• Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee
    Mar 03 - 04, 2020
    Spokane, Washington

    The SDL Subcommittee’s objective is to develop standards for software distribution and loading. This includes continued development of high-speed data loaders, high-density storage media, and loading protocols. The SDL Subcommittee prepares and updates standards for file format, media type, part numbering, distribution, and terminology. This subcommittee also defines the interfaces between the software data loader and the target hardware. The SDL Subcommittee sets standard formats for Loadable Software Parts (LSPs) so that all the requirements of configuration management of LSPs may be accomplished.
