IEEE-SA - Newswire February 2018
A monthly update on standards and related solutions.
Newly Published Standards
  • IEEE 11073-10207™-2017, Health informatics--Point-of-care medical device communication Part 10207: Domain Information and Service Model for Service-Oriented Point-of-Care Medical Device Communication

    The purpose of this standard is to enable vendors of point-of-care medical devices and medical IT systems to constitute networked medical device applications from the perspective of domain experts. Therefore, this standard provides tools to virtually model point-of-care medical devices. Moreover, it defines a service-oriented architecture to access those networked-based point-of-care medical devices.

  • IEEE 802.15.8™-2017, Standard for Wireless Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications for Peer Aware Communications (PAC)

    This standard defines PHY and MAC mechanisms for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN) and Peer Aware Communications (PAC) optimized for peer-to-peer and infrastructureless communications with fully distributed coordination. PAC features include: discovery for peer information without association, discovery signaling rate typically greater than 100 kbps, discovery of the number of devices in the network, scalable data transmission rates, typically up to 10 Mbps, group communications with simultaneous membership in multiple groups, typically up to 10, relative positioning, multihop relay, security, and operational in selected globally available unlicensed/licensed bands below 11 GHz capable of supporting these requirements.

  • IEEE 1450.4™-2017, Standard for Extensions to Standard Test Interface Language (STIL) (IEEE Std 1450-1999) for Test Flow Specification

    This standard specifies extensions to STIL.0 that define the description of certain test flow and binning components of an integrated circuit (IC) test program in a test-hardware-independent manner. These extensions provide language constructs and semantics necessary to describe both the test program flow and the sequencing data needed to compose a test program to run on an Automated Test Equipment (ATE) platform.

  • IEEE 112™-2017, Standard Test Procedure for Polyphase Induction Motors and Generators

    This standard covers instructions for conducting and reporting the more generally applicable and acceptable tests of polyphase induction motors and generators. Many of the tests described may be applied to both motors and generators, as needed, and no attempt is made to partition the test procedure into clauses and subclauses that separately apply to motors or to generators.

New Products and Solutions
  • IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Standards (Active & Archive) Collection: VuSpec™

    This VuSpec™ includes 52 active standards and 67 archive standards, measurement techniques, test procedures, instrumentation, equipment and systems characteristics, interference control techniques and components, educational tutorials, computational analysis, and spectrum management.

  • IEEE Electric Machinery Standards Collection: VuSpec™

    Electric machinery standards provide manufacturers and designers with the specifications they need to know on-the-job, while providing tests and diagnosis for various types of electric machines. This VuSpec™ collection contains 30 Active and 18 Archive IEEE standards, Guides and Recommended practices used worldwide pertinent to the generation of electric energy and its conversion into other forms of electric or mechanical energy.

  • Pharma Supply Block Chain Research Report

    IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) commissioned a one-of-a-kind independent research study to examine the State of Blockchain Adoption on the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain. The report offers detailed insights on unresolved financial, regulator, policy, and protocol issues while unraveling the expectations and commitments of partners when participating on a blockchain-driven pharmaceutical supply chain.
