to 100% transmission duty factor to determine compliance at the maximum
tune-up tolerance limit.
8.7.2 U-NII-1 and U-NII-2A
For devices that operate in both U-NII-1 and U-NII-2A bands, when the same maximum output power is
specified for both bands, SAR measurement using OFDM SAR test procedures is not required for U-NII-1
unless the highest reported SAR for U-NII-2A is > 1.2 W/kg. When different maximum output powers are
specified for the bands, SAR measurement for the U-NII band with the lower maximum output power is
not required unless the highest reported SAR for the U-NII band with the higher maximum output power,
adjusted by the ratio of lower to higher specified maximum output power for the two bands, is > 1.2 W/kg.
When 10-g SAR measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5 is applied to the thresholds above.
8.7.3 U-NII-2C and U-NII-3
The frequency range covered by U-NII-2C and U-NII-3 is 380 MHz (5.47 5.85 GHz), which requires a
minimum of at least two SAR probe calibration frequency points to support SAR measurements. When
Terminal Doppler Weather Radar (TDWR) restriction applies, the channels at 5.60 5.65 GHz in U-NII-
2C band must be disabled with acceptable mechanisms and documented in the equipment certification.
Unless band gap channels are permanently disabled, SAR must be considered for these channels. Each
band is tested independently according to the normally required OFDM SAR measurement and probe
calibration frequency points requirements.
8.7.4 Initial Test Position Procedure
For exposure conditions with multiple test positions, such as handset operating next to the ear, devices
with hotspot mode or UMPC mini-tablet, procedures for initial test position can be applied. Using the
transmission mode determined by the DSSS procedure or initial test configuration, area scans are
measured for all positions in an exposure condition. The test position with the highest extrapolated (peak)
SAR is used as the initial test position. When reported SAR for the initial test position is ≤ 0.4 W/kg, no
additional testing for the remaining test positions is required. Otherwise, SAR is evaluated at the
subsequent highest peak SAR positions until the reported SAR result is ≤ 0.8 W/kg or all test positions
are measured. When 10-g SAR measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5 is applied to the thresholds
above.
8.7.5 2.4 GHz SAR Test Requirements
SAR is measured for 2.4 GHz 802.11b DSSS using either the fixed test position or, when applicable, the
initial test position procedure. SAR test reduction is determined according to the following:
1) When the reported SAR of the highest measured maximum output power channel for the exposure
configuration is ≤ 0.8 W/kg, no further SAR testing is required for 802.11b DSSS in that exposure
configuration.
2) When the reported SAR is > 0.8 W/kg, SAR is required for that position using the next highest
measured output power channel. When any reported SAR is > 1.2 W/kg, SAR is required for the third
channel; i.e., all channels require testing.

