Dear Electronics Colleague:

2014 has started with a roar. The electronics industry came off an exciting CES featuring the new "hot spot"-your car as the innovations in electronics keep on coming. A group of scientists from my alma mater, the University of Illinois, used "Kickstarter" to crowd fund an innovative way of developing circuits, teaching STEM curriculum and hacking electronics hardware design.  This is a new way to breadboard and develop hardware. Check out the full link here. We will be providing some teaching using these tools some time this year after the first products are commercialized. Finally, we installed several new analytical tools that make sure that we can continue to serve you as geometries shrink and devices get more complicated. 

Wishing a Healthy and Successful New Year!
