Digilent recently attended the pre-conference workshop session at the American Control Conference (ACC) at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon. We were there to provide support for the Analog Discovery, which was being showcased in the pre-conference workshop “Ubiquitous Hands-On Learning: The Future of Engineering Education”. Workshop speakers included Bonnie Ferri, Al Ferri, and Deborah Warner. In addition to the presenters, 9 attendees were there. After discussing student involvement in engineering education, participants were able to play with various test and measurement devices.Read More
Imagination Technologies is making its innovative FlowCloud technology available to developers, including the maker community and hobbyists, to speed application development for the Internet of Things (IoT). FlowCloud support will be available on several low-cost development boards with MIPS CPUs across a range of operating systems.Read More
Fritzing is a free tool that allows users to create clean and professional images of electronics projects for teaching or sharing. Digilent uses Fritzing in all of our intern-created projects, and we’re working closely with Fritzing to have a bin of Digilent parts soon.Read More
The story behind the Analog Shield began with Dr. Gregory Kovacs, professor at Stanford University, who saw the successes his students had with the Arduino Uno and use that as a bridge into the world of analog electronics. However, the analog features on the Uno were limited and he needed to create a platform that would enable all of the concepts he wanted to teach on one platform. So when Dr. Gregory approached us and asked if we wanted to make his Analog Shield, we said, “Absolutely!”Read More
As the chipKIT ecosystem and user base continue to expand, there’s a growing need for more flexible ways to mount these boards. After all, the standard form factor hole-pattern leaves much to be desired when it comes to mounting your host board into your project. Which is why we created the zUNOTM Clip for chipKIT, Arduino, and Arduino form-factor boards.Read More
Digilent’s EU Design Contest will be held at the Technical College in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on May 17-18. This year, we will have around 38 teams in the final presentation! BlogPictureContestants will be doing chipKIT microntroller/robotics projects and digital design systems based on the Xilinx ARM System on a Zynq. All project entries can be found at the design contest site.Read More
We’ve been building student-focused design kits for more than fourteen years, and I thought it might be time we shared some information about our company and our mission.Read More
