Mouser has reached a distribution agreement with Digilent Inc., a subsidiary
of National Instruments. Diligent is a leading engineering design company
serving students, universities, engineers, and OEM's worldwide with
technology-based educational tools.

"The entire range of Digilent's design tools offers an exciting addition to
the Mouser Electronics product portfolio," said Russell Rasor, vice
president of supplier management, Mouser. "Mouser has been committed to
education since its founding and continues at every level to foster new
generations of design engineers. This partnership is a huge win for Mouser

Steve Johnson, Digilent's president, said: "With an industry-leading global
distributor such as Mouser Electronics we will now be able to expand our
mission to educate design engineers in new countries and markets. With
Mouser's strength in distribution, its renowned service and high-speed
delivery system, and their focus on design engineers, Mouser is uniquely
suited to the needs of Digilent by helping us reach our customers."

Products available from Mouser include:
1 - The Digilent Analog Discovery USB Oscilloscope is a multi-function
measurement tool that turns any PC into a powerful engineering test device.
Driven by the free WaveForms software, the Analog Discovery lets you build
and test analog and digital circuits in virtually any environment, in or out
of the lab. The USB-powered Analog Discovery plugs into the USB port of any
PC, allowing it to act as a combination oscilloscope, logic analyzer,
spectrum analyzer, digital pattern generator, voltmeter, and more. It's
small enough to fit in your pocket, but powerful enough to replace a stack
of lab equipment.

2 - The Digilent ZYBO Zynq-7000 Development Board, features rich,
ready-to-use, entry-level embedded software and digital circuit development
platform. The ZYBO provides an alternative to designers that wish to
leverage the massive processing power and extensibility of the Zynq AP SoC
architecture. The board has a companion textbook, The Zynq Book, available
to use in conjunction with the ZYBO.
