What electrical and electronic magazines can be recommended in order get up-to-date information about the latest technologies? I would like magazines listing from hardware hacking to proper professional design.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I like Circuit Cellar. They have a digital version so you don't have piles of old magazines stacking up. \$\endgroup\$ – tcrosley Jun 3 '11 at 0:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @tcrosley - So do Elektor and Nuts & Volts. And the others maybe too \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Jul 24 '11 at 6:24

Everything by UnwiredBen and Vineeth are great, but dont forget online websites for the freshest hacks.

My particular favorite Hack A Day is a great resource

Of the "free" ones, there are:

EDN

EETimes

Electronics Product News

I will give you a warning, however. If you subscribe to any of these, they WILL send you lots of spam emails. Do not, under any circumstances, give them your normal email address!

I always like what they have to say in Circuit Cellular. I'm not sure how much "breaking" technology they have since they're not trying to sell you on new products like many other free EE magazines. They definitely always have articles that seem relevant, immediately implementable in any designs I do, and more technical than other magazines targeted at hobbyists.

Some mention the EEvblog. I'm sorry to say, but the EEVblog with it's rambling is all nothing but plain bla bla and nothing to learn. You better not copy he's schematics if you want to build something that work. He doesn't even know how to make an emitter follower that doesn't oscillate. (For the record, it's not the op-amp that causes this circuit to oscillate. It's the emitter follower itself who's oscillating. It would even oscillate without feedback.)

If you wanne seem him going down? Check out this one.

Base stopper resistors? Huh? Anyone.

And apart from that. He sounds like a cat.

LEDs Magazine {electronic, free, good}

electronic design update Also electronic, free, good

electronic design website. Mailout material offered.

As for "spam". Most reputable sites have a working opt out policy and the sort of mail they send is in ant case liable to be of high interest and relevance to electrical engineers and fellow travellers. I'm happy to have such sent to my main mailbox, where I can filter into folders etc as desired.

More later ...

There are groups who manage dozens of magazines - electronic only and real-paper.
