Module EN 300 328 V2.2.2 and EN/IEC 62368-1 DoC Availability on Bluetooth Wireless Knowledge Base
On December 20, 2020, EN/IEC 60950-1 safety standard will be withdrawn and fully replaced by EN/IEC 62368-1, requiring manufacturers to comply with the new standard for the presumption of conformity. Furthermore, as of February 6, 2020, RF regulatory standard EN 300 328 V2.2.2 has replaced EN 300 328 V2.1.1 with a transition period ending on August 6, 2021. After the transitions, products on the market must comply with the updated standards.
Silicon Laboratories is committed to perform any required delta testing with the affected wireless modules (except for certain parts reaching EoL) according to the new standards and release the updated test reports and declarations of conformity (DoCs) before the end of the listed transition periods.
The parts planned to be tested are listed in the table below:

Transmitting to open port in EFR32MG12
Leaving the RF output open can result high voltage swings at the PA output which in turn can cause permanent degradation in the performance over time.
That being said, there is an internal protection circuit which decreases the output power in such scenario and the mismatch can be also decreased by adding a low-pass filter.
