List of EIA standards

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from EIA interface)

This is a list of American Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) Standards.

The EIA ceased operations on February 11, 2011, but the former sectors continue to serve the constituencies of EIA. EIA designated ECA to continue to develop standards for interconnect, passive and electro-mechanical (IP&E) electronic components under the ANSI-designation of EIA standards. All other electronic components standards are managed by their respective sectors. ECA is expected to merge with the National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) to form the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA). However, the EIA standards brand will continue for IP&E standards within ECIA. As currently authorized, any ANSI standard designated at ANSI EIA-xxx is developed and/or managed by ECA (and, in the future, ECIA).

 Note: EIA-170 only appears on the cover page of the document, internal pages are labeled RS-170 in the upper right corner. 
 EIA-170/RS-170 applies only to monochrome (black & white) video. 
 The later color video version is RS-170A which shows color burst and the 4 color field sequence of NTSC.
 The RS-170A version is only a tentative standard, and was never formally adopted. NAB Engineering Handbook Seventh Edition.[1]
