SC-234, Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs), was established in response to an Federal Aviation Administration Aviation Rule Making Committee (ARC) recommendations. In joint effort with EUROCAE Working Group 99 (WG-99), SC-234 developed DO-363/ED-130A, Guidance for the Development of Portable Electronic Devices (PED) Tolerance for Civil Aircraft, with publication in December 2016. Change 1 of DO-363/ED-130A was released in March 2019 to clarify the intent of low powered technologies section.
SC-234 and WG-99 also developed DO-307A/ED-239, Aircraft Design and Certification for Portable Electronic Device (PED) Tolerance, with publication in December 2016.
SC-234 was Sunset at the completion of these two documents. However since their release, the expansion in additional spectrum ranges of WiFi 6E adds support for 6 GHz wireless spectrum up to 7.125 GHz. Although the documents are sound, the documents need an updated in order for them to remain unambiguous guidance material.
