Digi-Key, working in the electronic component selection, availability and delivery will, for the first time, feature hands-on demonstrations of its design tools and other online engineering resources at next week’s Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany. Visitors are encouraged to visit the Digi-Key booth – Hall 4A, Stand 631– to experience the company’s complete range of web-based tools.
“Our European customers are telling us that they appreciate our commitment to supporting the entire product design process – from concept to prototype to production,” said David Sandys, director of technical and strategic marketing at Digi-Key. “Making it easy to buy parts is part of the equation. We take it the next step further by offering a full spectrum of EDA tools along with deep and broad resources to support all the needs of the design engineer.”
Digi-Key’s booth is located in Hall 4A, Stand 631 and will feature two computer work stations as well as pinball and slot machines. One of the computer kiosks will showcase demonstrations of the company’s main website features including the BOM manager, online catalog, article, video and reference design libraries, an overview of their EDA tools, and the eewiki.net technical site.
Digi-Key partner, Aspen Labs, will participate in the company’s booth and run the second kiosk to answer questions and share the latest versions of Scheme-It, PartSim and PCB Web. Scheme-it, the popular schematic and block diagramming tool is also now available in local language for the German audience.
Digi-Key’s director of applications engineering, Randall Restle, will be giving a presentation on Tuesday, February 24th from 10:00-10:30 am (Session 04/I). The session is titled “Coupling real-time elements in the IoT. A requirement to reach Industry 4.0”, and will review problems coupling real-time embedded elements together and further extend to issues of coupling them over the Internet.
