Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation and UBM Electronics’ Design News have launched the Digi-Key Continuing Education Center.

The Digi-Key Continuing Education Center is a free virtual training service created exclusively for electronic, design and test engineers. The program, designed by Design News, provides courses that allow engineers to increase their knowledge and network with peers and thought leaders.

"Digi-Key has actively sought business partnerships that allow us to provide product and complementary educational information to our customers," said Tony Harris, Digi-Key’s CMO. "The Digi-Key Continuing Education Center is a great asset to engineers who desire to increase their knowledge base. With increasing demands on engineers to create and produce quality technology, it is even more important for them to be able to access continuing education resources. We take pride in offering the most in-stock product available for immediate shipment as well as the resources and information necessary to make the engineer’s job easier."

The first course series - Microcontrollers, Basics - begins January 16, 2012 and will be presented by lecturer, Jon Titus, contributing technical editor for Design News, and Alexander Wolfe, Content Director for Design News.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with Digi-Key to bring this education to design engineers," said Alexander Wolfe. "I am overseeing the development and the courses to ensure that we are providing our audience with top-notch content. This education allows engineers to increase their engineering knowledge and stay current with key trends."

Future series include Microcontrollers, Advanced; Sensors; and Basic Industrial Control Processing.

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation and Aspen Labs, creator of EEWeb, have produced the industry's first online schematic drawing tool, Scheme-it.

"Digi-Key is excited to launch Scheme-it, the industry's only fully-online schematic tool," said Tony Harris, chief marketing officer, Digi-Key Corporation. "With Scheme-it, engineers are able to easily create the blueprint for any design while gaining access to Digi-Key's expansive product listing in one online experience."

"Scheme-it is a new design tool that allows engineers, students, and enthusiasts to quickly create and share electronic schematics from directly within their web browser," said Joe Wolin, Aspen Labs.

Scheme-it allows users to:

* Design electronics schematics and technical diagrams.
* Utilize an integrated electronic symbol library and the Digi-Key component catalog.
* Keep track of parts used in each design with Digi-Key's Bill of Materials (BOM) Manager.
* Share drawings with other engineers via email and/or web link.
* Export drawings to an image for personal use.

Scheme-it runs natively in all major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome, and does not require the use of browser plugins. Users must be registered to save designs on Scheme-it.
