Electronic Design

October 23, 2006

  Greetings, and welcome to the October 23 Electronic Design TOC Newsletter. I am happy to present to you our annual YOUR Most Important Issue Of The Year. You told us what professional issues concern you most, where the government should step up R&D, and how outsourcing is affecting the U.S. electrical engineering industry. We took that information and broke it down to identify what's on YOUR mind. This is YOUR issue. Take a look, and find out what your peers have to say about what it means to be an electronic designer today and what the industry will look like tomorrow.

Don't forget to check out the YOUR issue hot spot at electronicdesign.com/eesurvey. Chock full of more facts and figures from our annual reader survey, the YOUR issue hot spot breaks down the questions and responses that shape the YOUR issue.

Enjoy the issue!
