Registration Authority

IEEE offers Registration Authority programs or registries which maintain lists of unique identifiers under standards and issue unique identifiers to those wishing to register them. The IEEE Registration Authority assigns unambiguous names to objects in a way which makes the assignment available to interested parties.

UNIQUE REGISTRATION NUMBER (URN) APPLICATION

IEEE has defined a common digital communication interface standard for mixed-mode transducers utilizing a single wire serial bus technology developed by Maxim/Dallas Semiconductor Corporation.

All IEEE 1451.4-2004 transducers may be operated in a multi-drop network environment. Addressing is controlled by a unique registration number (URN). (see IEEE Std 1451.4.2004 subclause 5.4, figure 2) Commercially purchased node devices contain a URN, and manufacturers installing these devices in their products do not need to purchase additional URNs.

Users of IEEE 1451.4-2004 wishing to emulate the operation of a purchased node device with an ASIC or micro-controller may purchase a block of 4096 URNs through the IEEE Registration Authority, to be used in their proprietary designs. Each device must contain a URN to control access in the multi-drop environment.

Requestor/company hereby agrees to indemnify and hold IEEE harmless from any claim arising out of Requestor's use of assignments or misuse of any assigned number. Signor agrees to notify IEEE of any changes of address or contact information. IEEE Registration Authority is unable to process any application without acceptance of the indemnification statement.
I AcceptI Do Not Accept

The application to request an URN block can be faxed or mailed. Please indicate the number of blocks of 4096 URNs you would like to purchase. IEEE does not honor requests for applicant-specified URNs.

Requests for a URN block will be honored within 30 business days of receipt of the fee.

Make sure that all sections of the form are completed.

NOTICE: There may be intellectual property issues associated with the use of URNs that requesters are responsible to ascertain and satisfy. They may require the purchase of a license(s) and to pay a royalty to third parties who claim ownership to the intellectual property. It is strongly recommended that before purchasing an URN to review the IEEE-SA patent database to obtain information that may be relevant to that URN.
