Press release

"LPCY0007 V1.6" and a date code of 1337 is silkscreened on the board in the FCC photos.

RTL8197D is the SoC used.. RTL8812AR is assumed to be used.. and RTL8192CE is probably the 2.4GHz radio.

Per Amped Wireless' press release and product page...

  • The device has one dual-band antenna and one dedicated antenna for each of the two bands.
  • This device uses four 5GHz 700mW 2-Stage amplifiers, two 2.4GHz amplifiers, and four advanced LNAs.
  • The processor clock speed is 660MHz.

The FCC ID and IC IDs are presumed to be ZTT-RTA15 and 10233A-RTA15, respectively.
