Technology and Standards

Welcome to the ECA/EIA Standards and Technology Department web site. If you are a regular visitor to the site you will notice a number of changes and enhancements. This site will continuously evolve into what we trust you will find to be a key conduit for technology and standards information for the electronics industry. Hotlinks to information germane to a subject will frequently be employed so that the information will be as current as the source from which it came. You may notice that some of the areas are for committee members only and require a password. If you would like more information on how to get involved in some of the committee work, please contact us.

Accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), EIA provides a forum for industry to develop standards and publications in our major technical areas: electronic components, consumer electronics, electronic information, telecommunications, and Internet security. The department also administrates the Standards and Technology Policy Council (STPC), a body of member companies that explores how emerging technologies potentially will affect segments of the electronics industry. The Council is also involved in creating a technology roadmap.If you have any suggestions on how to make this a more useful site, please contact us.
