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, Mouser vice president of supplier management. "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 and our customers." One of the newcomers is the Digilent Analog Discovery USB oscilloscope, 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. 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.”
