NO RATINGS
I agree with the point about fledgling engineering teams at startup companies.  Exposure to other more experienced, cross-functional members on standards committees can rapidly develop new engineers and also help reduce the 'hard and expensive' lessons of going back to the design drawing board when simple mistakes were not avoided.

Littlefuse and the standards developers.

NO RATINGS
Of course it makes sense for the LittleFuse company to participate in standards development. Not only do they have quite a bit of experience in the field, but since they are mainly a producer of circuit protection devices, it is certainly to their advantage to help prevent any really dumb requirements, typically driven by emotions rather than any data, which some may choose to present. It is seldom useful to have the emotionally driven ideas from the technically ignorant entering into engineering decisions.  We have a few examples of that mode already.

Latest Analysis
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Tune in to the Continuing Education Center next week for a comprehensive course in using the Raspberry Pi development platform.
Researchers in Australia think new types of plastic materials instead of silicon may be the key to building more efficient solar cells.
