Cell Phones

All cell phone models must be tested to meet the SAR requirements for most all countries around the world. All bands and technologies are tested or evaluated against the requirements. The phone is tested using a phantom head on both the right and left side of the head in a touch configuration. The phone is also tested with the phone touching the ear and tilted away from the cheek 15º. The phone is then moved to a flat phantom to simulate the phone next to the body. It is tested with a specified separation distance, which is included in the user’s guide. The US requirements are listed in OET bulletin 65 Supplement C, KDB 447498, KDB 648474 and KDB 941225. The testing procedure for a handset is described in IEEE1528-2005. The EU requirements are listed in IEC 62209 Parts 1 and 2.
