Design intent and any number of features can alter the way in which any item or information is controlled under the federal regulations. Here are just a few examples.

Amplifier Example

Amplifiers, depending on the strength and original design intent can be captured on the USML, CCL or be EAR99

For demonstrations purposes – classification information is from the Department of State Website Commodity Jurisdiction Determinations List

License required to ship anywhere

ECCN 3A001.b.2.a: GaN MMIC power amplifier capable of providing 100 watts of output power from 3.1 to 3.5 GHz

License required for most destinations and limited license exceptions are available

EAR 99: Operational Amplifier, quad, low noise

May be shipped to most destinations – except for Cuba, Iran, North Korea, North Sudan, and Syria

Camera Example

For demonstrations purposes – classification information is from FLIR
