Most Elektor community members will endeavor to prototype a design and then bring it into production. The November/December 2023 edition of Elektor Mag offers various helpful articles for pro engineers and makers alike. We cover prototyping solutions, low-volume PCB production, IoT simulation, an Arduino Nano waveform generator project, MEMS microphone design, AI solutions, and much more. Let’s dive in! 
Elektor nov/dec 2023: prototyping and production
Elektor Nov/Dec 2023

Inside Elektor November/December 2023

Prototyping designs and producing PCBs and electronic solutions are core aspects of the electrical engineering process. Prototyping enables you to test your ideas in real-world environments, helping you identify and fix design flaws and functionality issues early on. And PCB production is a key step in the manufacturing journey. This edition of Elektor Mag is an excellent starting point.
