Elektor (ἠλέκτωρ) is also an ancient Greek name or epithet of the Sun, see Helios.

Elektor is a monthly magazine about all aspects of electronics, first published as "Elektuur" in the Netherlands in 1960, and now published worldwide in many languages including English, German, Dutch, French, Greek, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese (native and Brazilian) and Italian with distribution in over 50 countries. The English language edition of Elektor was launched in 1975 and is read worldwide.

Elektor publishes a vast range of electronic projects, background articles and designs aimed at engineers, enthusiasts, students and professionals. To help readers build featured projects, Elektor also offer PCBs (printed circuit boards) of many of their designs, as well as kits and modules. If the project employs a microcontroller and/or PC software, as is now often the case, Elektor normally supply the source code and files free of charge via their website. Most PCB artwork is also available from their website.

Elektor also publish books, CDs and DVDs about audio, microprocessors, software, programming languages and general purpose electronics.

Elektor is published by Elektor International media, headquartered in Limbricht, The Netherlands.

In December 2009 Elektor announced that for the American market a strategic cooperation would be entered with Steve Ciarcia's Circuit Cellar magazine [1][2]

It also features articles about old electronics e.g. from the 1960s that they call retronics.

The English edition of Elektor is distributed in North America (USA and Canada) with ISSN 1947-3753 and in the UK and elsewhere with ISSN 1757-0875.
