6. Discussion Topics

6 a) Report from TTSC meeting: {Slide 12}

  • We should try to find Elections Officers ourselves, from within the WG - "it's a simple task". Concern remains that it could limit availability for WG offices as Elections Officers still have to be IEEE-SA members and can't also be nominees for any of the elected offices.  Ian has a list of those members that are potentially eligible.
  • Jeff Rearick has offered the template emails he has used and may be able to help if we cannot find two Elections Officers from within the WG. 
  • TTSC was encouraged by that groups were actively engaging with each other. Need to make sure that continues and isn't just occasional events.

6 b) Overview of P1687.1

7. Any Other Business

  • {Slide 13}
  • None.

8. Today's Key Takeaways

  • P1687.1 is probably the activity that STAM needs to work most closely with.

9. Glossary Terms from This Meeting

  • See P1687.1's definitions on Slide 31 of the pack presented by Jeff today, referenced in 6b above.
  • Carried over:
    • "Interface" is missing.
      • No obvious IEEE accepted definition.
      • 1687 has definitions for specialised forms: Device Interface and Instrument Interface.
      • We may need specialised forms for Software Interface and Hardware Interface.
    • 1687.1: Transformation, Retargetting.
    • IEEE 1856: Sense - "Sensor" done, Acquire, Analyze not really defined.
    • SJTAG: Discussion on forums - http://forums.sjtag.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=782
    • Device - do we mean a packaged device? May be many devices in a package. "Device" is often used as a modifier, e.g. "device package", "device identification".
    • Use Case Context, Application Context
    • Legacy Infrastructure, SJTAG Infrastructure (placeholders for now, really for working group to define).
    • "Generators": May need to be qualified as "Test Generators" (used by the integrator/tester) and "Model Generators" (used by IP providers, interface designers, etc.).
    • AccessLink and DataLink descriptions will need to be revised.
