Digi-Key Corporation, a global distributor of electronic components, and Altium , have announced a global distribution agreement.
Digi-Key will be distributing Altium’s Desktop NanoBoard, which would include a 12-month timed Altium Designer licence. The Desktop NanoBoard will be delivered with a standard set of plug in peripheral boards and a choice of one of three FPGA daughter boards.
Altium’s products, stocked by Digi-Key, are available for purchase directly from Digi-Key. Altium markets the combination of the Desktop NanoBoard and Altium Designer, which is Altium’s unified electronics design solution. The Innovation Station provides solutions for rapid prototyping, concept exploration and device experimentation. Designers can also create functionality in programmable hardware and then deploy to physical hardware for testing and analysis.
The NanoBoard is reconfigurable and independent of device vendor and designers need not choose the final device at the beginning of the design process. They can create, test and analyse functionality in different devices using the NanoBoard as well as switch between devices to compare the performance in the actual design.
