THIEF RIVER FALLS & ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, USA: Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corp. announced the addition of Silicon Engines to its listing of design firms on Digi-Key’s Design Services Providers online resource.
“By including Silicon Engines to our newly launched Design Services Providers resource, we are enabling a productive connection between engineers and experts in medical electronics, industrial controls, automotive electronics, and more,” said Mark Zack, Digi-Key’s vice president of semiconductor product.
“We’re really proud to join Digi-Key’s Design Services Providers network,” said Kerry Berland, president of Silicon Engines.
“For many years we have been relying on Digi-Key as our primary source for electronic components for engineering projects. They greatly accelerate our design process—selecting alternative parts, avoiding components that will be difficult to procure in volume, and getting prototype parts over-night. By making it possible for us to compress engineering project timelines, Digi-Key is helping us save our customers many thousands of dollars in lost time. We hope our new role as a Design Services Provider will give us the opportunity to apply the skills we’ve developed for the benefit of Digi-Key customers.”
Silicon Engines specializes in embedded control applications, products in which a microcomputer and associated digital and analog circuitry yield an automated product solution. They design motor drivers, power supplies, keyboard and display interfaces, data communication interfaces, and RF circuitry. The company provides services in electronic design, schematic capture, PCB layout, prototype builds, and testing, and they manage production manufacturing. Their software engineers are familiar with the most popular processor families, including the ARM Cortex M3 and many others.
Digi-Key’s Design Services Providers Network offers fee-based high quality, efficient, system-level engineering and consulting services, including design feasibility, hardware/software electronic development, prototyping, PCB design, and manufacturing. Consulting services provided include ARM Cortex, FPGA, lighting, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Linux, and DSP technologies. With expertise in a wide range of product applications and embedded systems, these design firms can help designs get to market faster, finish projects on time, and provide short-term assistance.
