  1. P2964 IEEE Standard for Datasheet Parameters and Tests for Integrated Gate Drivers
    1. Scope: The standard provides datasheet parameters and tests for integrated gate drivers, which include non-isolated gate drive, level-shifted gate drive, and isolated gate drive. The standard scope includes terminology, mnemonic, and pins’ description; parameters and definitions; and test methods and conditions to obtain the parameters.
    2. Purpose: Currently, different gate drive manufacturers provide datasheets with their own templates. As a result, it is difficult to compare the gate drivers using datasheet parameters since gate drivers’ parameters have different names, test methods, and conditions.
    3. Stakeholders: Gate driver manufacturers, gate driver users (e.g. power electronics converter manufacturers), academia and research institutes, and everyone who is using gate drivers in their applications.

  2. Unofficially Started IEEE Standard for Datasheet Parameters and Tests for UVC LED Air Disinfection Chambers
    1. Scope: The standard provides datasheet parameters and tests for UVC LED air disinfection chambers to ensure a minimum level of germicidal efficacy while ensuring the resulting solutions are commercially viable, offer an industry-wide testing protocol to standardize the evaluation of such products, and consider the differences in UVC LED technologies and products, in particular the performances and tolerances specified by the manufacturers.
    2. Purpose: The current COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the lack of readiness to managing pandemics globally and the need for disinfection of air and surfaces responsible for the transmission of pathogens. UVC light is a proven technology. The lack of standards around UVC LEDs, in particular, their use in air disinfection, brings tremendous risk of products emerging with LEDs that do not provide sufficient air treatment.
    3. Stakeholders: UVC LED and air disinfection chambers manufacturers, users (e.g. company producing HVAC systems, lighting fixtures, or using UVC LED systems), academia and research institutes, and everyone who is using UVC LED in their applications.
