Hobby Electronics, Computing, Kits and Projects. Online version of Australia’s only electronics magazine, and is primarily directed to professionals, trades people and enthusiasts in the electronics, electrical, computer and related fields.
Silicon Chip Electronics Magazine
Projects to build do it yourself to save money, to learn new skills or simply for the fun of it!. Serviceman’s Notebook Actual cases, often unusual, from the bench of a full-time serviceman. Vintage Radio bringing back to life the discards of previous generations.
Each Silicon Chip design is carefully checked and tested and readers with the appropriate construction skills should be able to duplicate the design and have it work in the same or similar manner to the prototype.
Since its founding in 1988, Circuit Cellar has delivered exactly what its paying subscribers demand-intensive, exploratory articles about hardware and software methods for embedded-control systems.
Circuit Cellar – The Magazine for Computer Applications
Circuit Cellar Ink, the best magazine devoted to hardware and embedded computer development, or “What’s Inside the Box”.
Index to Circuit Cellar Ink – Dave Tweed
“By joining forces with Elektor International Media in 2009, we’ve taken the meaning of “global contest” to new levels. Engineers hail from the U.S., Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, India, and more, to see who has the most skill and ingenuity to take their design ideas from an innovative concept to a winning solution!”
“The Portable Power Quality Meter uses an RL78 MCU to read power factor, total harmonic distortion, line frequency, voltage, and electrical consumption information and stores the data for analysis.”
Portable Power Quality Meter
Circuit Cellar has many Workspace Reviews too. Here is the workspace of Ralph Berres built for his radio and metrology projects.
Circuit Cellar has always been written by engineers, for engineers.
An e-magazine for newcomers and everyone who likes to be involved with electronics., aimed at teaching electronics from the beginning with courses, tests and interactive questions.
Talking Electronics – Colin Mitchell
The thrust of the course is for you to be able to design your own circuits and eventually move into the wonderful world of electronics as a career.
“There are many different types of power supplies, including batteries, plug packs, switch-mode supplies and a basic transformer and bridge”
The Power Supply – Basic Electronics
“However the simplest power supply consist of a transformer, one or more diodes and a large filter capacitor (electrolytic).”

Radio-Electronics was an American electronics magazine that was published under various titles from 1929 to 2003.You can Read them all here …
Radio Electronics Magazine at Archive.org
Hugo Gernsback, sometimes called The Father of Science Fiction, started it as Radio-Craft in July 1929. The title was changed to Radio-Electronics in October 1948 and again to Electronics Now in July 1992. In January 2000 it was merged with Gernsback’s Popular Electronics to become Poptronics.
Gernsback Publications ceased operations in December 2002 and the January 2003 issue was the last.
Over the years, Radio-Electronics featured audio, radio, television and computer technology. The most notable articles were the TV Typewriter (September 1973) and the Mark-8 computer (July 1974). These two issues are considered milestones in the home computer revolution.
