2022 in review

During this busy year, Elektor’s editorial and engineering team has achieved many successes, despite all the challenges posed by global economic conditions. What motivated us to succeed? At all times, the technical needs and concerns of engineers, manufacturing professionals, and students in our global community have been our top priority. When we started every project – whether it’s a really thick edition of Elektor Mag, a webinar, or a live event – we always had our members in mind. Below are some of the notable projects that we have presented.

Elector Lab Talk: Each month, the Elektor Lab team’s engineers and editors brainstorm, exchange engineering ideas, plan future electronics projects, discuss the Elektor Mag, and chat with like-minded electronics enthusiasts. Join Mathias Claussen (Chief Engineer, Elektor) and Jens Nickel (Editor-in-Chief, Elektor) as they discuss a variety of topics, such as rapid prototyping, embedded programming, MCU DIY projects, vintage electronics, and lab equipment.

Electromag: Arduino guest editor version: In 2022, Arduino engineers worked closely with the Elektor content team to create a special edition of Elektor Mag, available in English, German, French, Dutch and Italian. The guest-edited magazine touches on a variety of topics, including Arduino Pro apps, DIY projects, and games with Arduino. It’s a collector’s item!

Summer courses 2022: During the summer of 2022, we’re bringing back the classic Elector Edition: Summer Circuit! The 140-page super dense edition showcased the work of dozens of innovative engineers and makers from around the world. Here are a few of the inspiring projects: two rotary encoders on one analog input, a hand sanitizer dispenser, an ultra-simple stereo amplifier, an external source filter, a simple PWM generator based on an AVR ATtiny13, and an acoustic proximity sensor. The magazine had something for everyone, from embedded enthusiasts to audiophiles to analog hobbyists.


Classic circuit: American style siren: Each year, the engineering and product teams at Elektor work together to bring you exciting new Elektor kits, books, and tools. The American Style Siren Kit is a great example. Based on reader Elektor Ludwig Libertin’s classic Circle from 2003, the easy-to-assemble set is a great addition to your workbench, desk, or bookcase. Once assembled, simply press a button to play one of three different US-style sounds: fire, police, or ambulance.

Elector TV: Tens of thousands of engineers and manufacturers tuned into Elektor TV last year for tutorials, project ideas, in-depth interviews, and product reviews. Here are some of the most popular sights of the year:
