Philips ME Construction Kits
Many of our readers — especially the older generation — will remember the legendary EE (Electronic Engineering) experimenter kits. They were part of the Philips (not ‘Phillips’) product line for many years, from 1963 until well into the 1980s. Many electronics professionals owe their interest in the field to these kits. The first kits were primarily intended to promote Philips electronic components among hobbyists, but in the later years, the complexity of the designs increased and the range of kits was oriented more towards educational use.
