Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) has appointed Phil Ling to take over from Alastiar Winning, who is leaving to work for a distributor. Phil is a popular and technically knowledgable editor, who has worked on a number of projects since his last editorial role at New Electronics. Whilst it’s never good for a magazine to lose an editor, Phil is a great person to hire, and we feel confident that this appointment will help the title grow and develop.
