Digi-Key Corporation Key Developments

Digi-Key Corporation Reports Sales Results for the Year 2014

Digi-Key Corporation reported sales results for the year 2014. The company's total 2014 global sales of $1.76 billion reflect a growth rate more than three times the average for the electronics industry. The company credits its strong performance to its hybrid distribution model, built around its promise to offer the broadest selection of in-stock components, a unique competence in high-mix, low-volume orders and ultra-efficient, next-day product delivery.

Digi International Expands Global Reach with Digi-Key

Digi International announced an expanded, global distribution agreement with Digi-Key. Digi's complete product portfolio is available through Digi-Key. Design engineers around the world now have access to the full-range of Digi's RF, Embedded, and Cellular Components. Digi's M2M products include embedded system-on-modules; RF products, including XBee modules, gateways, modems, adapters, range extenders, and sensors; cellular gateways/routers; and Rabbit modules and single-board computers.

Digi-Key Expands Portfolio of EDA Software Tools

Digi-Key Corporation announced an expanded, comprehensive suite of EDA tools. The new and updated software options enable design engineers to streamline the entire (PCB) design process -- from prototype to production. Ranging from Digi-Key's free Scheme-It tool to new higher-end design options co-developed with Mentor Graphics, the global distributor is the first to offer a complete ecosystem of product design tools. The Digi-Key design tool ecosystem features a suite of tools created by Aspen Labs -- Scheme-It, PartSim and PCBWeb -- complementary diagraming, simulation and PCB design environments that simplify the entire product design cycle. Customers have already created over 37,000 designs in the popular Scheme-It online diagramming tool and have run over 400,000 circuit simulations in PartSim. PCBWeb has a newly enhanced feature set and is now a fully integrated desktop-based PCB design and layout environment. Not only does PCBWeb enable engineers to easily complete printed circuit board design and layout, but they may now order PCBs from the manufacturers and purchase their entire bill of materials through Digi-Key directly from within the tool. In addition, Digi-Key partner Mentor Graphics co-developed a set of professional-level EDA tools based on the EDA provider's popular DxDesigner and PADS series. The software includes free access to Mentor Graphics' PartQuest(TM), a fully integrated website that merges Digi-Key part numbers with symbols and footprints, reducing manual errors and saving time and cost. New jointly developed Designer Schematic and Designer Layout tools are available at a 30% discount, starting at $199 and $449, respectively.
