Welcome to Digi-Key’s beta of Mentor Graphics Designer Schematic

Welcome to Digi-Key’s beta of Mentor Graphics Designer Schematic





Digi-Key and Mentor Graphics have partnered to develop “Designer”, a scaled-down version of the popular DX Designer software. Using Mentor Graphics top-rated PCB design solution technology as a foundation, the team’s objective centered upon creating a solution that is easy to use out of the box, as well as easy to learn.  The teams also focused on providing instant access to the complete Digi-Key PCB part inventory, providing error-free part ordering through Digi-Key, and promoting a community of Design Service Providers and PCB board manufactures and PCB assembly firms.


Designer is composed of two products:


  • Designer      Schematic => Design Entry
  • Designer      Layout => PCB physical design


This beta is focused on Designer Schematic.

Designer Layout will be introduced in the future.



Designer Schematic Beta users will also have beta access to Mentor Graphic’s web-based PartQuest™ tool. PartQuest is a stand alone product provided by and supported by Mentor Graphics that provides component search plus symbol and footprint generation for all of Mentor Graphics' customers.
