IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has formed two working groups that focus on mixed-signal language extensions and interoperability of large scale integration, package and board design. The goal of these two working groups is to standardize the stages of electronic design automation.
Ethernet’s success in the marketplace is undeniable, and market-driven standardization has been instrumental in its success. It’s a cycle of synergistic innovation and market growth that has been spinning for decades. Ethernet has become entwined with almost every pattern and process of every-day life around the world. Whether a personal computer (PC) has a direct connection to a router or an indirect connection through a “Wi-Fi®” access point, it is highly likely that Ethernet is providing the connection to the Internet.
Two New Standards-Development Projects Started to Improve Smart Grid Fault Management and Other Functionality
The IEEE has recently approved two new projects to advance the standardization of phasor data concentrators (PDCs) with standards to improve fault management and other smart grid functionality.
The IEEE Standards Associated has announced the winner of their “I Spy Ethernet IEEE 802.3™” contest, Rahul Kar, an IT student from Calcutta, India. Mr. Kar’s submission represented smart cities based on the Internet of Things.
New IEEE 802.11ac Specification Approved Due to the Need for Higher, Multi-User Throughput in Wireless LANs
IEEE has approved the IEEE 802.11acTM-20131 specification to achieve higher multi-user throughput in wireless local area networks (WLANs). This new revision intends to improve WLAN user experience more than 10 times the speed compared to the previous version, with data rates up to 7 Gbps in the 5 GHz band.
