It’s been a busy year for element14 and the online social community for engineers is ending 2011 on a high note with the launch of element14 TV, the industry’s first online television channel designed for electronics engineers and tech enthusiasts.
The new dedicated channel offers instant access to an expansive range of information-rich content in one, easy-to-search destination. Anchored by The Ben Heck Show, a leading online TV tech series, this “YouTube for engineers” offers a programming line-up spanning electronics how-tos, Arduino tutorials, user-generated videos, informational videos from leading electronics component and subsystem providers, and the latest in technology and product overviews.
If your schedule permits, we’d love to get you on the phone with Diane Kibbey – global head of the community – to talk about the new channel, the growth of the community over the past year and exciting plans for video down the road.

Dave Jones from the Electronics Engineering Video Blog shows us what tools he recommends for a starter electronics lab. He makes a few surprisingly inexpensive recommendations for multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, bench power supplies, soldering stations, and many other tools and supplies. I, for one, am taking very careful notes on this excellent video since I’m moving from basic to more advanced electronics design. [via]

What’s in a name? David L. Jones of EEVBlog thinks he’s found an Easter egg in the performance characteristics of the 555 timer chip which reveals the basis of the “555″ in its name. Build his circuit (schematic at video 13:25), fire up the scope and see if you agree!
