Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions (SPD) Working Group

Officially Known As IEEE P2700 Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions 

MIG is pleased to announce that its historic SPD doc is now on its way to becoming a standard recognized by IEEE. Officially known as IEEE P2700 Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions, voting has now commenced. Committee members must also be a member of IEEE to participate and they must enroll as an advanced corporate member of the ballot group by 05-Mar-2014, 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time. There is only one vote per company.
