Analog Devices, Digilent Introduce Analog Design Kits

Analog Devices and Digilent introduced two all-in-one analog design kits: Digilent Analog Discovery Design Kit and Digilent Analog Explorer Design Kit. The two kits help engineering students build and test a wide range of analog and digital circuits using their own PC without the need for any other equipment. The Digilent Analog Discovery Design Kit will be available in June for $99. The more advanced Digilent Analog Explorer Design Kit will be available in August for $199.

Digilent Analog Discovery Design Kit

The Digilent Analog Discovery Design Kit and the Digilent Analog Explorer Design Kit are low-cost analog hardware development platforms. They include access to downloadable teaching materials, online support, textbook, reference designs and lab projects to design and implement analog circuits as a supplement to core engineering curriculum.

The two all-in-one analog design kits enhance engineering students’ educational experience by enabling students to experiment quickly and easily with advanced technologies and build and test real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime on their PCs. This eliminates the time and space limitations of traditional university lab settings and gives students more flexibility to experiment with real circuits through direct hands-on experience.
