Compliance and conformance: testing to new IEEE standards
Your Work Group has spent many months and thousands of man-hours developing a specification for the latest technology widget. The specification has been ratified and is now a standard destined to dramatically impact your industry. Member companies have reviewed the details and begun product development. However, many of these companies have come back to the Work Group with questions such as:
“How do I test the frequency – the range in this specification is too wide?”
“My engineers found an edge case. I don’t see it addressed in the specification?”
“Our customer is demanding second source. How can I ensure our products interoperate?”
These types of questions are often not addressed in specification development, yet have a major impact on market acceptance of the standard. How can standards bodies, product manufacturers and test equipment/service providers conquer these issues? By ensuring that a credible, independent third-party conformance assessment program is available to serve the needs of all involved. Continue reading.
IEEE-ISTO at DAC 2012

Program Profile Series - Nexus 5001™ Forum
Nexus 5001™ Forum was established in 1999 to support the use and proliferation of the IEEE-ISTO 5001™ standard. Spanning the semiconductor, development tools and automotive electronics industries, Nexus 5001™ Forum membership comprise industry leading silicon suppliers, tools developers, IP companies, and end users.
Initially focused on the stringent requirements of microprocessor debug tools for automotive powertrain applications, Nexus 5001™ Forum has evolved its overall goal to enable the standards based development of state-of-the-art, easy-to-use, and high-performance IP, microcontroller, processor, and SoC instrumentation and debug tools. Membership in the Nexus 5001™ Forum is open to any interested party involved in instrumentation or debug related work.
On 25 June 2012, Nexus 5001 Forum announced the ratification of IEEE-ISTO 5001-2012, the Nexus 5001™ Forum Standard for a Global Embedded Processor Debug Interface. The new version of the standard adds support for two new interfaces – IEEE 1149.7™ (JTAG) and the Nexus trace over a high speed Xilinx® Aurora SerDes (Serializers/Deserializers) interface, delivering an array of benefits such as improved on chip analysis capabilities and shortened time-to-market. Read the complete release.
