The FPC antenna is recommended. The following figure shows the recommended antenna connection method and the dimensions. You can also select standard antennas based on the product assembly method.
To ensure optimal Wi-Fi performance when the Wi-Fi module uses the onboard PCB antenna, it is recommended that there be a space of at least 15 mm between the module antenna and other metal parts.
The stamp-hole module must be mounted by the SMT machine. After being unpacked, it must be soldered within 24 hours. Otherwise, it must be put into the drying cupboard where the RH is not greater than 10%, or it needs to be packaged under vacuum again and the exposure time needs to be recorded (the total exposure time cannot exceed 168 hours).
Storage conditions for a delivered module are as follows:
The module needs to be baked in the following cases:
Important: If this batch of modules is not baked within 168 hours, do not use the wave soldering to solder them. Because these modules are 3-level moisture-sensitive components, they are very likely to get damp when exposed outside. In this case, if they are soldered at high temperatures, it may result in component failure or poor soldering.
In the whole production process, take electrostatic discharge (ESD) protective measures.
To guarantee the passing rate, it is recommended that you use the SPI and AOI to monitor the quality of solder paste printing and mounting.
Perform mounting with the SMT based on the following reﬂow oven temperature curve. The highest temperature is 245°C. The reflow temperature curve is as below:
A: Temperature axis
B: Time axis
C: Liquidus temperature: 217 to 220°C
D: Ramp-up slope: 1 to 3°C/s
E: Duration of constant temperature: 60 to 120s; the range of constant temperature: 150 to 200°C
F: Duration above the liquidus: 50 to 70s
G: Peak temperature: 235 to 245°C
H: Ramp-down slope: 1 to 4°C/s
Note: The above curve is just an example of the solder paste SAC305. For more details about other solder pastes, please refer to Recommended oven temperature curve in the solder paste specifications.

Radiation Exposure Statement
This device complies with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled rolled environment. This device should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 20cm between the radiator and your body.
This radio module must not be installed to co-locate and operating simultaneously with other radios in the host system except following FCC multi-transmitter product procedures. Additional testing and device authorization may be required to operate simultaneously with other radios.
The availability of some specific channels and/or operational frequency bands are country dependent and are firmware programmed at the factory to match the intended destination. The firmware setting is not accessible by the end-user.
The host product manufacturer is responsible for compliance with any other FCC rules that apply to the host not covered by the modular transmitter grant of certification. The final host product still requires Part 15 Subpart B compliance testing with the modular transmitter installed.
The end-user manual shall include all required regulatory information/warnings as shown in this manual, including “This product must be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 20 cm between the radiator and user body”.
This device has got an FCC ID: 2ANDL-WR4. The end product must be labeled in a visible area with the following: “Contains Transmitter Module FCC ID: 2ANDL-WR4”.
This device is intended only for OEM integrators under the following conditions:
The antenna must be installed such that 20cm is maintained between the antenna and users, and the transmitter module may not be co-located with any other transmitter or antenna.
As long as the 2 conditions above are met, further transmitter tests will not be required. However, the OEM integrator is still responsible for testing their end-product for any additional compliance requirements required with this module installed.
