Welcome to 2015! (And a new semester for you students and professors out there.) 2014 was an exciting time for Digilent, a year of change and preparing for growth. Hiring new people, new customer-facing tools, the launch of eleven new products and a new president!
Steve Johnson became president of Digilent in July of 2014 after working closely with us since January of 2013. Clint Cole transitioned to the position of CTO, allowing him to get back to his chief passion of creating the new technology we work with.
In Steve’s words, “2014 was a great year for Digilent. We had record sales, we hired key new personnel in every department, we introduced many new and exciting products ranging from very low cost to extremely high-performance (like the NetFPGA-SUME and Basys3 board), and we kicked off some major projects to ready Digilent for continued growth. A key focus of 2014 was ensuring that our growing customer base had all the resources they needed to be successful, and to head this initiative up we created an Applications & Systems Engineering department. This team manages our new forum and Wiki areas on our website, which are rapidly growing and becoming indispensable resources for our customers (and even our employees!). We are looking forward to 2015, so get ready for many exciting new product introductions in all of our product areas, a new website look and feel, and more relevant content whether you are a hobbyist, educator, student, or pro, and enhanced service and support.”
Join us in making 2015 Digilent‘s best year yet!
