Thanks for testing them out, glad it works.

Well, yes, so every boards have different characteristics, usually the manufacturer will know them and compile a board file that match to the module.

One note, even it is working to your board, but it might not the optimal case, as these are the general board file (e.g for NFA344A).
So if you need to run peak throughput testing it'll really need help from the manufacturer to provide or guide you to the right file for your module.
