Standardization of Optical Disk Cartridges since
Second Programme of Work of TC31, 1992-1996
The second programme of work adopted by TC31 comprises the development
- further 130 mm ODCs for different applications,
- one standard for a 130 mm ODC of the WORM
- further 90 mm ODCs for different applications,
- two standards for 300 mm ODCs of the WORM
- one standard for a 120 mm ODC for different applications.
As a result TC31 produced seven standards, four for 130 mm ODCs
and three for 90 mm ODCs, specifying a single format of the CCS
In addition two standards for 300 mm were produced, and one standard
for 120 mm:
ECMA-183, ECMA-184 and ECMA-201 have been adopted by ISO/IEC JTC 1
under the fast-track procedure as International Standards ISO/IEC
13481, ISO/IEC 13549 and ISO/IEC 13963, resp.
ECMA-195 has been used by SC 23 as basis for ISO/IEC 13842. The
second edition of ECMA-195 is identical with this International
ECMA-238, ECMA-239 and ECMA-240 have been adopted by ISO/IEC
JTC 1 under the fast-track procedure as International Standards
ISO/IEC 15486, ISO/IEC 15498 and ISO/IEC 15485, resp. ECMA-238
is based on ISO/IEC 14517.
ECMA-189 and ECMA-190 have been used by SC 23 as basis for ISO/IEC
13614 and ISO/IEC 13403 resp.
