    The International Electrotechnical Commission technical committee for PIM measurements says that their document should be available this December.

    The group's technical committee (TC46/WG6) has been meeting for a number of years and the first release of a document on measurement standards should be well received.

    While many of us will be at PCIA in Dallas, this international committee will be meeting at the same time in Myrtle Beach.

    The committee says their task is:
    "To prepare test methods and to investigate relevant limits, for Passive Intermodulation in the RF and microwave frequency range for passive components (i.e. connectors, cables, cable assemblies, waveguide assemblies and components...). To closely liaise with TC 102 for matters relevant to antennas and with SC 48B for connectors with respect to PIM. To liaise with other relevant committees, subcommittees, working groups, organizations and individuals, in order to ensure the widest appropriate awareness of, and the greatest relevant participation in and contribution to the work being carried out."

    We are looking forward to the release of this specification. It has been a LONG time in the making!
