Electronic Design provides leading-edge technical information to electronics engineers and engineering managers around the world; individuals responsible for the design and development of electronic original equipment manufacturers’ products and systems.
Electronic Design – Magazine
Electronic Design keeps its readers abreast of rapid technological advances and their applications at the chip, board and systems levels.
Analog & Mixed Signal – Here you will find new articles of Bob Pease too. See The Best of Bob Pease at NSC
Robust Electronic Design – John R Barnes
“As an engineer, I am always working on new things. So I am going to make some mistakes. But I find it very embarrassing to have to redo something because of a mistake that I could and *should* have avoided. …..”
John R. Barnes KS4GL
“My first book, Electronic System Design: Interference and Noise Control Techniques, concentrated on designing electronic equipment to work.”

Robust Electronic Design, Inc.
A Cross-platform and free software for numerical computation. Useful for industrial, scientific and technical computing. A versatile mathematical tool for Engineering.
Scilab Numerical Computation – Scilab Consortium
Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions. It has a high level programming language allowing access to advanced data structures, 2-D and 3-D graphical functions.
- Graphs and Networks
- Interface with Fortran, C, C++, Java
- LabVIEW to Scilab Gateway
- Graphics export in many formats
- LaTeX / MathML annotations
Xcos is a graphical editor to design hybrid dynamical systems models. Models can be designed, loaded, saved, compiled and simulated.
The OpenEEG project is about making plans and software for do-it-yourself EEG devices available for free (as in GPL). It is aimed toward amateurs who would like to experiment with EEG.
OpenEEG hardware – Amplifiers
I found the amplifier designs extremely good as a learning material.
Amplifier schematic [55kb] (aka analogue board; contains two amplifiers) and digital board schematic [48kb] as images.
EDN.com, the Internet home of Electronic News, EDN, and Electronic Business, delivers a three-dimensional view of the electronics industry via breaking news coverage, strategic business information, and in-depth technical engineering content.
EDN – Electronic Design News
This site is the essential online resource for the full spectrum of information needed by design engineers, engineering managers, and upper management through each phase of the design cycle, from product-concept development to manufacturing.
“The first issue of Electrical Design News, the original name. was published May 1956 by Rogers Corporation of Englewood, Colorado.
The magazine and its website – EDN Network – cater to the needs of the working electrical engineer and cover new technologies and electronic component products at an engineering level. Columns discuss everything from managing engineers and engineering projects to technical issues faced in the design of electronic components, systems, and developing technologies.”

“This site is an attempt to document some of the physics experiments and science projects which I have conducted in my laboratory at home. These experiments include high vacuum, electron optics and electrostatics. There is also a virtual museum of scientific instruments, antique lamps and antique valves. …”
Teralab Electronics projects
“My father was interested in T.E.Lawrence and used to visit Pat and Joyce Knowles who looked after Lawrence’s cottage. Because they lived way out in the country side, they were not connected to the electricity supply. Pat generated electricity to charge a small room full of accumulators using solar panels and windmills. Pat encouraged my scientific interest by giving me old electronic equipment to play with.”

These are high tech jigs, fixtures and instrumentation/automation gizmos that bill built. Electrical gizmo builder for the UNLV Physics Dept.
Bill O’Donnell – Tech Gizmo Builder
These projects are advanced and not for a beginner student or newbie hobbyists. These pages are knowledgable and will help students and DIY enthusiasts understand more about Lasers, Precision Temperature Control and stepper motors among other things.
Auto Fill Circuit for Laser Cooling Loop – Ethernet Data Logging
Here is an automation solution with a ethernet usage. The code and diagrams are also there. This is something that covers many aspects of engineering in one project. Try such things out to learn, only after you have mastered the basics.
“The Ethernet connection is based on an XPORT form Lantronics. Basically it lets you use a serial port to send things over Ethernet. A PIC microcontroller with an A/D converter digitizes the pressure, the pressure set point, the high and low pressure alarm points and the supply voltage (since everything is ratio-metric). “
