Electronic Design, founded in 1952, is the largest published print magazine (circulation 141,000) for the electronic design industry published in the USA by Penton Media.
The magazine presents complete coverage of the industry from emerging technologies to large-scale trends. In Electronic Design's Techview sections, technology editors present the latest news and products in each industry: Analog & Power, Digital, EDA, Communications, Test, and Wireless.
The magazine's feature sections include Technology Reports, Engineering Essentials and Engineering Features. While Technology Reports summarize specific product trends, the Engineering Feature covers larger industry happenings. Engineering Essentials helps designers stay on top of the latest standards. And the Embedded in Electronic Design section, which appears monthly, covers embedded hardware and software systems.
Among the magazine's most popular sections are the Design Solution and Ideas For Design sections. Design Solutions are contributed by field experts and Ideas For Design are innovative solutions from readers. With the recent integration of Penton's Electrical Engineering Product News (EEPN), Electronic Design also covers components.
Electronic Design also publishes six special issues per year. In June, editors analyze the most prominent industry trends for the Megatrends issue. For Electronic Design's "Best" issue, editors highlight the year's most significant designs, events and products. "Your Issue" zeros-in on issues ED readers deemed most important in Electronic Design's annual reader survey. Each January, editors predict what technologies will play an important role in the upcoming year for the Technology Forecast issue.
The hot topics of Power and Wireless are each devoted a special issue: "One Powerful Issue" and "Wireless Everywhere."
Don Tuite covers analog and power; Dan Harris covers digital; Louis E. Frenzel covers communications, wireless and test; and William Wong covers embedded, systems and software. Columnist Bob Pease was a chief scientist at National Semiconductor.
