Since its acquisition by AspenCore, EE Times has seen major editorial and publishing technology investment and a renewed emphasis on investigative coverage. New features such as The Dispatch, which profiles frontline engineers and unpacks the real-life design problems and their solutions in technical yet conversational reporting, have created audience excitement and attracted comparisons to classical long-form music and popular culture journalism.


Ownership and statusEdit

EE Times was launched in 1972 by Gerard G. Leeds of CMP Publishing.[2] In 1999, the Leeds family sold CMP to United Business Media for $900 million. After 2000, EE Times moved more into web publishing. The shift in advertising from print to online began to accelerate in 2007 and the periodical shed staff to adjust to the downturn in revenue.

In July 2013, the digital edition migrated to UBM TechWeb's DeusM community platform.[3]

On June 3, 2016, UBM announced that EE Times, along with the rest of the electronics media portfolio (EE Times, EDN,, TechOnline and was being sold to AspenCore Media, a company owned by Arrow Electronics for $23.5 million.[4] The acquisition was completed on August 1, 2016.


EE Times is free for qualified design engineers, managers and business and corporate management in the electronics industry. It is also available online, the EE Times website offers news, columns, and features articles for semiconductor manufacturing, communications, electronic design automation, electronic engineering, technology, and products. In November 2012, UBM Electronics announced that the December 2012 issue of EE Times would be the last in print. In 2013, EE Times will be an online product only.

In 2018, EE Times rolled out a refreshed website, resurrected its print edition in Europe, and launched a new radio show, EE Times On Air, available an hour after the live broadcast as a podcast.[citation needed]
