The Embedded Muse

Since 1997 the Embedded Muse has provided hardware and software tips about building embedded systems.

Free twice/month e-newsletter about embedded systems, now in its 22th year. No hype, just down-to-earth technical talk about how to build embedded systems - both firmware and hardware. 28,000 subscribe. Muse subscribers are eligible for our monthly giveaways: oscilloscopes, debugging tools, etc.

"One of the first questions we ask prospective employees is if they read The Embedded Muse," - Mike Katz, Northrup Grumman.

"We've had several excellent candidates from The Embedded Muse job ads, including a few hires. You do better than recruiters!" Andy Kunz, Team Spektrum

Freebies: Eevery month we run a giveaway of something cool. Past giveaways include bench oscilloscopes, USB scopes and logic analyzers, books, development boards, power supplies and much more. Only Embedded Muse subscribers are eligible to win. Enter the contest here.

This month's giveaway is a 10 MHz function generator - or, rather, a bag of parts that can be assembled to be a function generator. I bought this from eBay a couple of years ago and just haven't had time to put it together. It could be a great project to do with a young 'un. There is no plastic box, and I can only presume all of the components are included. The contest closes at the end of January, 2019.
