TTTC’s goals are to contribute to its members’ professional development and advancement, to help them solve engineering problems in electronic test, and to help advance the state-of-the art. All TTTC activities are led by volunteer members.
Membership in TTTC is open to all individuals interested in test engineering at a professional level. There are NO dues for TTTC membership and noparent-organization membership requirements; however, there are substantial reductions in fees for TTTC-sponsored meetings and tutorials for members of IEEE and/or IEEE Computer Society. (IEEE and IEEE/CS do have member fees.)
In addition to the benefits of personal association with other test professionals and the opportunity to serve on a wide range of committees, TTTC members receive TTTC Newsletters and announcements. TTTC sponsors a numberof Technical Activity Committees that address emerging test technologytopics. These TACs guide a wide range of activities in their topic areas, including standards activities and technical meetings.
Under TAC guidance, TTTC initiates, nurtures and encourages new test standards. TTTC-initiated groups have produced numerous IEEE standards, including the 1149 series used throughout the industry. TTTC also sponsorsseveral well-known conferences and symposia and holds numerous regional and topical workshops. In addition to spreading technical knowledge abouttest, TTTC meetings help advance the state-of-the-art. TTTC also sponsors tutorials on current and emerging test topics in conjunction with its largermeetings.
The TTTC Web Site at http://tab.computer.org/tttc offers samples of the TTTC Newsletter, information about technical activities, conferences, workshops and standards, and gives links to the Web pages of a number of TTTC-sponsored technical meetings as well as a link to a membership home page directory.
