IEEE TEMPLATE AND/OR TEMPLATE DESCRIPTION LANGUAGE (TDL) ITEM
As described in the Standard, a company or user can create templates for use by all to whom the template description files are distributed. The template description file is an ASCII text file, written in TDL, and having a file name extension of .tdl (see IEEE Std 1451.4-2004 subclause 6.1). IEEE Standard 1451.4-2004 annex A contains several examples of the template description file. A template description file may be submitted to IEEE for consideration as IEEE template by the manufacturer who developed the template of significant use, under the following condition:
Requesters should use the registration request process overview document when preparing requests. All templates and TDL items must pass the syntax check program.
The overview document and syntax checker are located in the TDL programmer's start-up kit (.zip).†

|Manufacturers may elect to use non-IEEE templates for their own 1451.4 compliant products. Manufacturers choosing to use unpublished, manufacturer templates are solely responsible for the distribution and effective usage of these templates.
