Digi-Key Corporation and Aspen Labs Launch One-of-a-Kind, online 'Scheme-it'

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - December 13, 2011

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, 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 at www.digikey.com to save designs on Scheme-it.
