60 Years of Ideas for Design (.PDF Download)

This year, we celebrate Electronic Design's 60th Anniversary with a special look at our most popular department, Ideas for Design. In the exclusive downloadable PDF below, we reprint classic submissions from 1956, 1962, 1972, 1982, 1993, and 2002 just as they originally appeared in our magazine. Analog/Power Editor Don Tuite offers some commentary on each of these gems, explaining how they were unique to their time—or perhaps something that would still work today.
