Silicon Chip is a monthly electronics magazine and is listed in the Literature Section.

Since its inception in 1987 it has described a variety of electronic kits for enthusiasts to construct.

Examples of these will be found under Models.

Founded: 1987

In November 1987 Leo founded Silicon Chip  and it has gone on to become the leading Electronics magazine in this country and it is widely regarded by publishers in Europe and the USA. Silicon Chip is probably the most prolific producer of DIY kit designs in the world, being one of the few technical publishers with engineers on staff and with their own laboratory, including state-of-the-art hi-fi test equipment.

Leo Simpson (B.Bus.) has been involved in electronics companies since 1963 and spent many years at Electronics Australia, rising to become Managing Editor in 1986, and also being responsible for magazines such as “Your Computer”, “ETI” and “Sonics” at Federal Publishing Company.

This manufacturer was suggested by Gary Cowans.
