NIST’s Herbert Bennett, Michael Gaitan Help Shape Latest IEEE Microsensors Standard

electronics motherboard microchip_EBizTwo officials from the National Institute of Standards and Technology took part in the formulation of the latest guidance on sensors to earn approval from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association, NIST said Monday.

The IEEE 2700-2014 development team included NIST Fellow and Executive Advisor Dr. Herbert S. Bennett and Dr. Michael Gaitan of the Physical Measurement Laboratory at NIST, as well as representatives from industry, including the MEMS Industry Group and IEEE Electron Devices Society.

The IEEE 2700-2014 sets out a common framework on what terminology, units, conditions and limits to use in the development of MEMS sensors.

The new standard encompasses accelerometers, ambient light sensors, barometer/pressure sensors, gyrometer/gyroscopes, hygrometer/humidity sensors, magnetometers, proximity sensors and temperature sensors, according to the IEEE SA website.
