UBM Tech's EDN And Microcontroller Central Wins Top Honors In Two Industry Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Tech's EDN and Microcontroller Center won top honors in the Folio Magazine's Eddie awards and the min's Editorial & Design Awards. The Eddie awards are the largest competition in publishing and the only competition for all magazines and their websites recognizing editorial excellence. The min's Editorial & Design Awards program recognizes excellence in content and design among consumer, business-to-business and specialized information media brands. 


"It's a tremendous honor to be recognized in these two prestigious programs," said Kathy Astromoff, CEO, Electronics, UBM Tech. "Our mission is to create outstanding solutions to help electronics companies excel when designing their products and bringing them to market.  These awards are a testament to our talented team and our commitment to the global electronics industry."

EDN is the go-to source for expert information and resources for electronics engineers worldwide, providing in-depth technical and how-to information and technology updates, while raising the bar on learning, design tools, networking, mentoring and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, and technical discussion.

Microcontroller Central is sponsored by NXP Semiconductors and powered by DeusM.  The community-based website consists of blogs, message boards, live chats, whitepapers and other educational resources to help readers address the joys and challenges of microcontroller-based design.  Microcontroller Central allows engineers to celebrate design success stories, discuss design experiments and create an environment for change.

"Our editorial and development teams are delighted by the recognition from both Folio and min," said Patrick Mannion, Brand Director at UBM Tech. "At the same we're even more excited by the fact that with both EDN and Microcontroller Central we're only scratching the surface of the experience UBM Tech can provide as an integral part of the electronics ecosystem."
