Digilent was founded in 2000 by two Washington State University electrical engineering professors; Clint Cole and Gene Apperson. Cole and Apperson saw a need for a basic programming board to integrate with their class lectures. Students learn best by doing, so Cole and Apperson developed a teaching method that integrated lecture with hands on learning, by utilizing their boards. Soon, they were producing boards and selling them throughout the world, fulfilling their desire to make technology understandable and accessible to all.Support