2.4 GHz 802.11 g/n OFDM are additionally evaluated for SAR if the highest reported SAR for 802.11b,
adjusted by the ratio of the OFDM to DSSS specified maximum output power, is > 1.2 W/kg. When SAR is
required for OFDM modes in 2.4 GHz band, the Initial Test Configuration Procedures should be followed.
When 10-g SAR measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5 is applied to the thresholds above.
8.7.6 OFDM Transmission Mode and SAR Test Channel Selection
When the same maximum output power was specified for multiple OFDM transmission mode
configurations in a frequency band or aggregated band, SAR is measured using the configuration with the
largest channel bandwidth, lowest order modulation and lowest data rate. When the maximum output
power of a channel is the same for equivalent OFDM configurations; for example, 802.11a, 802.11n and
802.11ac or 802.11g and 802.11n with the same channel bandwidth, modulation and data rate etc., the
lower order 802.11 mode i.e., 802.11a, then 802.11n and 802.11ac or 802.11g then 802.11n, is used for
SAR measurement. When the maximum output power are the same for multiple test channels, either
according to the default or additional power measurement requirements, SAR is measured using the
channel closest to the middle of the frequency band or aggregated band. When there are multiple
channels with the same maximum output power, SAR is measured using the higher number channel.
8.7.7 Initial Test Configuration Procedure
For OFDM, an initial test configuration is determined for each frequency band and aggregated band,
according to the transmission mode with the highest maximum output power specified for SAR
measurements. When the same maximum output power is specified for multiple OFDM transmission
mode configurations in a frequency band or aggregated band, SAR is measured using the
configuration(s) with the largest channel bandwidth, lowest order modulation, lowest data rate and lowest
order IEEE 802.11 mode. The channel of the transmission mode with the highest average RF output
conducted power will be the initial test configuration.
When the reported SAR is ≤ 0.8 W/kg, no additional measurements on other test channels are required.
Otherwise, SAR is evaluated using the subsequent highest average RF output channel until the reported
SAR result is ≤ 1.2 W/kg or all channels are measured. When there are multiple untested channels having
the same subsequent highest average RF output power, the channel with higher frequency from the
lowest 802.11 mode is considered for SAR measurements (See Section 8.7.6). When 10-g SAR
measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5 is applied to the thresholds above.
8.7.8 Subsequent Test Configuration Procedures
For OFDM configurations in each frequency band and aggregated band, SAR is evaluated for initial test
configuration using the fixed test position or the initial test position procedure. When the highest reported
SAR (for the initial test configuration), adjusted by the ratio of the specified maximum output power of the
subsequent test configuration to initial test configuration, is ≤ 1.2 W/kg, no additional SAR tests for the
subsequent test configurations are required. When 10-g SAR measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5
is applied to the thresholds above.
8.7.9 MIMO SAR considerations
Per KDB Publication 248227 D01v02r02, the simultaneous SAR provisions in KDB Publication 447498
D01v06 should be applied to determine simultaneous transmission SAR test exclusion for WIFI MIMO. If
the sum of 1g single transmission chain SAR measurements is <1.6 W/kg, no additional SAR
measurements for MIMO are required. Alternatively, SAR for MIMO can be measured with all antennas
transmitting simultaneously at the specified maximum output power of MIMO operation. When 10-g SAR
measurement is considered, a factor of 2.5 is applied to the thresholds above.

Reduced Conducted Powers Grip Sensor Active
Note:
1. Both burst-averaged and calculated frame-averaged powers are included. Frame-averaged power was
calculated from the measured burst-averaged power by converting the slot powers into linear units and
calculating the energy over 8 timeslots.
2. GPRS/EDGE (GMSK) output powers were measured with coding scheme setting of 1 (CS1) on the base
station simulator. CS1 was configured to measure GPRS output power measurements and SAR to
ensure GMSK modulation in the signal. Our Investigation has shown that CS1 - CS4 settings do not have
any impact on the output levels or modulation in the GPRS modes.
3. EDGE (8-PSK) output powers were measured with MCS7 on the base station simulator. MCS7 coding
scheme was used to measure the output powers for EDGE since investigation has shown that choosing
MCS7 coding scheme will ensure 8-PSK modulation. It has been shown that MCS levels that produce
8PSK modulation do not have an impact on output power.

DC-HSDPA considerations
3GPP Specification 34.121-1 Release 8 Ver 8.10.0 was used for DC-HSDPA guidance
H-Set 12 (QPSK) was confirmed to be used during DC-HSDPA measurements
The DUT supports UE category 24 for HSDPA
It is expected by the manufacturer that MPR for some HSPA subtests may be up to 2 dB more than specified by
3GPP, but also as low as 0 dB according to the chipset implementation in this model.

9.4.4 LTE Band 5 (Cell)
Table 9-21
LTE Band 5 (Cell) Conducted Powers - 10 MHz Bandwidth
Note: LTE Band 5 (Cell) at 10 MHz bandwidth does not support three non-overlapping channels. Per KDB
Publication 941225 D05v02, when a device supports overlapping channel assignment in a channel bandwidth
configuration, the middle channel of the group of overlapping channels should be selected for testing.
