Electronic Design magazine is a trade magazine and website that is written for electronics and electrical engineers, embedded developers and programmers.[4] It covers a wide range of electronic topics from machine learning and embedded software to power and analog design technology.


Electronic Design was started in 1952 by Hayden Publishing.[5] It became part of the VNU Magazine Group that was acquired by Penton Media in 1989.[6][7] Penton Media was acquired by Informa PLC, a British multinational publishing, business intelligence, and exhibitions group, in 2019.[8] Endeavor Business Media acquired a number of publications from Informa including Electronic Design.[9]

EE Product News[edit]

In July 2007, Penton Media ceased publication of EE Product News in the electronics OEM publishing market. With a controlled circulation of 96,000, it merged with Penton's Electronic Design magazine, yielding a combined controlled circulation of 275,000. EE Product News was founded in 1941, as a monthly publication.[10]


The magazine's feature sections include Technology Reports, Engineering Essentials, Design Solutions and Engineering Features. The Ideas for Design (IFD) section has been popular since its inception in 1968.[11] Many of these IFDs were collected together and published, initially by the Hayden Books.[12][13][14][15] There have been a number of special issues published that collected together IFDs[16] and including some available online.[17]

Its TechXchange section contains digital issues that incorporate different content including articles, videos, webinars and E-Books.[18]

The publication has had some notable contributors including Bob Pease. Bob was an engineer with National Semiconductor Corporation who wrote the popular monthly column, "Pease Porridge".[19] It covered his experiences in the world of electronic design and application. Other regular contributors include Cypress Semicondutor's Dave Van Ess[20] who also covered analog technology.


The print edition and digital (PDF) editions of Electronic Design is free for qualified, U.S.-based design engineers, managers and business and corporate management in the electronics industry.[21] The website is available to all with premium content available to registered users.[22]
