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.

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.

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.

Barry Olney’s High-Speed Simulation Primer

04/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.
