Electronics Standards

Electronics standards apply to both electronic components and the more complicated equipment built out of them. With standards for resistors, transducers, capacitors, and other components, as well as also addressing specific requirements of high reliability electronics such as those used in automotive/aerospace or military applications, electronic component standards address from the simple to the complex.

Semiconductor Standards cover the entire supply chain, from design and fabrication, to testing, following through to design specifications for devices using semiconductors, as well as their testing and use-cases. Covering everything from the simplest devices to devices designed for the demanding environments of avionics, semiconductor standards address the whole semiconductor industry.

Electronic Component Standards

US and international standards for electronic components, capacitors, transducers, surge protectors, LEDs, and resistors find wide application in consumer products, vehicles, medical devices, sensors and controls for industrial use and more. A representative selection of nearly one hundred standards published in recent years covering electronic components are provided here. IEC and IEEE, two standard developing organizations focused on electronics, have contributed a great deal to standardizing their design, manufacture, testing, use, and end-of-life procedures.

High Reliability Electronics Standards

High reliability and military electronics standards address the design and production of electronics that have to meet demanding requirements due to how and where they are used. With military applications and the aerospace industry as obvious sources of such demand, the automotive industry contributes its demand for extremely reliable electronics, expanding the field further.

IEC Extended Versions and Test Report Forms

IEC publishes extended versions (EXV) and test report forms that supplement many of their electronics safety standards. A Test Report Form (TRF) is a document prepared by a National Certification Body (NCB) allowing a test laboratory to record the evidences and the results of the tests and analysis made on a product. Its primary intent is to support the emission of a Certification Body Certificate. All the required information to document a test or analysis are included in the TRF and its use is ease by a common structure fully aligned with the structure of the IEC or ISO standard.
Extended versions are bundles which contain a standard and the required supplement to it. Some standards are required to be read in conjunction with another standard, i.e. reference document, and each collection contains both so you don't have to hunt down the correct version of your desired standard.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
