0303p10a.jpgNEC Research Institute ( is a great resource for finding research papers. When I used to search for a specific paper, I would have to go to several different sites and oftentimes none of them would be able to find it. With this page, you just type in the author you're looking for and it uses an algorithm to search for him or her in a variety of digital libraries. When the paper you're looking for has been located, you can view it in a Word or PDF format.

The Electronics Industry Knowledge Network ( is a clearinghouse of engineering information. The site contains up-to-date news and technical resources, but what I really go there for are the news groups. A forum of engineers with various experiences, these communities are a good place to throw out questions you have about design problems and get unbiased feedback from people who have dealt with similar challenges.

Portable Design ( provides information for people who design portable electronic devices. My company does a lot of work in this field, and this site is a good resource for things like power consumption information and design tips for battery packs. One of the page's best features is the occasional article that breaks down a portable device into the individual steps required to develop it.

National Instruments ( supplies computer-based measurement and automation technologies. There are a lot of companies on the Web that do this, but what makes this one unique is its technical support section. If you have a question about a product, you can just type it in using an on-line form. After you enter this information, the form is sent to a customer service representative and you are given his or her contact phone number. That way when you call, the representative is already familiar with your problem and ready to help. It's a real time-saver.

Andromed Inc. (Saint-Laurent, QC, Canada; designs and produces diagnostic and telemonitoring equipment for cardiac and pulmonary applications. The firm's product line includes the Stethos electronic stethoscope, androgenic switches, and photospirometers.
