Compliance Information

FCC NOTICE

The following statement applies to all products that have received FCC approval.

Applicable products bear the FCC logo, and/or an FCC ID in the format FCC ID: GSS-

VS13761 on the product label.

This mobile device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This mobile device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this mobile device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. This mobile device has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be colocated or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

RF EXPOSURE INFORMATION (FCC SAR)

DEVICE MEETS THE GOVERNMENT’S REQUIREMENTS FOR EXPOSURE TO

RADIO WAVES.This device is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal

Communications Commission of the U.S. Government.

The exposure standard for wireless mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6

W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the poser required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output.

The highest SAR value for the device as reported to the FCC when tested for use when worn on the body, as described in this user guide, is 1.23 W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among device models, depending upon available accessories and FCC requirements.)

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 i

While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various devices and at various positions, they all meet the government requirement.

The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this device with all reported

SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this device is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display

Grant section of www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/ after searching on FCC ID: GSS-VS13761.

For Canada

This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.

Cet appareil numérique de la classe B est conforme à la norme NMB-003 du Canada.

This Category II radiocommunication device complies with Industry Canada Standard

RSS-310.

Ce dispositif de radiocommunication de catégorie II respecte la norme CNR-310 d’Industrie Canada.

Cwarning statement

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

Son fonctionnement est sujet aux deux conditions suivantes: (1) Cet appareil ne doit pas provoquer d’interférences néfastes, et (2) cet appareil doit accepter toutes les interférences reçues, y compris celles pouvant provoquer un fonctionnement indésirable.

IMPORTANT NOTE: IC Radiation Exposure Statement

This EUT is compliance with SAR for general population/uncontrolled exposure limits in IC RSS-102 and had been tested in accordance with the measurement methods and procedures specified in IEEE 1528. This equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 0.5cm between the radiator & your body.

This device and its antenna(s) must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

The County Code Selection feature is disabled for products marketed in the US/

Canada.

For product available in the USA/ Canada markets, only channel 1~11 can be operated. Selection of other channels is not possible.

CE SAR Information

THIS MOBILE DEVICE MEETS GUIDELINES FOR EXPOSURE TO RADIO WAVES.

Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to assure the protection of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure guidelines for mobile devices employ a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the ICNIRP guidelines is

2.0 W/kg averaged over 10 grams of tissue. Test for body worn SAR, the positions of the device are at a minimum of 1.5 cm from the body with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. The actual SAR level of an operating device can be below the maximum value because the device is designed to use only the power required to reach the network. That amount changes depending on a number of factors such as how close you are to a network base station. The highest SAR value under the ICNIRP guidelines for use of the device at the body is

0.43 W/kg. Use of device accessories and enhancements may result in different SAR values. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting and testing requirements and the network band.

CE Conformity for European Countries

The device complies with the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC and Low

Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC.

Following information is only for EU-member states:

The mark shown to the right is in compliance with the Waste Electrical and

Electronic Equipment Directive 2002/96/EC (WEEE).

The mark indicates the requirement NOT to dispose the equipment as unsorted municipal waste, but use the return and collection systems according to local law.

If the batteries, accumulators and button cells included with this equipment, display the chemical symbol Hg, Cd, or Pb, then it means that the battery has a heavy metal content of more than 0.0005% Mercury, or more than 0.002%

Cadmium, or more than 0.004% Lead.
