Digi-Key Corporation Announces Addition of Reference Design Library Beta to Online Resources

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - March 31, 2011

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the addition of Reference Design Library beta to its expansive online resources.

Reference Design Library beta is an interactive resource for design engineers looking for a proven circuit for their project. This library is unique as it allows filtering based on the designs' measured performance. Engineers can find a growing variety of AC/DC and DC/DC conversion, audio amplifiers, and lighting driver designs along with motion and power management resources.

"There is a tremendous amount of IP in the form of app notes and reference designs that are being offered in the public domain to accelerate engineers' time to market," said Dave Doherty, vice president of global supplier and product operations. "Aggregating existing proven designs with measurable performance specifications from our suppliers into more searchable, user friendly formats is just one of many new tools we are introducing for engineers in need of assistance."

This addition to Digi-Key's website is located on the homepage at www.digikey.com under the "Resources" section. New models and solutions are added to the Reference Design Library beta each week. Check back often to see the updated content.
