New Publications


IEC 62943:2017 Ed. 1.0 (2017-03) Visible light beacon system for multimedia applications

aims at establishing a unified standard concerning the lower communication layer common to multimedia applications, and does not deal with the upper communication layer which depends upon individual applications. This document specifies a unidirectional visible light communication protocol using visible light, named "visible light beacon system for multimedia applications".



IEC 62680-3-1 Ed. 1.0 (2017-03) Universal Serial Bus interfaces for data and power - Part 3-1: Universal Serial Bus 3.1 Specification

defines the latest generation USB industry standard, USB 3.1. The specification describes the protocol definition, types of transactions, bus management, and the programming interface required to design and build systems and peripherals that are compliant with this specification. USB 3.1 is primarily a performance enhancement to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 resulting in providing more than double the bandwidth for devices such as Solid State Drives and High Definition displays. It refers to Enhanced SuperSpeed as a collection of features or requirements that apply to both USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 bus operation. Additionally, where specific differences exist with regard to the USB 3.0 definition of SuperSpeed features or requirements, those differences will be uniquely identified as SuperSpeedPlus (or SSP) features or requirements – generally, “SuperSpeed” is in reference to 5 Gbps operation and “SuperSpeedPlus” is in reference to 10 Gbps operation.



IEC 63028 Ed.1.0 (2017-03) Pre release version Wireless power transfer - AirFuel alliance resonant baseline system specification (BSS)

This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2017-03-31 to 2017-05-12. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 63028:2017 defines technical requirements, behaviors and interfaces used for ensuring interoperability for flexibly coupled wireless power transfer (WPT) systems for AirFuel Resonant WPT. This document is based on AirFuel Wireless Power Transfer System Baseline System Specification (BSS) v1.3.



IEC 62766-4-2 Ed. 1.0 (2017-04) Consumer terminal function for access to IPTV and open internet multimedia services - Part 4-2: Examples of IPTV protocol sequences

provides informative examples of features defined in IEC 62766-4-1.



IEC 62394 Ed. 3.0 (2017-04) Service diagnostic interface for consumer electronics products and networks - Implementation for ECHONET

specifies requirements for service diagnostic software to be implemented in products that incorporate a digital interface. The Service Diagnostic Interface (SDI) requires an external controller (exclusive or general-purpose/PC) into which service diagnostic software can be loaded. Parts of the controller software should be standardized while other parts should be unique to the manufacturer. The SDI is based upon ECHONET specification version 2.11, ECHONET Lite specification version 1.11, and APPENDIX Detailed Requirements for ECHONET Device objects Release G, because this interface will be used in future products. The use of this connection and existing communication protocols enable implementation in products at a low cost, with maximum flexibility and efficiency.


IEC TS 62229 Ed. 2.0 (2017-05) Multimedia systems and equipment - Multimedia e-publishing and e-book - Conceptual model for multimedia e-publishing

describes a conceptual model for multimedia e-publishing and e-book. The conceptual model is specified from the standardization point of view in order to clarify the functionality of e-publishing/e-book components and the relationships between them and to define e-publishing services. The model provides the key technology to be standardized in the e-publishing environment. The modelling is not intended for actual implementation of a system or system components for e-publishing. The modelling is expected to be used as a reference for discussing and developing new standardization work on multimedia e-publishing and e-books and, therefore, to contribute to the expansion of the international and domestic markets for multimedia e-publishing and e-book.



IIEC 62766-1 Ed. 1.0 (2017-05)
Consumer terminal function for access to IPTV and open Internet multimedia services - Part 1: Generalg

 defines general common elements and specifies the structure of the IEC 62766 series, the scopes of, and relationships between the other parts.



IEC TS 63033-1 Ed. 1.0 (2017-05) Car multimedia systems and equipment - Drive monitoring system - Part 1: General

document specifies the model for generating the surrounding visual image of the drive monitoring system.


IEC PAS 63095-1 Ed. 1.0 (2017-05) The Qi wireless power transfer system power class 0 specification - Parts 1 and 2: Interface definitions

 defines the interface between a Power Transmitter and a Power Receiver, i.e. Power Class 0 Base Stations and Mobile Devices. Power Class 0 is the WPC designation for flat-surface devices, such as chargers, mobile phones, tablets, cameras, and battery packs, in the Baseline Power Profile (≤ 5 W) and Extended Power Profile (≤ 15 W).
