Content overview of Electronics for You Magazine Reading

“Web helps you find what you want to know.
Publications help you discover what you don’t know, but need to know”

- EFY’s Editorial Team’s Content Philosophy

With the rising use of Internet, we are often asked—why should anyone read a publication? Our answer is simple…

Internet is a great medium to find information on a subject you are interested in. A publication on the other hand remains your best option to discover those subjects that you may be unaware about, but are worthy of your attention.

Publications, like other ‘broadcast’ media offer the following advantages:


Research: Journalists interact with industry and experts to find out important trends, so you don’t have to do that—saving your time

Selection: Given limited pages, a panel of experts selects the best content for you—so you get to see only the most important and relevant information

Convenience: The content comes to you—you don’t have to search for it

No Hidden Costs: You don’t have to pay any additional expenses like bandwidth charges or registration fee

Save Time: Overall, the entire value proposition is about expertise, time saving and convenience

What All Aspects Of Electronics Does EFY Cover?

Electronics is a very fast evolving subject. The speed at which technologies are evolving is not matched by the pace at which innovative applications of electronics are being implemented in our businesses and personal lives.

This vastness of electronics presents EFY's editorial team with exciting challenges and opportunities. And, that's why you see EFY covering electronics on four broad levels:

R&D

What is the R&D happening to create new technologies, concepts and products that will define the future of electronics?

Design

How can we design electronics better? What are the latest products, solutions and best practices, which we can adopt to design better and faster?

Manufacture

What's the latest in the world of electronics manufacturing? What are the latest manufacturing equipment and practices that we need to keep an eye on?

Implementation

What are the innovative applications of electronics being implemented across our society? What are the challenges being faced and how are they being tackled?

Nutshell

Electronics For You does not restrict itself to a single dimension of electronics alone--as in design or manufacture. It believes that the true value for our readers lies in being informed about the entire value-chain of electronics, and not just their field of specialisation.

Editorial Section


Electronics For You magazine is divided into 4 major sections:

Technology

This is the backbone of EFY. This section occupies the largest share of editorial pages. Current tech trends and upcoming technologies get covered here. This section caters to the entire spectrum of readers of EFY—be it technical decision makers, business decision makers or DIYers. This section has relevance for global audiences as well.

Make in India

This is the ‘business’ section of the magazine with special focus on business trends affecting electronics manufacturing in India. This section is targeted specifically at readers who have an interest in India’s electronics industry.

eStyle

This is the smallest section of EFY, and it focuses on the consumer side of electronics. Here, our aim is to ensure that our readers who are in sync with topics such as microcontrollers, embedded systems, deep learning, etc—are also aware about gadgets and technologies that can benefit them in their personal lives.

Do It Yourself (DIY)

While ‘Open Source’, ‘User Generated Content’ and ‘Makers’ are relatively new concepts in the tech arena, EFY has been championing them since the seventies. Through the DIY section, EFY has been sharing circuit designs, software code, and DIY projects which have been generated by EFY’s readers and tested at EFY Labs. The fact that every article published in the DIY section is first tested and then published is a key differentiator from various other media which share user generated content as it is.
