Digi-Key Recognizes Upcoming National Engineers Week by Celebrating Innovation and Product Design

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - February 16, 2016

Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, today announced their participation in the 2016 National Engineers Week.

National Engineers Week gives Digi-Key an opportunity to celebrate the innovation customers put into their products and, in doing so, helping the industry introduce new and improved electronic products.

The week is also a chance to acknowledge the strides that have been made in bringing engineering to the forefront through things like the maker movement. Now, professional and amateur designers alike can find electronics they need to make the devices that in small and grand ways advance civilization.

As part of a series of activities honoring the design engineer, Digi-Key will feature a link to a daily word jumble on the homepage of its website beginning Monday, February 22. Each day, 25 participants who answer correctly will be chosen to receive a Fluke 117 Meter. In addition, participants with correct submissions for all five puzzles will be entered to win a Fluke 190 Series ScopeMeter Kit.

"Digi-Key was started by a maker professional so we understand the problems, needs, and solutions engineers encounter on a daily basis," said Randall Restle, Vice President of Application Engineering at Digi-Key. "We have our own team of engineers and technicians who are available 24/7 to assist customers with their design decisions, and we are committed to stocking the latest, most advanced electronics we can get our hands on for you to use in ever more advanced or elegant designs."
