IEC 60728-12Ed. 1.0 (2017-06) Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 12: Electromagnetic compatibility of systems

applies to the radiation characteristics and immunity to electromagnetic disturbance of cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services and covers the frequency range 0,15 MHz to 3,5 GHz. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2001. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) IEC 60728-12 with its methods of measurement and EMC performance requirements is explicitly dedicated to “under operating conditions (in situ)” to ensure the ongoing EMC integrity of cable networks.
b) The first intermediate frequency range (1st IF range) for satellite signal transmission was extended to cover now frequencies from 950 MHz up to 3‍ 500 MHz.
c) The method of measurement and the requirements for in-band immunity were extended taking into account the new EMC environment due to the allocation of broadband wireless services in the frequency band 694 MHz to 862 MHz. As a consequence, the limits of in-band immunity were specified for analogue and additionally for digital signals in this frequency range.
d) The substitution method of measurement (power method) was deleted.
e) EMC measurements below 30 MHz were deleted.
f) New Annex D “Measurements at other distances than the standard distance of 3 m”.
g) New Annex E “GPS based leakage detection system for cable networks”.

IEC 62827-2Ed. 1.0 (2017-06)Wireless power transfer - Management - Part 2: Multiple device control management

IEC 62827 defines a wireless power management protocol for wireless power transfer to multiple devices in a wireless power management system. Various functions of wireless power management systems are justified. The wireless power management frames and messages that work between the management block of a power source and the management block or the coupler block of a device, or the coupler block of a power source, are defined as well to execute various functions. Also, the procedures for each functionality are described based on its frames and messages.

 

 

IEC PAS 63095-2Ed. 1.0 (2017-06) The Qi wireless power transfer system - Power class 0 specification - Part 2: Reference Designs Version.1.1.2

 comprises reference designs for 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).

 

 

IEC 62680-1-2Ed. 2.0 (2017-06) Universal serial bus interfaces for data and power - Part 1-2: Common components - USB Power Delivery specification

defines a power delivery system covering all elements of a USB system including: Hosts, Devices, Hubs, Chargers and cable assemblies.  This specification describes the architecture, protocols, power supply behavior, connectors and cabling necessary for managing power delivery over USB at up to 100 W. This specification is intended to be fully compatible and extend the existing USB infrastructure.  It is intended that this specification will allow system OEMs, power supply and peripheral developers adequate flexibility for product versatility and market differentiation without losing backwards compatibility.
USB Power Delivery is designed to operate independently of the existing USB bus defined mechanisms used to negotiate power which are:
- [USB 2.0], [USB 3.1]in band requests for high power interfaces.
- [USBBC 1.2]mechanisms for supplying higher power (not mandated by this specification).
- [USB Type-C 1.2]mechanisms for supplying higher power

 

 

IEC 62481-1-2Ed. 1.0 (2017-07) Digital living network alliance (DLNA) home networked device interoperability guidelines - Part 1-2: Architecture and protocols - Extended Digital Media Renderer

introduces a number of device classes to identify specific roles that connected endpoints implement in the network. Devices can act as content sources (e.g., Digital Media Servers, Push Controllers), and as content sinks (Digital Media Renderers or Digital Media Players). This document addresses this issue and, specifically, it describes a device class for an Extended Digital Media Renderer (XDMR) and implementation guidelines for combining a Digital Media Renderer and a UPnP Media Server Control Point.

However, there is no manager in the home network. Thus, a standardized network management procedure is required for suitable network operation. This document specifies the management procedure as sequences. The sequences are typical procedures of management. This document also describes implementation requirements, and the protocols between each component.

 

 

IEC 63080 Ed. 1.0 (2017-07) Accessibility terms and definitions

contains a list of currently used terminology to describe accessibility and terms that writers of standards need when writing and designing International Standards. It is important to standardize and define a recognized list of the terms already used and in existing ITU Recommendations and Resolutions, along with those in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). Without such a list, there could be confusion not only on the part of writers and implementers of standards, but also by the public at large. It is also important to eliminate terminology that is no longer used, offensive, and demeaning to persons with disabilities (PWD) and others.
