Digi-Key Helps Fuel Innovation at Embedded World 2017

Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - February 28, 2017

During Embedded World 2017 in Nuremburg, Germany Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, will have representatives on-hand at booth A4-631 to talk about how their breadth of product can help fuel innovation and get designs to market faster. Visitors to the booth also have the opportunity to use free tokens to play on one of many slot machines for the chance to win a USB memory stick.

"We are excited for the opportunity to interact with engineers and customers and look forward to answering any questions they may have and hearing their views on how we're doing," said Hermann Reiter, Director of Sales for Central & Eastern Europe. "Digi-Key is continuously responding to feedback in order to make sure our website and resources are designed to fully enhance our digital relationship with customers, such as giving easy access to more than 5 million parts with our industry-leading search tool."

As part of Student Day on Thursday, March 16th Digi-Key will be giving students the opportunity to register to win a Digi-Key InstaLab Kit. Entrants can register by scanning the QR code or going to the URL listed on the flyer which will be handed out on Thursday. Attendees can also register to win by visiting the Digi-Key booth in 4A-631 or kiosk located in Hall Brüssel, NCC Mitte. Drawing for the winner will take place the week following Embedded World.

The InstaLab was created with the intention of providing enough gear to turn an electronics student's dorm room into their own maker space. The kit includes over 20 different products from many of Digi-Key's supplier partners and is customized to meet European power standards.

Digi-Key is also partnering with OpenSystems Media to give away development kits from numerous supplier partners. Visitors to the OpenSystems booth can register for a daily drawing to win one of several development kits from: Analog Devices, Cypress Semiconductor, Digi-International, Digilent, Silicon Labs, STMicroelectronics, TE Connectivity, Texas Instruments, and Trinamic.
