Electronics Puzzler by Industry Guru Forrest M. Mims III

Jameco Releases New Electronics Component Catalog


Belmont, CA — Jameco Electronics' new full-color electronic components catalog features a new puzzle designed by guru Forrest M. Mims III for Jameco's "Double E" customers.

"There are crossword puzzles for word people and Sudoku for numbers people, so Jameco thought there should be a puzzle for electrical engineers. When they asked me to create one, I jumped at the chance," said Mims, who is convinced the puzzle will stump many despite its simple solution.

Mims is an author and columnist most famous for his Engineer's Mini-Notebook series of instructional books. He is widely regarded as one of the world's most prolific citizen scientists. The December 2008 issue of "Discover Magazine" named Mims one of the "50 most important, influential and promising people in science."

The new Jameco puzzler is only available in the Jameco catalog. North American residents can get their free catalog by calling 1-800-831-4242 or by visiting the Jameco website.
