ISTO would like to formally congratulate the following programs for their continued success and efforts to develop technologies that remain current/relevant in today’s world.
OpenCAPI Consortium – Cheers to 5 Years
The OpenCAPI Consortium continues making great strides in releasing specifications. The Consortium released four new specifications and four new engineering notes in addition to two updated specifications. All these documents are now released formally to all OpenCAPI members and can be downloaded from the OpenCAPI website (https://members.opencapi.org/) The Work Groups, Technical Steering Committee and Board of Directors continue to make progress not only with the specifications and engineering notes; but also Open Memory Interface education on the latest trends in memory disaggregation regarding research trends and applications from researchers in industry and academia.
Zhaga Consortium – Lighting the way for 10 Years!
The Zhaga Consortium is an industry-wide cooperation aimed at the development of standard specifications for the interfaces of LED light engines to help foster innovation and adoption of LED lighting.
Over the past 10 years, Zhaga has created 25 books of standards covering Integrated LED Light Engines and the various related modules for all manner of indoor and outdoor applications. And their specification work continues to develop specifications based on the inter-related themes of interoperable components, smart and connected lighting, and serviceable luminaires to streamline the LED lighting supply chain and simplify LED luminaire design and manufacturing.
Printer Working Group – PWG – Still Relevant after 30 Years
The Printer Working Group (PWG) offers a collaboration platform for organizations including printer manufacturers, print server developers, operating system providers and print management application developers to make devices and applications work on operating systems enabling printing.
Some of the standards created over the past 30 years include IPP Everywhere, standards supporting AirPrint and Wi-Fi Direct Print solutions, and other standards that offers state-of-the-art printing capabilities, output quality, and ease of use including solutions that enable printing without the need to download and install driver software or configure print queues. The PWG continues to develop standards allowing traditional and mobile operating systems to print including without custom drivers.
