Draft Standard Approved:
IEEE P1149.1™: Standard Test Access Port and Boundary Scan Architecture
IEEE P1149.1™, Standard Test Access Port and Boundary Scan Architecture, defines test logic that can be included in an integrated circuit to provide standardized approaches to testing integrated circuits, the interconnections between circuits once they’ve been assembled, and observing or modifying circuit activity during the component's normal operation.
The published standard will be available in May 2013.

Setting the Standard: Jay Iorio’s Reddit AMA
President Barack Obama. Bill Gates. The Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman. Louis C.K. Neil deGrasse Tyson. Woody Harrelson. Stephen Colbert. Chris Hadfield. Jay Iorio. What do all these people have in common? They’ve all led memorable “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) sessions on “the front page of the Internet,” reddit.com.
With his roles as technology strategist for IEEE-SA, architect and manager of the IEEE Island in Second Life, and musician, Jay Iorio proved to be the perfect candidate for a reddit AMA.

A Month Dedicated to Women’s Achievements
Several events being held this month celebrate women, including the Global Marathon For, By, and About Women in Engineering. The event featured online chats and webinars about ways women can build successful careers in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Check out this IEEE Roundup for information about this other events celebrating women’s achievements.
The Future of Computing
The use of high-performance computers has exploded, but people who work with these machines are encountering roadblocks. Maximizing storage capacity on individual chips and generating enough electricity to power these massive machines are just some of the challenges that manufacturers face. IEEE’s newest working group, Rebooting Computing, has set its sights on improving all aspects of high-performance computing.
