EN-Genius Network was a premier source for electronic design engineers working in the fields of power management, audio/video, acquisition, connectivity, networking, wireless applications, dsp, programmable logic, and green engineering. sub-ZONEs covering these specific areas enable the designer to focus directly on products of interest, with timely and insightful reviews. News headlines and a calendar of events keep readers current, knowledgeable and informed, while companion ZONEs providing detailed technical notes and guest columns -- along with the usual trenchant commentary by our editors -- offer a wealth of information in an independent arena free from the limited detail permitted in print publications.

Most Practical Piece of Test Equipment

ICS Electronics Model 8055 Ethernet-to-Instrument Interface GPIB has been around since 1975, and although it's been supplanted in many test racks by the likes of USB and LXI, there are still a lot of GPIB instruments kicking around. This clever product extends the life of legacy equipment, additionally opening doors for true Internet-enabled remote control.
