This question already has an answer here:
I think we need another incarnation of Stack Overflow for electrical engineering questions. I just answered this question on Stack Overflow which probably should have been marked as Not Programming Related, yet it's one of a family of questions that need a good community to ask and also are tangentially related to programming. I propose that this new site, if created, be for questions about circuit design, selection of components, and things of that nature. Not "how do I replace my iPod's battery". Should we go forward?
I even thought up a potential name for it... Spark Overflow.
