The revolution and advancement of Wi-Fi technology are led by efforts of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) and based on the IEEE 802.11™ series of wireless connectivity standards, which continues to dramatically impact how we communicate and access information.
Whether your organization is seeking ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for the first time or renewing your current accreditation, there are a few frequently overlooked or misunderstood sections of the ISO/IEC 17025 standard to pay close attention to.
This article addresses China’s latest requirements, including technical details, for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz equipment.
This article addresses the latest changes to the KS C 9814-1 (and CISPR 14-1) standard.
A careful review of empirical research, multiple ESD standards, and return on investment provides a strong case for evaluating the installation of ESD flooring in server rooms and data centers.
Speed and determinism in design, made possible by time-sensitive networking (TSN) technology, is prompting the development of new TSN profiles for a multitude of applications across industry sectors. The IEEE 802.1™ Working Group of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) offers numerous TSN profiles for applications, including the automotive, manufacturing, and aviation industries.
The 16.6 ohm implementation of contact CDM (LICCDM) recently published in ANSI-ESD Standard Practice 5.3.3 is shown to produce waveforms of similar shape, Ifail, and Ipeak vs. Ceff dependency as JS-002. The non-monotonicity of JS-002 at low voltages is overcome using LICCDM. A path to joint standardization with air discharge testing is proposed.
In this article, we detail the key changes between MIL-STD-464C and MIL-STD-464D, the recently-released update to the standard.
Are you a new safety manager shopping power converters and wondering about the features listed under the functional safety section? Or are you a seasoned design and release engineer looking to start on a new ISO 26262 module? Either way, this article offers guidance in applying functional safety concepts to your next automotive design.
This article discusses and contextualizes the EU Conflict Minerals Regulation for the electronics sector. While electrical equipment manufacturers that place products on the EU market are not specifically targeted under the Regulation, the law applies to them if their operations involve importing conflict-implicated metals and minerals into the EU (e.g., for use in manufacturing their products). Regardless, the Regulation raises implications for any electrical equipment manufacturer that distributes and sells products in the EU, specifically when it comes to publicly reporting on uses of conflict minerals. The EU’s proposed “transparency platform” is detailed in this regard.
