Hardware Development Magazines
There are far too many manufacturers for me to keep a comprehensive list, but here are some links to sites that have done just that:
- Electronic Engineering Times
EE Times is a weekly newspaper for electronics engineers. It covers primarily industry news and trends, rather than specific design features or product announcements. It also features a good "profession" section, which focusses on issues related to the profession of electronic engineering. EE Times Asia is also available.
- EDN - Electronic Design News
EDN is one of the oldest and most prestigious EE publications, and it's very strong in design articles. It it is the best magazine to read to keep up on the technical aspects of the industry.
- Electronic Products
Electronic Products is a monthly publication that features new-product announcements. Paging thru this magazine is a great way to keep up on new component releases. Though most new products are electronic components, there are also sections for SBC, design tools, software, and mechanical components.
- ECN - Electronic Component News
Product news & information for the electronic designer. ECN's suite of products satisfies the divergent information needs of the electronics market. We're a resource, educational tool, source guide - in short, a knowledge builder. ECN's Electronic Industry Telephone Directory lists 30,000 companies in one national edition, ensuring EITD as the phonebook of choice for the Electronics OEM.
- Electronic Design
Electronic Design's on-going objective is to observe and report the latest breakthroughs in EOEM technology. By providing this information Electronic Design has been the strategic partner of system designers and suppliers for the past 50 years, helping to bring them together so that they can deliver more competitive products to market faster. A solid publication for working engineers, with a mix of hands-on articles, new-product information, and great user-contributed design ideas.
- Circuit Cellar Ink
Circuit Cellar, The Magazine for Computer Applications, is the only magazine that is focused on the needs of hands-on designers, engineers, and programmers of microcomputer hardware and software. Circuit Cellar magazine presents tools, techniques, and creative solutions that are of immediate, practical value.
Other Electronics-Related Publications
- Control Design
Control Design stands alone as the only magazine dedicated to the automation information needs of industrial machine builders, those original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that build the machines that make industry work.
- Desktop Engineering
Desktop Engineering is the computer magazine published specifically for engineers. Created solely for engineering professionals in all major manufacturing and process industries, Desktop Engineering focuses on the latest hardware and software for engineers. Each issue provides engineering solutions through extensive product reviews, comparisons, tutorials, technology updates, application stories, product resource guides, news, and new product reports.
- GPS World
GPS World is the only monthly magazine that examines the Global Positioning System from inside and outside. GPS World explores the technology combinations that produce synergies, solve problems, create markets, and benefit users.
- Machine Design
Machine Design, the magazine of applied technology, provides design engineers with information on new technologies, industrial developments, research and development activities, products, and engineering procedures for designing manufactured products. Articles concentrate on practical applications, new developments and solutions to design problems.
- Medical Design
Medical Design is the only magazine devoted to Medical Design of Technology Systems. It is ideal for mechanical, electromechanical, and electronics engineers engaged in the design, development, and testing of medical products. Each issue contains information regarding new design methodologies, standards, OEM components, and trends that focus on products devised for the healthcare field.
- Microwaves & RF
Dedicated to educating senior-level design engineers and engineering managers, both domestic and foreign, who work on all types of RF and microwave systems, subsystems and components, it combines all types of high-frequency theoretical and applications-based problem solving design and product editorial with industry news.
SMT Magazine addresses technical topics related to the surface mount process for design engineers working in a variety of end markets from military to medical and computer peripherals to contract manufacturing. Articles cover the materials, processes, components and equipment used in surface mount and provide a balance of cutting edge topics and everyday manufacturing concerns.
- Test & Measurement World
Test & Measurement World covers the electronics testing industry, providing how-to information for engineers who test, measure, and inspect electronic devices, components, and systems.
- Compliance Engineering
