EIA standards

Here is a list of Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) Standards. The EIA ceased operations on February 11, 2011, but the former sectors continue to serve the constituencies of EIA. EIA designated ECA to continue to develop standards for interconnect, passive and electro-mechanical (IP&E) electronic components under the ANSI-designation of EIA standards. All other electronic components standards are managed by their respective sectors. ECA is expected to merge with the National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) to form the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA). However, the EIA standards brand will continue for IP&E standards within ECIA. As currently authorized, any ANSI standard designated at ANSI EIA-xxx is developed and/or managed by ECA (and, in the future, ECIA).

Former EIA Sectors:

  • TIA
  • ECA
  • CEA
  • GEIA (TechAmerica)


  • 1-199 1
  • 200-299 2
  • 300-399 3
  • 400-499 4
  • 500-599 5
  • 600-699 6
  • 700-799 7
  • 800-899 8
  • 900-999 9
  • 1000-1099 10
  • 2000-2099 11
  • 3100-3199 12
