ISO/IEC 17025-2019 «General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories» obliged the entities responsible for testing, calibration and sampling for subsequent tests to objectively assess all of the possible risks. In June 2019 there was ISO 31010:2019 «Risk management — Risk assessment techniques» accepted with updated risk management interpretation. And on December 17 the same year Rosstandart issued an order under ¹1405-ct whereby starting from March 1, 2020 GOST R ISO/IEC 31010–2011 had to be replaced with GOST R 58771–2019 «Risk management. Risk assessment technologies» which also contained updates. How can these changings make impact on ISO/ IEC 17025–2019 and whether they may consider positive you will know from this article by professor S. Levin.

USB 2.0 continues to be one of the most widely-used systems buses in all manner of systems, due to its reliability, simple plug-and-play usability and costeffectiveness. While it’s not the fastest version of USB, with bit rates up to 480 Mb/s, it covers a wide range of applications. Although formal compliance testing isn’t a requirement in all cases, comprehensive electrical testing and debug are important steps to ensuring reliable operation. This article gives a breakdown of the key tests.

Accumulated experience in measuring instruments calibration taking into account inadequacy errors has made it possible to identify an essential factor of the «dead end» in cosmology. But strictly speaking there is no «dead end». There is usual discordance of mathematical models built basing on measurement data from various sources aggravated by violations of the conditions for statistical methods applicability when inadequacy errors of mathematical models can be no longer neglected.

The Semiconductor Industry is always searching for new special materials, dielectric solutions and new device geometries for scaling down the device size further and further. Lateral and vertical heterostructures of 2D materials for instance have led to new revolutionary tiny and low power electronics. It’s the typical problem of electrical characterization in the low current range: the need to identify the attainable device performance under different conditions for low power / low leakage currents MOSFETs. The problem is practically solved by using a certain number of source measure units (SMUs), special instruments capable of sourcing current or voltage while measuring both current and voltage.
