Digi-Key Electronics Adds DKRed Custom Circuit Board Option to PCB Builder


Reading time ( words)

Digi-Key Electronics, the leading global electronic components distributor, launched the new DKRed program in its PCB Builder tool, which will allow makers, hobbyists and students to quote, source and order smaller quantities of custom print circuit boards (PCBs).

DKRed is a low-cost, quick-turn live feature in PCB Builder that has a minimum order quantity of just 4 boards, which can be as small as 1x1 inch. The turnaround time from ordering to delivery is approximately 10 days, with free shipping to all 50 U.S. states.

"With the launch of DKRed, Digi-Key is further committing to its mission of being a one-stop shop for turning a concept into reality for all customers," said Missy Hall, senior director, new market development for Digi-Key. "We are proud to enhance our PCB Builder tool to ensure that all stages in the design and development journey are supported, from design to prototyping, sourcing and beyond."

Digi-Key's PCB Builder tool, which launched in June 2020, streamlines the PCB ordering experience and allows customers to receive instant quotes from multiple PCB companies all in one place. PCB Builder is part of the Digi-Key Marketplace initiative, which provides a singular shopping experience for all things related to technology innovation -- IoT, industrial automation, test and measurement and more.

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
