Releases Revised Standard for ESD Control Programs
The ESD Association (ESDA) has released a revised version of its standard covering the design and implementation of an ESD control program (ANSI/ESD S20/20-2007). This article from Conformity covers the release in more detail;
CISPR 12 Released for EM Disturbances from Vehicle Mounted Electronics
CISPR 12 – Ed. 6.0 still entitled “Vehicles, boats, and internal combustion engines – Radio disturbance characteristics – Limits and methods of measurement of off-board receivers.” Limited to an upper frequency of 1GHz still and over the same measurement distances and positions, it's difficult to see what exactly has changed since the 2001 release?
CISPR-16 Updates Released
With the release of CISPR/TR 16-4-1-am2 – Ed. 01 in April entitled “Specification for radio disturbance and immunity measuring apparatus and methods – Part 4-1: Uncertainties, statistics, and limit modeling – Uncertainties in standardized EMC tests. Available to purchase from the IEC;

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL): The Next Best Thing?
It's getting so common these days that the articles no longer even bother expanding the acronym. Is HIL the next best ting or another passing fad that will have it's heyday then fade into the sunset? This areticle in automotive design line clearly has a HIL bias, but gives a good background to the topic.
Active Safety Systems Lower the Value of Used Vehicles
This was the surprising headline from IVsource, however, as that's a pay-to-view channel it's not easy to determine if this is factual or not. Certainly a EU study (available free using the link below) shows a general apathy towards safety systems beyond the "essential" and even here these are expected as standard fit (not extras). Could this be a turning point for the less intuitive and to some extent unproven as safety features, such as lane departure warnings (some see this as being a method of continuing to drive when tired?).
42V Refusing to go Quietly
Is this the technology that never was still going around the houses? It appears there are still some advocates of 42V out there, although systems installed appear to have stalled in 2002 and in some places retreated? Those who are still wondering when this might happen can find an update in this Automotive Design Line article.
Website Sponsorship 2007-2013
The arrangement for page sponsorship has changed with sponsorship to last until March 2013. The rates are similar to 2 years of the old sponsorship rates and are intended to fund the site hosting only over this period, hence not to generate profit. Several pages have already been taken but many are still available. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a page please get in touch by return.
Old issues of the newsletter are available on the website for
those who are new subscribers or non-subscribing readers.
If you have any relevant news you would like to add to the
next newsletter please send contributions to: news@AutoEMC.net.
