A week ago, we posted news of the delay that the Raspberry Pi Foundation faced because of a requirement that their boards be tested
to comply with EU regulations. Now, the word is in, and the Raspberry Pi passed those tests without needing any modifications
. From their post describing the ordeal: "The Raspberry Pi had to pass radiated and conducted emissions and immunity tests in a variety of configurations (a single run can take hours), and was subjected to electrostatic discharge (ESD) testing to establish its robustness to being rubbed on a cat. It’s a long process, involving a scary padded room full of blue cones, turntables that rise and fall on demand, and a thing that looks a lot like a television aerial crossed with Cthulhu."
